UCF Football Coach Gus Malzahn buys $4.1 million Orlando-area home


Though those closest to the deal are keeping mum, the Orlando Business Journal reports that the University of Central Florida's new football coach Gus Malzahn just plopped down big money on a mansion on Winter Park's Via Tuscany.

The 6-bed, 6-and-a-half bath is stunning throughout, with many different living rooms to wow the parents of potential recruits. The home at 1460 Via Tuscany also features a gym, butler's pantry, home office and truly jaw-dropping pool area. Construction was completed in 2009, at a cost of around $1.2 million. The decade-plus of market speculation and population booms has ballooned that price to a healthy $4.2 million, something Malzahn can swing thanks to a 5-year, $11 million contract with the Knights.

Though the sale is already pending, the listing agent is Sam Hillman of Winter Park's Fannie Hillman & Associates.
