The former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn is selling his Suwanee, GA, mansion for $2.2 million. It was initially listed for $2.4 million in January, but the price was cut by $200,000 earlier this month.
Quinn purchased the home for $1.99 million in 2015, shortly after being named the Falcons’ leader. After a rough start to the 2020 season, Quinn was dismissed last fall, in the middle of his sixth season at the helm. After the firing, he took the role of defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys.
Set on just under an acre on a cul-de-sac, the luxurious estate was built in 2009, and is located inside the gated enclave of The River Club. It includes five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and four half-bathrooms, on 8,356 square feet of living space.
The entry features a two-story foyer with paneling that extends up the soaring ceilings.
With high-end details throughout, the home has a large dining area with a wall of windows. Inside the formal living room, there’s a fireplace and coffered ceilings. A family room with a stone fireplace and vaulted ceilings opens to the outdoor spaces.
A chef’s gourmet kitchen includes custom cabinets, two steel sinks, a large island, and a walk-in pantry. The suite of appliances include a Wolf range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Bosch dishwashers, a wine fridge, and a beverage cooler. A nearby breakfast area provides spectacular views of the private and scenic backyard.
The home’s master suite is located on the main level. The desirable design includes a sitting area complete with a morning bar with sink and fridge.
The master offers a spalike bathroom with dual walk-in showers, dual water closets, marble counters, and a custom closet. The main level has a home office, laundry room, and two powder rooms.
On the upper level, there’s a second option for a master suite with dual closets, a large shower, and a custom shelving system. The floor also includes three more bedroom suites, with a second laundry. A terrace level offers an exercise room with a half-bathroom. The property also includes a wood-paneled library, game room, media room, and a four-car garage.
Outdoors, the living area includes a walk-out pool, covered patio with timbered ceiling, fireplace, and a custom, built-in barbecue.
The exclusive gated community has been the home of many athletes and celebrities, including the newly retired quarterback Matt Schaub, who recently listed his home.
Other residents have included the former baseball player Brian McCann, Jeff Francoeur, formerly of the Atlanta Braves, who has had his home on and off the market in recent years, and the comedian Ron White.
Quinn, 50, worked his way up through the coaching ranks beginning in the mid-1990s. He eventually became the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks and coached that unit to a Super Bowl win in 2013.
During his tenure with the Atlanta Falcons, Quinn led his squad to Super Bowl LI in his second season as boss. That accomplishment, however, will probably be overshadowed by the final score. After the Falcons had built up the largest lead in Super Bowl history, the team lost to the New England Patriots, 34-28.
Stacy DeRogatis with Keller Williams has the listing.
