Former NFL and XFL linebacker Mike Croel and his wife, Cassaundra, have sold their Sunset Strip-area home for $1,912,000.
The renovated contemporary has four bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms in 5,380 square feet of living space. The gated two-story has four fireplaces, high ceilings, a domed skylight and exposed wood, creating the feel of a ski lodge inside the house. The walled compound includes a guesthouse and a lagoon pool.
Croel, 39, was named the NFL rookie of the year in 1991 when he was a member of the Denver Broncos. He also played for the New York Giants, Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks. In the XFL, he was with the Los Angeles Xtreme.
The Croels are looking at Beverly Hills-area homes with easier access to schools, according to listing agent Ernie Carswell of Teles Properties, Beverly Hills. Carswell shared the listing with Sarah Blanchard of the same office. Deedee Howard of Prudential California Realty, Beverly Hills, represented the buyer.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
