What we know about Jimmy Johnson’s home

Jimmy Johnson’s home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms over 3,600 square feet of space. The house, which sits right on the oceanfront, was built in 1993.

There is also a private pool on the property with a two-car garage. The home also features cathedral ceilings, with a screened-in porch and balcony and a personal deck with access to the water.

It is 125 miles from Cuba and Jimmy regularly fishes out on the water. The likes of Bill Belichick and Troy Aikman have been known to join him from time time.

Hurricane Irma caused damage in 2017

In 2017 Johnson’s home was rebuilt after it was damaged by Hurricane Irma.

The extent of the damager was reported by Sports Illustrated, who spoke with Jimmy at the time. ‘There was two feet of ocean sand in his pool with the Tiki bar on his property,’ they reported.

‘His dock, shredded. His long driveway, covered with what appeared to be seaweed, tree residue and at least one power pole sheared somehow by the roof of his Tiki hut. There’d been 18 inches of water that flowed onto the first floor of his home.’

Jimmy said that it hurt seeing how much damage had been caused to the house he’d spent 30 years building up. However, the former Cowboys coach was defiant and vowed to stay and rebuild it back up.

“It’s my home,” he said. “It’s the most beautiful place in the world. I’ll never leave.”
