Tom Hermanlet Houston down. Tom Herman’s biggest letdown is hisdefense. Tom Herman beat Oklahoma — let him live. Just a few talking points for a new owner to draw up when hosting watch parties at the University of Texas football coach’s former home, which is now for sale in a tony Bellaire neighborhood.
Herman’s former dwelling on 5221 Pine St. is nestled in Bellaire’s sought-after Braeburn Country Club Estates. The white brick, traditional 2004 Bellaire Showcase home,offered by John Daugherty, Realtors for $2.045 million, was remodeled in 2016 after Herman sold it and sits on an 18,900-square-foot lot.
Herman purchased the home in 2015, updated it, and sold it in June 2017; it was barely on the market for a month. The next owners repainted the exterior (from red brick), interior, and added extra amenities. The home has only been on the market since mid-October.
“This home offers one of the larger lots in Bellaire,” says Lisa Kornhauser of John Daugherty, Realtors. “Interest has been great in this short amount of time. With its premiere location, the oversized lot, and unique amenities, this won’t last long on the market. It shows beautifully.”
The house boasts five bedrooms (with first-floor master), a two-story living room, a large library, and spacious dining room, according to the listing. “The oversized study with a sitting area, along with a formal dining connected to a formal living room, allows for wonderful entertaining areas,” notes Kornhauser. A second-story “flex” room offers a chance for a fitness center.
The property offers plenty of outdoor entertaining options, with an oversized pool and pool chiller (a must for those Houston summers), lighted pergola, new summer kitchen, and big-screen TV. Should power suddenly go out during a pivotal UT-Oklahoma showdown, there’s even a generator.
Kornhauser says a big selling point is the 835-square-foot guest house with kitchen and full bath. “This would make a great guest house or man cave,” she notes.
So is this abode best suited for Coogs (some of whom are still upset at Herman’s jump to Texas in 2016 after two strong years) or proud Longhorns, who expect Herman to take them to the promised land? “This house does not discriminate,” says Kornhauser. “Coog, Longhorn, or Aggie — anyone would be lucky to live in this amazing home.”

""Jemila guided us through the entire process. She took great care of us and goes beyond the duties of a realtor. She not only did an amazing job selling our home, she is vital in the process of getting us into a new one. She and her team (Patrick) went out of their way to accommodate us and our hectic schedule and it is greatly appreciated. As I said before, she did a great job as a realtor, as we sold the house for more than I was initially expecting but she was a better advisor. At one point, we were questioning if we should sell the home and she provided great advice that allowed us to weigh the options ourselves and tell her what was in my family's best interest for the long-term. I would refer her in a heartbeat! She really understands that selling your home is a huge decision and can be a daunting process. Every step of the way, we felt she was right there supporting and protecting us throughout the entire process. We are currently working with her on building our dream home.""
