Former Sixers coach Larry Brown has sold his Bryn Mawr estate for $4.02 million – a little more than half its original asking price – nearly two years after he put it on the market.
Brown, now head basketball coach for Southern Methodist University in Dallas, originally asked $7.85 million for the home, a Colonial on more than 4 acres.
Brown and his wife, Shelly, purchased the 10,800-square-foot home in 2006 for $5.65 million – several years after he had already left the Sixers.
The property, known as "Linden Hall," has seven bedrooms and nine baths. Custom millwork, vaulted ceilings and stone fireplaces give the home an Old World feel. On the lower level, luxuries include an exercise room, a "retro-style" soda fountain and a home theater.
The master retreat has his-and-her closets and spa-like baths. Also on the ground floor is a gourmet kitchen, a large living room and dining room. According to the listing, the mansion was recently expanded and renovated.
Outside, there's a pool and pool house with stone terraces.
Brown, a Hall of Fame basketball coach, is the only head coach to have won both an NCAA title (University of Kansas) and an NBA title (Detroit Pistons).
