Not a Slam Dunk

Former Bull’s house still for sale nearly two years after trade

In September 2005, Tyson Chandler signed a new contract with the Chicago Bulls, the team for which he had played since 2001. The deal, reportedly worth about $63 million, promised to keep the 22-year-old forward/center in town through 2011.

NORTHFIELD

List price:
4.5 Million

“To know that I will be in Chicago for the next six years is definitely a dream,” said Chandler. The following June, he closed a deal to buy a newly built mansion in Northfield for $4 million. Three weeks later, the Bulls traded Chandler to the New Orleans Hornets.

Nearly two years later, Chandler’s 20-room, Normandy-styled mansion remains for sale. The hoopster first offered the house at $5 million—according to his original sales agent, Chandler had installed an elevator and other upgrades at a cost of about $1 million—but he lowered the asking price to $4.5 million when the listing moved to Margie Brooks of Baird & Warner this past November. (Chandler did not respond to a request for comment.)

The brick and limestone house has more than 10,000 square feet of living space, four fireplaces, a four-car garage, and a home theatre and a wine cellar in the basement. The 11-foot ceilings on the first floor—and the ten-foot ceilings upstairs and in the basement—are high enough to provide even the seven-foot one-inch Chandler plenty of headroom.
