Former Chicago Bears star Brian Urlacher has cut the price on his massive mansion in Libertyville, IL. It’s now available for a shade under $2 million.
The NFL player first placed the suburban spread on the market in 2017, hoping for a $3 million score. With no takers, the price has been drastically lowered, by one-third.
Built in 1987, the secluded estate contains seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and three half-baths. In total, there’s 11,000 square feet of living space on 9 acres with a pond and two barns.
“The most spectacular feature is the land,” says listing agent Alex Wolking. “The entire property is bordered by mature trees, yet the land is open and sprawling, which makes you feel as though you are in your own little corner of the world. It’s incredibly peaceful and private.”
Inside the home, the master suite includes a huge walk-in closet, bathroom, balcony, sitting area, and private laundry. The layout features a large living room with walls of glass and a stone fireplace. The eat-in kitchen also contains a cozy brick fireplace. The space includes a formal dining room, an office, as well as a finished basement.
Echoing the listing agent, the listing details note, rightly enough, that the home was “designed for privacy, and most of all, fun.” The main level boasts a game room with bar and media area.
Outside, the acreage includes a full-size basketball court, in-ground trampoline, putting green, and an outdoor grill and patio area that’s perfect for entertaining. For the youngsters, find a two-story playhouse and swing set. Or plan to go fishing in the stocked pond The barns allow you to bring your horses, or provide extra storage for say, a car collection.
Located in a village in Lake County, the affluent suburb of Chicago is convenient to Lake Forest, shopping, commuter trains, and ranches and stables.
The 40-year-old played his entire career with the Bears, from 2000 until 2012, when he retired. In 2018, the fearsome linebacker was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
