Nine days ago, Tyson Chandler was celebrating an NBA championship after his Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat in a six-game series. Yesterday, Chandler enjoyed another victory of sorts: after four years, he finally sold his former home in Northfield.
Chandler paid $4 million for the 20-room house in June 2006, when he was playing for the Chicago Bulls. Three weeks after he bought the place, he was traded to the New Orleans Hornets, and ten months later he put the Normandy-style mansion on the market priced at $5 million. Over the next few years—for some short stretches of which, it was not actively marketed—the house was listed with at least three different agents and underwent a series of price cuts. In June 2010, the price landed at $2.895 million, or 72 percent of what Chandler had paid for the home when it was newly built. The house went under contract in April 2011, and on June 20th, the sale closed at $2.1 million—only a little more than half of what Chandler had paid for it.
Situated on more than half an acre, the house has six bedrooms, seven full and two partial baths, three fireplaces, and a four-car garage. Millie Weinberg of Coldwell Banker handled the sale. The buyers are not yet identified in public records.
