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.
