Ex-Blackhawk Lists Lakeview Mansion for $3.199M

Days after his trade announcement, former Chicago Blackhawks player Niklas Hjalmarsson has listed his Lakeview home. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is now on the market, asking $3.199 million.

Hjalmarsson was a three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Chicago Blackhawks, and was recently traded to the Arizona Coyotes, ending a decade-long career in the Windy City.

The former Blackhawk purchased 3821 N. Wayne Ave in April 2015, paying $2.32 million for the new construction home. Hjalmarsson and his wife subsequently purchased the neighboring three-flat for $900,000, demolishing the building to use the parcel as a side yard, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The 4,600-square-foot residence features a brick and limestone exterior, with upscale finishes throughout the interior.

You could rent Scottie Pippen’s house and home gym

All it takes is approximately $8000 per month!


Here’s an article by Chicago Tribune’s Bob Goldbourough detailing the former Bulls star home:

Scottie Pippen’s onetime eight-bedroom, 8,228-square-foot mansion in Highland Park, which the Chicago Bulls great had built in 1993 and sold three years later for $1.75 million, was rented out on Wednesday at $7,995 a month.

Two owners removed from Pippen, the mansion has several reminders of his ownership, including an indoor basketball court with his autograph on the door and gigantic red “33” numerals — Pippen’s uniform number — in ct-ex-bulls-stars-homes-for-sale-20160902-025front of the court’s free-throw line.

The mansion’s current owners listed it last year at $2.199 million and later cut their asking price to just below $1.95 million. They also have offered it for rent on and off since 2015.

Now, a tenant has signed on the dotted line for a term that listing agent Alan Meyerowitz of @properties declined to disclose. He also declined to say why his clients, who paid $1.6 million for the mansion in 2011, have decided to rent it out.
