Sean Payton Now OWNS Texas Dirt: New $3.4 Vaquero House Includes Disco With Lighted Floors, Mirrored Ball, Laser Lights, FOG

Share News:

Sean Payton and fam are now officially imbedded in the Lone Star State and you know what that means: they are now card-carrying Texans! In early January, Sean and his wife bought a stunning 7,785 square foot home in a delicious part of Vaquero that is honestly one of the most beautiful homes I’ve seen out there, maybe anywhere. I mean, no offense NOLA, but you would not find a house like this in Louisiana. No way Jose. PLEASE check out this slide show for detailed photos.

2006 Brazos Court is nestled into a cozy Vaquero cul se sac overlooking a pond. The kids can go fish whenever. The home has 7785 square feet, was built in 2006 and features stunning contemporary interiors. Each bathroom has those generous Farmer’s sinks that you usually only see in kitchens, and take note of the Master bath in that slide show: most gorgeous tile ever plus steam shower and a romantic rock fireplace. I love this idea of using the Farmer’s sinks everywhere! (One of my design pet peeves is teeny tiny sinks that let water splash all over tarnation.)

The home has stained concrete floors as well as wood, marble and stone. The foyer has stacked stone walls and a 100 year old giant dark wood antique door, it’s like being in a rock church vestibule. There are five bedrooms, four and a half baths — guess they may need to add a few more according to my latest research — and three living areas. The home is also a Poster Child for green energy efficiency: That super duper insulated SIP foam construction that whittles utility bills to dollars a month even in August, tankless water heaters, thermo windows and highest SEER-rated utilities. And oh my the extras: outdoor kitchen, loggia, fire-pit, salt-water pool, play pool, media room, exercise room, study, and game room with that fabulous discotheque for the kids or maybe, adults? It has a lighted floor, mirrored ball, laser lights, a fog machine and probably a Bose sound system — not sure on that, but whatever brand it’s a killer that will make that game room rock like Carnegie Hall.

I’m a little confused over pricing. The original list price was $3.2 million, actually $3,195,000, but then it appears to have crept up to $3,450,000. Unusual in this market for a home to INCREASE it’s price after being on the market for a year. Z sale? Anyhoo, glad to welcome the Paytons to Texas. I hear they love living in Vaquero and tell friends it’s the most perfect place on the face of the earth. As I told you yesterday, they had been leasing Mark Teixeira’s house but did not renew the lease. No matter what the press has said about Mr. Payton’s coaching skills or style, this wipes the slate clean: he’s got great taste in homes and real estate. In my eyes, he’s a god!

    That's a high price to pay for such tackiness.
    That kind of money could buy you ten well-designed, comfortable homes, instead of one gaudy warehouse with limestone accents.
    A fool and his money holds true yet again, I guess…

    I think it looks great. The only thing I didn't like was in the utility room, that back splash and the counter on the island were hideous. The family room looks like it would be a blast to hang out in.

    Dear Candy,

    No offense taken, sweetie. As a matter of fact, I'm awful glad that this house won't be found in NOLA. Even more important, I'm glad that anyone who would find this house "stunning" or "magnificent" or any other such adjective doesn't live here, including the coach of my Saints. The throughoughly scrubbed existence that is the suburbs of Dallas is the perfect place for this faux-whatever-it's-trying-to-imitate building. And if you hadn't told me it was somewhere in Tejas, I never would have known it's locale since these types of houses have no connection to their "place". But now that I do know, when I'm passing through your republic on my way to any state other than Texas, I'll make sure to gawk at all of the other soulless creations that are firmly planted in the soil there.

    Yours Truly,

    Pierre in NOLA

    Seriously? You can find a house like that in any rich gated community outside of Baton Rouge, the northshore, etc. Hell former hornets minority owner has a house that blows that house away in tiny galliano, LA. Or go to any cookie cutter sun belt city like Charlotte, Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa, etc and you’ll see the same thing. Now if you want to find a house that you can’t find anywhere else, go down St. Charles Avenue and have a look at the white columned, 20+ ft ceilinged, wrought iron gated mansions that dot the garden district. You won’t find anything like that anywhere else!

    You obviously haven’t seen the fabulous homes in uptown New Orleans, or on the Northshore. The house is beautiful, but you can find equally beautiful homes in New Orleans.

    Louisiana native, Dallas resident here. Nice? Yes. Stunning? No. Generic? Yes. Character? No. Typical Metroplex McMansion? Yes. Jealous? No.

    Even luxury homes today are like buying cars: you select your "custom" features and add-ons and negotiate price. Also, the culture of Dallas dictates that if something is old, then it isn't valuable. For that reason, an "old" house in Dallas was built in the 50s, and many of the beautiful crafstman homes of East Dallas and the Lower Greenville area are regarded as tear downs. Even Baton Rouge has greater respect for its past.

    Nice house. Not spectacular, but very nice. The interior decorator clearly graduated from the Stevie Wonder School of Gauche Design, with honors. The stuff inside that house is dog's butt ugly.

Which mean, might we be seeing more of him in the Lone Star State? Maybe time for dancing lessons in that disco in his new home? […]

  3. […] Beth Payton also seeks the exclusive right to make decisions concerning the children’s medical, legal and educational interests and have Sean pay support for the children’s care –education, medical etc. I know she really likes the school the kids attend out there in Westlake. Wonder if he’s going to have to keep up the mortgage, too, on 2006 Brazos Court??  […]
