Bears QB buys $950,000 suburban home

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky shelled out nearly 1 million dollars for a six-bedroom, 5,577-square-foot home in Gurnee. According to Chicago Tribune, Trubisky made the purchase through a land trust this past fall and interestingly: The home was once owned by former Bears wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad.

Trubisky’s new home at 6562 Persimmon Way is part of the Merit Club area of Gurnee, which uses a Libertyville mailing address. Built in 2005, the house has 6½ baths, two fireplaces, a grand foyer, a two-story family room, with a second floor featuring three en suite bedrooms, and downstairs: a finished walk-out basement. Outside, the home has an outdoor kitchen, a brick patio, a fire pit and a hot tub.
