When Deion Sanders decided to become a college football coach, he brought along his two youngest sons, Shedeur and Shilo, to join him first at Jackson State University and then Colorado University. Now all of his sons, including the eldest, Deion Jr., are suggesting they’re teaming up to purchase Sanders a home in Colorado.
“Ya’ll are natural givers,” Sanders said to his sons on Well Off Media, a digital platform owned by Deion Jr. “Ya’ll three want to put it together so that ya’ll make sure I’m straight when ya’ll gone [from Colorado]. That’s unbelievable, son. That almost provokes a tear.”
The viral video aired last weekend of Sanders being shown around a home worth an estimated $7.2 million. This home would be a close commute for Sanders, who is worth a reported $45 million, as he heads into his second season as the head coach of the Colorado State football team. Shilo and Shedeur are also returning to play for Colorado State but have been hinting at entering the NFL draft in 2025.
As Sanders toured the home, he exclaimed “This is ‘we gotta win’ house.”
A Look At The New Purchase
Located between the towns of Boulder and Golden, the residence is located in a luxury community in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Surrounded by mountains, it is a selling point for the Sanders family.
“It’s one thing to look at the mountains, but it’s one thing to be in the mountains,” Sanders said in the video. “We’re in the mountains.”
According to the Denver Business Journal, the 17,000 square foot mansion includes six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The entrance includes a grand foyer with double staircases. On the first floor there is a gourmet kitchen and executive office space. There’s also a 15-seat home movie theater, home gym and a wine cellar that is climate controlled.
Upstairs there a master ensuite, a two-bedroom suite for guests as well as an additional two bedrooms with private bathrooms.
Outside, there’s a pool, a fire pit, a tennis court. Fountains can be found throughout the property. An eight-car garage and a barn that is suitable for horses is also present.
Under Contract or Purchased?
Despite several news sources reporting that Sanders’ sons had purchased the property, the family was merely viewing it for purchase. The home has been on the market for 100 days, according to the Denver Business Journal and is not under contract.
However, while Sanders (jestingly) waits for his sons to place the new residence under contract, he won’t be homeless. In February 2023, Sanders purchased a mansion in Longmont, Colorado, for an undisclosed amount. Built in 2016, the home features four bedrooms and a master suite that overlooks Long’s Peak. Located in a luxury community including a 40-acre lake, gardens and 50 fruit trees.
