New Kings coach Dave Joerger can 'feel the passion' of Sacramento
Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger has found a home, purchasing an equestrian ranch estate on 10 acres in El Dorado County, according to local real estate officials.
The Sun Ridge Ranch property is in Shingle Springs and was purchased for around $1.35 million. It’s about 35 miles east of Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center, where the Kings will open their 2016-17 season in just a few weeks.
Public records show the sale closed July 29.
The home search has been active since May, when the 42-year-old Joerger and his wife, Kara, started looking at regional properties for their move from Memphis, Tenn., where Joerger previously coached the Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association.
The Joergers have two daughters, Kiana, 10, and Alli, 13. The Shingle Springs property appears to address the family’s needs nicely. It’s close to Sacramento with plenty of space for living, horses and riding.
The family has five horses and South Dakota native Kara Joerger is a competitive barrel racer.
In the online listing, the property is described as featuring four bedrooms, an office and loft, a large kitchen with granite counters and professional-grade stainless steel appliances, three fireplaces, an outdoor kitchen, an eight-car garage, a detached guest quarters and gym, three ponds and a 10-horse barn with wash rack, tack room and hay storage.
It also includes a 75-by-140-foot covered arena and a 60-foot-round pen, plus fencing and four pastures.
Overall housing space is listed at 5,441 square feet. The two-story home was built in 2004, according to listing records.
