Former Kings coach George Karl sells his home in Sacramento’s Arden Park

Veteran basketball coach George Karl, who was relieved of his duties as head coach of the Sacramento Kings this year, has sold his home in Sacramento for $910,000.

Karl was given a four-year deal with the Kings in February 2015 and bought the remodeled two-story in the Arden Park neighborhood that summer for $870,000. Following his firing, the property came up for sale three months ago with an asking price of $945,000.

Built in 1950 and renovated a year ago, the 3,180-square-foot house features subdued hues, modern fixtures and light hardwood floors. A tiled backsplash creates visual interest in the eat-in kitchen, which opens to a formal living room with a wall fireplace.

Other living areas include a family room, an office nook, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master suite has a separate sitting area, a walk-in closet and a frosted-glass door that opens to the grounds.


Outdoors, there’s a swimming pool with a baja shelf and a waterfall feature. Lawns, landscaping and a patio fill the remaining quarter acre.

Kim Pacini-Hauch of RE/MAX Gold Sierra Oaks was the listing agent. Lindsay Martin of Redfin represented the buyer.

Karl, 65, is the fifth most-winning coach in NBA history, having passed former Lakers coach Phil Jackson on the all-time list last year. He had previously coached the Seattle SuperSonics and the Denver Nuggets, winning league coach of the year honors with the latter in 2013.
