When some people get fired, they drown their sorrows at the bar. But when football coach Charlie Weis got fired by the University of Kansas in 2014, he apparently bought a Florida equestrian estate.
And now the horse farm that a buyout bought is now up for grabs, since Weis has listed his 10-acre Lake Worth, Florida, pad for $3.9 million, which is still considerably less than the $5.6 million and change that Kansas paid him to quit coaching football, and the $19 million buyout Notre Dame paid him.
Public records show that Weis purchased the property in 2015, Creative Loafing Tampa Bay reported. The home is located in the Homeland subdivision, which caters to the horse-loving set.
The property has a spacious four-bedroom, 3-and-a-half bathroom home, six-stall barn with a separate apartment, dressage arena, pond, five paddocks, and additional five acres to spare.
“This lovely property comes complete with a new well, impact windows, two propane tanks and a generator servicing the entire house and barn,” said listing agent Robert Ross.
The house has 4,123 square feet of living space, with plenty of lush landscaping and a pool with natural rock and a waterfall.
“The welcoming framed glass door opens into an elegant space with timeless ceramic stone floors, decadent crown molding and a sophisticated ambiance,” Ross said. “Past the formal dining-room and into the kitchen where you will find high-end stainless steel appliances, gas stove top and wet-island for any chef in the family.”
Weis was an assistant coach with the New England Patriots until 2004, when he left to coach Notre Dame. He was there five seasons before being fired, and then coached at Kansas for two seasons before being fired there.
