Retired Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher recently reduced the ask on his Libertyville, Illinois, home to just under $2 million.
The NFL star originally listed the expansive 11,000-square-foot mansion for $3 million back in 2017. Unable to secure a buyer at that price, Urlacher reduced his ask dramatically, giving it a full-third chop in the hope of drawing in the right buyer.
Set on 9 acres in the high-end Chicago suburb of Lake County, the seven-bedroom manse was built in 1987 and holds five full bathrooms and three half baths. The main living room stands out with its soaring ceiling, large windows, and floor-to-ceiling fireplace.
Further inside, the large eat-in kitchen provides plenty of space for food prep and flows to a casual dining space accented with a brick fireplace accent wall, giving the room considerable warmth. A dedicated dining room and a formal living room with a fireplace round out the shared living areas.
The acreage includes two barns, a pond, sweeping lawns, and scores of beautiful mature trees. A putting green, an in-ground trampoline, a full-size basketball court, and a spacious brick patio with an outdoor grill present plenty of opportunities for fair weather recreating. The property’s swingset and two-story playhouse fill out an eminently family-friendly home.
Urlacher started with the Bears in 2000, and remained with the team until his retirement after the 2012 season. He played in eight Pro Bowls.
