Sean and Beth Payton have this yummy beach house on the Gulf coast of Florida in between Panama City Beach and Grayton Beach, Florida. Commenters on NOLA have said he’s fighting to keep it. If I were his wife, I’d fight like hell for it. Hell hath no wrath like a man who comes between a woman and her beach home. Anyhoo, here is the Payton beach house on one of my favorite beaches, Watercolor, near Panama City Beach, Florida. Walk about twenty feet and you are in Seaside.  Sean is apparently super generous with his beach house and it is often loaded with football celebs who get an impromptu game of “7 on 7″ touch football going on the beach that usually generates a lot of Watercolor buzz, especially when Tony and Candice Romo are in the fun.

Payton was the Cowboys assistant coach in Dallas from 2003 through 2005.


Looking at homes in Watercolor, this one is right on the beach and not too far from the Payton’s pad. Because it’s on the beach and ,mere minutes from the Beach Club, this one will set you back about $3,200,000 with 3500 ish square feet, three stories, three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and tons of relaxing porches.

It was about this time last year — well, February 2011 — that Sean Payton got everyone all flustered thinking he was maybe trying to get closer to Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys. Well, of course he wasn’t. He had other fish to fry. But Payton and his family did move to the uber exclusive Vaquero Club in Westake. As in the number one home  to many PGA golfers, current and former Texas Rangers players and other celebrities.  Payton, his wife Beth and kiddos hunkered down in the 8,554 square foot house owned by former Texas Rangers and current New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira. Built in 2005, the house has been on the market since April 2009 with an original list price of $5,750,000.

Just so happens Teixeira’s pad is on the market again, just went on, in fact, Tuesday March 6 at a reduced price of $3,995,000. Wowzers. That’s almost TWO MILLION less than what Tex wanted back in 2009! Which is why we are thinking, geeze, maybe Sean’s heading back to NOLA to keep his team in line.

As for 2220 King Fisher, what a great deal for a great house! You get a rare 1.078 acre waterfront lot at gated, secure Vaquero (HOA dies $1950 twice a year), great traffic flow, spacious covered patio that unites to the living room, keeping room (where he should have put SOME PEOPLE in time out) and media room. The Master is totally out of control. It connects to the spa patio and then the wowzers master bath connects to a private Zen patio. The pool has two gas pots, and a separate patio around a large fire pit. There is a huge game room with bar and two-level office, a media room, five bedrooms, four and a half baths, 4 car garage on 1.078 of God’s green acres: what a steal!

When it comes to homes, anyways. Cannot say I blame him, and I think he has great taste in the places he chooses to live. Wonder if he is buying the younger Jonas place over there on Rock Dove Court….

Here are more photos of the Payton family’s second home in Watercolor, Florida, compete with outside shower. How wonderful is an outside shower?

Plus a romantic spot to watch the sun setting over the Texas Gulf.
