KNOXVILLE - (WBIR) The sprawling home where the late legendary basketball coach Pat Summitt lived and entertained is listed for sale at $1.225 million.
The house sits on a private cul de sac at 3720 River Trace Lane off Alcoa Highway in Blount County.
Sharon Bailey is the listed agent. An online Realty Executives Associates feature can be seen here.
The home features huge decks, a lakeside dock, pool and pool house, along with 260 feet of water frontage, according to the advertisement.
Bailey said Summitt bought an existing rancher on the site and added to it. She also built separate entertaining space and a "bunkhouse" that could sleep a dozen.
Players stayed there as well as son Tyler Summitt and his friends, Bailey said.
Summitt liked the location because she could get to the University of Tennessee quickly and easily on Alcoa Highway.
Not that that was ever a problem considering her lead-foot driving habits, Bailey told 10News.
The main house, which has a raised ceiling, exposed beams and skylights, includes a master suite along with a second bedroom on the main level. There's also an outdoor kitchen, and the grounds include "multiple entertaining areas."
"It’s got this really neat guesthouse pavilion and kitchen and pool," Bailey told 10News, moments after showing it Tuesday.
Summitt, the longtime Lady Vols coach, not only lived at the house but liked to host events there. When her team was preparing for the annual spring NCAA tournament, she would invite players over as well as the media to watch the selection process.
Summit died June 28 at age 64 after battling early onset Alzheimer's for five years. At the time of her death she'd moved to a senior living center in Knoxville.
"The girls, when they were all here for the (July 14) memorial, wanted to go out and have one last tour," said Bailey, a friend of the family.
Summitt also held many charity events at the house, some with colleague and former athletic director Joan Cronan.
"She loved to cook and entertain," Bailey said. "There’s a lot of history there."
