In April, Philadelphia lost one of its most enduring sports pioneers in longtime Flyers owner Ed Snider, who passed away at the age of 83 after a two-year battle with cancer.
More than two months later, the Wall Street Journal reports that the Snider estate has listed the late chairman's majestic Montecito, California estate for $52 million.
The Italian-style home, constructed around 2001, is a sight to behold. Situated on approximately 9.4 acres, the property contains eight bedrooms, a one-bedroom cabana, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a swimming pool, a tennis court, a pavilion with a wet bar, a home theater with seating for 20, and a rooftop viewing deck.
Snider purchased the property in 1994 and made several additions to its grounds in the ensuing years. He spent much of the 2015-2016 Flyers season in California as he and his family dealt with his illness.
