The bills for a $2.7 million beach house in Madison must be expensive, because UConn basketball Coach Jim Calhoun groused that he doesn’t make enough money.

“I’m underpaid,” he said to this reporter while walking into the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce breakfast Monday, July 20 at a hotel in Cromwell.

Calhoun and his wife Patricia purchased an 1850 vintage 3,300 square foot oceanfront cottage at 43 Soundview Avenue in Madison on November 30, 2005 for $2.7 million. See the property card from the Madison assessor here.

Without divulging the price tag publicly, Calhoun mentioned his summer home while introducing NBA All-Star Caron Butler as the Middlesex Chamber’s Role Model of the Year.
