Longtime Indiana Pacer Austin Croshere puts Malibu spread up for sale or rent

Austin Croshere’s Malibu home

High in the hills of Malibu, about a half-mile from the ocean, former NBA player Austin Croshere is looking to pass his architectural estate. The hillside spread is listed for sale at $6.2 million or for lease at $25,000 a month, records show.

That’d be quite a jump from the price Croshere paid; records show he shelled out about half the asking price — $3.05 million — for the home in 2012.

Designed by architect Steve Kent, the 5,300-square-foot contemporary home takes in panoramic ocean views through custom walls of glass. Clean lines frame the living spaces, as floors of Ash wood and Basalt stone give way to wraparound decks.


On the main level, a dual-sided fireplace anchors the living room, and an indoor-outdoor dining area connects with a sleek, whitewashed kitchen. A floating staircase leads to the top level, where a loft expands to a rooftop lounge with a fireplace.

Including the guest house, there are a total of five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The one-acre grounds offer a bevy of outdoor spaces, including an expansive wood terrace and a flat, grassy yard.

Catherine Bindley and Susan Cosentino of Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.

Croshere, 43, enjoyed a 12-year career in the NBA, spending most of his time with the Pacers alongside stints with the Mavericks, Warriors, Bucks and Spurs. The 12th pick in the 1997 NBA Draft, he helped lead Indiana to the NBA Finals in 2000, where they lost in six games to the Lakers.
