Longhorns Football Coach Tom Herman Spends $6M on Austin Mansion
Tim Warner/Getty ImagesMaybe it’s time for Tom Herman to do an end zone dance. He left his position as head football coach at the University of Houston to take the same role at the University of Texas.
After he accepted the high-profile gig, the 42-year-old placed his Houston-area home on the market. According to public records, he soon sold the property for between $1.6 million and $1.8 million.
The coach also recently purchased a brand-new home in Austin for $6 million, according to the Austin Business Journal, which called it “a beauty.”
Tom Herman’s brand-new home in Austin, TXrealtor.comThe 10,000-square-foot mansion is part of a 75-acre gated community called Scenic View in the Westlake area of the capital city. The private neighborhood has a green belt and “spectacular views of downtown Austin.”
Built by the award-winning Jauregui Architecture Interiors Construction, the “casually elegant” estate has long-range valley views and sits on a 2-acre lot. (You can watch the home’s construction over time.)
The Mediterranean-style estate has a vaulted entryway, arched doorways, a light-filled living room with beamed ceilings, wine room, and kitchen with walk-through pantry that opens to a family room. There’s also a game room, kids’ wing, guest suite, and master suite.
The property comes with “resort-style amenities” such as a media room with wet bar, yoga studio, infinity pool with fountains, fire pit, and summer kitchen.
The home also backs up against a nature preserve. With Longhorns football season in full swing, Herman is likely too busy to spend much time in his new digs. But with a five-year contract and a base salary of $5 million a year, the coach will have plenty of time to enjoy all Austin has to offer.
