BLACKSBURG — Former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer and his wife Cheryl have put their $2.2 million dollar home at 1700 Mountainside Dr. in Blacksburg on the market.
Beamer confirmed the listing through a spokesperson with Virginia Tech’s athletic department. According to Beamer, the family is just looking to downsize and has no plans to leave the Blacksburg area.
The 8,781 square foot custom-built home was perfect for hosting Hokies players for much of his tenure (the home was built in 2001), but Beamer hasn’t needed as much space since stepping down at the end of the 2015 season.
Beamer’s home, located to the east of Virginia Tech's campus on nearly two acres of land, has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
The listing offers a detailed description of the property that features four fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen (with double oven, wine cooler and pantry), a golf simulator, exercise room, hot tub and treadmill hot tub room.
The former Tech coach remains an active presence on campus taking a daily walk around the athletic facilities when he's in town. He was the commencement speaker for his alma mater in May and he's the spokesman for the school’s “Drive for 25” campaign to increase funds and membership in the Hokie Club. Beamer is also in the final year of a three-year term serving on the College Football Playoff committee.
