Want a 10,000-plus square foot house with two football names attached?

University of South Florida football coach Jeff Scott listed his house, which was previously owned by ex-Bucs coach Lovie Smith, on the market last week. The listing price is $3.35 million.

The six-bedroom, six-and-two-half bathroom home is at 4901 Turnbury Wood Drive in Tampa and sits on 14 acres, according to the listing. It lies within a gated “exclusive village” that consists of only four houses, all on large lots, within the greater Tampa Palms community.

The home features a billiards/game room, children’s playroom, home theater, gym, 800-bottle wine cellar and garages large enough for seven cars, the listing says. A pool and spa overlook a fishing pond “and your very own wooded sanctuary.”

The foyer features a wrought iron staircase and the home also has stone columns, decorative ceilings, two fireplaces and a lanai. Outdoors, there is a putting green with a sand trap, according to the listing.

Records show that Scott purchased the home from Smith, who listed his wife, MaryAnne, on the deed, in January 2020 for $2.5 million. The Smiths had purchased it in 2014 for $3.475 million.
