It’s been a whirlwind 10 days for Tyson Chandler. He’s won an NBA championship, been a guest judge on the Miss U.S.A. pageant and then closed Monday on the sale of his Chicago mansion that had been on the market for 4 years. Yes, 4! Originally purchased for $4mm and then listed for $5mm, Chandler finally succumbed to the real estate market with a sale of the 7,309 sq. ft. home in Northfield, IL for $2.1mm.
According to Zillow:
A large, two-story Foyer with walnut and travertine flooring leads to a dramatic two-story Great room with a soaring fireplace and custom travertine floors. The second floor Loft overlooks the Great room and leads to a third story Play room.There is a two-story Library off of the Foyer with walnut hardwood floors, a custom fireplace and an elegant balcony that extends over this room.The Dining room has herringbone patterned walnut hardwood floors, with an alcove for an armoire and two storage closets on either side.The fabulous Kitchen adjoins an inviting Breakfast room and also leads to the over-sized Laundry/Hobby room. There is a wall of granite topped cabinetry, which is ideal for large scale catered entertaining.The home features a spacious first floor Master suite and a huge onyx Master bath with a steam shower, whirlpool and an abundance of closet space.
Oh, and a sweet touch – laundry on both floors!
Don’t worry about Chandler and his $2,000,000 loss. He’s a free agent and about to get his money back.
The players said they want to return, but keeping a player like Chandler might be the most important challenge.
“I don’t need to overstate his importance. We’ll do everything possible to make that happen,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “Tyson Chandler changed our season on a lot of levels. It wasn’t just his play, it was his enthusiasm, his energy.
