Former Chicago Bears head coach John Fox and his wife, Robin, on Monday bought their six-bedroom, eight,161-square-foot, country-fashion mansion in Lake Forest for $2.875 million.
Fox, who was fired by the Bears in January 2018 and now’s a studio analyst for ESPN’s “Monday Night time Football,” and his spouse took a loss on the 2-story mansion, which they purchased in 2015 for $3.275 million from retired Bears vast receiver, sportscaster and speak show host Tom Waddle, who had purchased the mansion in 2010 for $three.25 million.
Inbuilt 2008 and situated on a 1.78-acre parcel that’s just south of the personal Onwentsia Club hyperlinks, the lannon stone and wooden home has seven baths, 4 fireplaces, a brand new elevator with access to all flooring, a completed, three,500-sq.-foot lower degree with a cinema room and a second kitchen, copper gutters, a 4-automotive garage, a cedar shake roof, a butler’s pantry, a first-flooring main bedroom and a big, eat-in kitchen with an island.
The Foxes first had listed the mansion in April 2018 for $three.395 million, they usually later minimize their asking worth to $three.095 million.
Public data do not but determine the customer. Itemizing agent Lori Baker declined to comment on the sale.
The Foxes continue to own their six-bed room, 14,866-sq.-foot mansion in the Quail Hollow area of Charlotte, N.C., which they tried to promote from 2015 until 2017. It most just lately had been available on the market for $6 million.
