Nine years after finishing what he considered his dream house, one that he could retire in, former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis is moving on to a different dream.

Weis has listed his Granger-area home, located just south of the Michigan state line, at $2.35 million. The home was built in 2006, one year into Weis' five-year tenure as the head coach of Irish football. He went 35-27 at his alma mater before being fired in 2009.

The home features six bedrooms and seven bathrooms within 8,417 square feet. Listed by realtor Cressy and Everett, the home is billed as "an equestrian lovers dream house offering the most coveted and prestigious address in Granger."

The brick ranch home is situated on 10 acres and also features a baseball field, in-ground pool, eight-car garage, horse stables and a heated indoor equestrian arena.

Taxes run $23,553 per year.

Purchasing the property for the listed price of $2.35 million with $47,000 down on a 360-month loan with an annual percentage rate of 3.625 would give the home owner a monthly mortgage of $8,574.

In March, Weis sold a home in Marion County, Fla., for $1.2 million. He bought the home during his one season as offensive coordinator at the University of Florida.

Weis was fired last fall by Kansas after going 6-22 in two-plus seasons as head coach.

In February, the 59-year-old Weis told NDI's Eric Hansen that it's unlikely he ever coaches again.

The Granger-area home of Charlie Weis, now on the market, includes six bedrooms and seven bathrooms within its 8,417 square feet.
