Amongst the many perks that come from it is the ability to live in a multi-dollar mansion, such as that of Kliff Kingsbury, the coach of the Arizona Cardinals On the 24th of April 2020, the Cardinals tweeted a photo of Kliff’s $4.45 million house.
The photo featured Kliff Kingsbury in a spectacular looking room, working at a pair of monitors, and was captioned, “War Room 2.0”. The room This was taken during the
2020 NFL draft, which, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was held virtually in a WFH (work from home) manner.

could boast a house like Kliff’s. The tweet, along with a series of other photos of the NFL coach’s house, went viral on social media platforms, the original post getting over 60,000 likes and 6,000 retweets.

Inside The Kliff Kingbury’s House
The contemporary, custom-built house takes up 7,200 square feet. It was completed in 2017. Kliff Kingsbury bought this luxurious mansion for $4.45 million shortly after he was hired as the Cardinals’ coach in early 2019. The house is located in Paradise Valley, a town of 15,000 located in central Arizona.
The area is well known for its luxury resorts and million-dollar estates. Coach Kingsbury’s elegant house was designed by world-renowned architect Ilan Pivko, and it would be an
understatement to say that he did his job well. However, Kingsbury did state that for the photoshoot, he changed the house up a little. It is a lovely home, and the Cardinals Chief
made it even more so by thoroughly arranging everything.
“Going into it I knew I was going to be super extra in the picture,” Kingsbury said. “I do think the fire, it was 100 degrees and sunny, was a bit much, but I laid four phones on the table because the NFL gave us a couple. All the screens, I just wanted to make it as extra as possible and it turned out good. It made for fun. The NFL only allowed us to have one person at the house or I might’ve had some people on the float swans in the back, or a DJ, really doing it big.
There’s always next year, hopefully.” The NFL Coach’s house is a dream house for everybody. The overall style is crisp, sleek, and uncluttered. Lindsay Kadlick, the interior
designer of the spectacular mansion that started a storm on twitter, spoke to Veranda Magazine about the house. Below is an edited version of their interview.
What was that room?
In the photo that initially went viral on Twitter, Coach Kingsbury is sitting in the living room, which faces south overlooking the impressive resort-style backyard with the spectacular view of Camelback Mountain in the distance. The mountain is an iconic local landmark, and it derives its name from the profile seen at sunset, as it resembles the hump and head of a kneeling camel.
The view is amazing, but what makes the room the ultimate work-from-home location? The floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors create an inseamable transition in between the interior and exterior, which makes the spectacular living room a charming location to work and relax. The fireplace anchors the living space and creates a point of reference for furniture placement. A large, serene location that anyone would like to have for work or even to just spend time.
What else happens in the living room?
While it is not seen on the Twitter photo, the room hosts a doublesided, full-height glass wine enclosure, which has capacity for over 500 bottles of wine. That backyard looks lit. In Arizona, the weather’s great pretty much all year round, which makes it a must for the backyard to be an extension of the interior.
The yard is composed by large rectangular pool with integral spa, a low profile fire pit, an outdoor pavilion that includes a pool bath, and a gourmet kitchen equipped with a grill and multiple refrigeration units. The combination of hardscape and turf laid in a clean grid pattern play off the architecture of the home.
So much for the living room, how about the rest of the house?
The kitchen! It’s a beautiful Bulthaup kitchen loaded with Subzero and Wolf appliances, including a teppanyaki grill and a built-in coffee maker. The house also has a five-car garage and a large theatre room.
What else did Lindsay Kadlick, the architect of this spectacular mansion, have to say about the house?
Lindsay confirmed that from the start of design and construction, the style they had in mind was a perfect fit for the NFL Coach. He was very glad to see that the world was able to get a glimpse of the home as it was intended.
