After three seasons as head coach of the Tulane Green Wave men’s basketball team, Mike Dunleavy Sr. was dismissed by the school in March. Now, the former NBA coach is ready to dismiss his home in New Orleans for $3.5 million.
According to property records, Dunleavy purchased the Georgian-style home in the city’s Lakewood neighborhood just over a year ago. The five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom, 8,500-square-foot home has Southern romance and charm to spare and includes an elevator with access to all three floors.
Interior features and amenities include a game room, sunroom, Sonos speakers throughout, and top-of-the-line finishes.
The property is on a double lot, and the spacious outdoor area offers a saltwater pool, spa, putting green, and formal side garden.
The home’s interiors are sophisticated and lush—the kind of spaces where a hard-working coach can unwind after a long day. The whole property offers surprises around every corner, with splashes of color, built-ins, and sparkling, light-filled areas for sumptuous Southern living.
Dunleavy left Tulane University after three years, and had another three seasons left on his contract. He leaves New Orleans with a not-so-hot record of 24-69, and finished his final season at the school with an epic 21-game losing streak. Dunleavy was an NBA player for 14 seasons, a coach in the league for 17 seasons, and won 1999’s Coach of the Year with the Portland Trailblazers.
In the meantime, Dunleavy is ready to pass this luscious slice of the Big Easy to a new owner. It’s a home anyone with deep pockets who is looking for something truly special would consider a slam dunk.
