Soccer coach Juergen Klinsmann is fielding offers on Newport Beach home


Juergen Klinsmann, the head coach of the U.S. men’s national soccer team, is ready to give his home in Newport Beach the boot, listing it for sale at $2.399 million.

The 51-year-old manager and former player bought the house on a corner lot in the Newport Heights neighborhood in 2011 for $1.476 million, public records show.

Marked by a white picket fence, the single-story home of 3,000 square feet has a contemporary yet coastal vibe with crisp white-walled interiors, light hardwood floors and detailed siding throughout.


A Dutch front entry opens to a family room with built-in bookshelves, large picture windows and a two-sided gas fireplaces shared by the living room. A formal dining area sits off the family room.

A remodeled chef’s kitchen and breakfast area sports stone countertops. Clad in seafoam green, the master suite has a clawfoot soaking tub and a walk-in closet for a total of four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

Landscaped grounds include an entertainer’s patio and a large expanse of grass. A two-car attached garage sits off the side of the home.

Adrienne Brandes of Surterre Properties holds the listing.

The German-born Klinsmann, as a player, won a FIFA World Cup in 1990 with West Germany and, in 1996, a European Football Championship with Germany. He has coached the U.S. men’s national team since 2011.
