Home of Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta listed for $1.8M

A certain North Side athlete’s home just hit the market. Chicago Cubs pitcher, Jake Arrieta, that is.

The six-bedroom home Arrieta and his family had been renting was listed for sale Wednesday, asking $1.799 million according to Chicago Tribune.

Built in 2015, the Lakeview home is located just northwest of Wrigley Field, and sits on an extra wide (30ft) lot in the Graceland West community. As tenant, Arrieta enjoyed all the finest finishes you’d expect in a new construction, like a sleek white kitchen outfitted in SubZero, Bosch and Wolf appliances. Additional features of the 5,000+ square foot house include: smart surround sound, radiant flooring, extensive millwork and carpentry throughout the three levels of living space. There’s also a welcoming front porch, back stone patio with a fireplace, and roof deck, all suitable for entertaining.

As Arrieta enters free agency, his offseason home is in Austin, Texas.

Oprah’s Old Condo Gets a Makeover

Out with Oprah, in with Oscar.

United CEO, Oscar Munoz, is the newest resident on the 57th floor of Chicago‘s Water Tower Place — and now lives in the former condo of Oprah Winfrey. As we reported earlier this year, Munoz and his wife purchased the property for $3.55 million in February, thousands less than its asking price of $3.7 million.

In the Oprah days, her former residence occupied a sprawling 9,625 square feet in Water Tower Place. But since she sold it in 2015, the space was split into multiple units and each was renovated. The condo purchased by Munoz is three-bedroom, 3,400-square-foot unit outfitted in sleek, modern design — as seen by newly released photos in Chicago Magazine.

Each of the three bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. Other features include a powder room, a library, a family room, a wet bar area, a large kitchen, a living room and a fireplace. And don’t forget: sweeping views of Lake Michigan.
