Stanford head football Coach David Shaw and his wife, Kori, have bought a multi-unit compound in Rio del Mar, Calif., for $4.5 million.

The property, found within a gated coastline community, faces toward the ocean on a raised lot of more than a quarter-of-an acre and has been divided into four separate residences. A pair of 550-square-foot units with one bedroom suite occupy the ground. The second floor residence consists of a four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence with 2,250 square feet of living space while the third floor is dedicated to a 3,500-square-foot penthouse with three bedrooms and four baths.

The two lower units each have a rock fireplace and large walled exterior patios. The second-floor residence features an open floor plan with a large outdoor deck. Vaulted ceilings, telescoping glass doors and bedroom suites with expansive ocean views are among the features on the penthouse level.

Combined, the property counts nine bedrooms, eight baths and nearly 7,000 square feet of living space.


Shaw, 41, is entering his fourth season as head coach of the Cardinal. He has led Stanford to two Pacific-12 Conference titles and three BCS bowl games since replacing Jim Harbaugh, who left to become the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, in 2011.

Public records show that sale of the property closed in April. The compound had listed for as much as $4.995 million in March. Sally Lyng of David Lyng & Associates was the listing and buyer’s agent.
