New Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton purchased a home in a gated section of the Belcaro neighborhood for $4.55 million on March 6, according to property records.
Payton, who signed a five-year contract for $18 million per year with the Broncos, is the NFL’s second-highest-paid coach behind New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
The 6,000-square-foot home at 401 S. Garfield St. within the gated Belcara community has four bedrooms and six baths. It was the 2022 Boys and Girls Club Dream Home.
The main floor features 11-foot ceilings and a white oak floor in a herringbone pattern. The kitchen includes an oversized island and a glass wine wall holding hundreds of bottles.
The two-story home includes an elevator and a primary suite with a fireplace and dual closets.
Raymond Development Group developed the home and neighborhood. Dawn Raymond, a Kentwood Real Estate Cherry Creek realtor, was the listing agent and also listed as the owner. The home was listed for $4.6 million on Jan. 13.
Rachel Sartin with Corken + Company Real Estate Group represented Payton.
Payton was previously the head coach of the New Orleans Saints from 2006 to 2021. In Louisiana, he lived for a time in a home in Mandeville, which led to him becoming the lead plaintiff in 2009 in a class-action lawsuit against a drywall manufacturer. In 2019, Payton listed a condo he owned in New Orleans for $2.3 million, according to the local newspaper, which also reported in 2021 that he was buying a unit in the Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences then under development in the city. He also bought a home near Dallas in 2012 and listed it for sale in 2014.
Payton declined to comment when reached by email.
