Sean Payton is Moving to North Texas. And Has a Second Home in Florida

Share News:

More North Texas real estate news. The coach of the New Orleans Saints is not leaving the Saints to join the Cowboys, but he is moving his family to Vaquero, in Westlake,  from New Orleans, according to The Times-Picayune. Sean Peyton apparently has bought (or plans to buy) a home and plans to enroll his children in school in their new Texas neighborhood toote suite. According to ESPN, Payton became interested in Vaquero when he lived in nearby Southlake, during his tenure as an assistant coach under Bill Parcells with the Cowboys.

So how’s he going to get to work? Easy. Private jet. Payton estimates that flying on a private plane is 90 minutes door to door from his office at the Saints complex to the family’s new home. He and his wife, Beth, apparently intend to eventually retire in North Texas. This is the deal Payton wanted all along, but the T-P reports that Saints owner
Tom Benson insisted on the entire Payton family living in New Orleans.

Well, all that is changing. Oh and the Payton’s have a second home on the Gulf Coast in Watercolor, Florida, one of my very favorite second home haunts. (See photo of the house.) Moved in Memorial Day, 2009. I can tell you this: Tony Romo will probably not be taking his fiance, Candice Crawford, to this beach bungalow, like he did Jessica Simpson in 2009. The locals say she was clomping all over the Boardwalk in her four-inch stilettos.

Next up: which Vaquero home is he buying. I swear, Vaquero: Home of the Sports Superstars.  Or maybe, TMT: Too Much Testosterone. Forbes listed it as the most affluent neighborhood in the entire country!

    I was showing out there before the snowstorm of '11 and it was crazy busy with agents, atheletes, and civilians … all looking at homes, and such lovely homes at that. Dallas County doesn't have a lock on nice houses…come on Miz Candy… give Southlake and Westlake and Colleyville a look see …

      Crazy busy? I live there and, trust me, it is NOT crazy busy, and has not been for a LONG time. WAY too many houses for sale, and even 2-3 foreclosures. My real estate value has PLUMMETED since we got there. And that new road going in out front? Forget it. Super great place to be, but hardly “crazy busy” or even close.

    Oh I'd move to Westlake in a heartbeat. You feel like you are in the country but you are close to everything. And do you know that in Vaquero they will deliver food and meals to your home from the Country Club? In fact, we need some retirement town homes out there…

      Sean Payton has NOT bought a home in Vaquero. He is renting. If you want the address, email me with his former Southlake address, and, if you are right on that, I’ll give you the new one.
