Former Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton and his wife, Jordan, listed their six-bedroom, 5,347-square-foot Nantucket-style home in Lake Bluff for sale for $3.25 million on Tuesday.
Dalton, 36, signed with the Bears in March 2021 and was the team’s starting quarterback for the first two games of that year before suffering a knee injury and then becoming the backup to Justin Fields. He signed with the New Orleans Saints as a free agent the following year and is now pitching for the Carolina Panthers.
Dalton paid $2.475 million for the Lake Bluff home through a limited liability company in May 2021. Built in 2005, the home has 6-1/2 bathrooms, four fireplaces, high ceilings, wide-plank white oak floors, a living room with a custom bar, a first-floor den with ceiling ceilings and a family room. It has a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and an updated kitchen with white quartzite countertops, white custom cabinets and an island. Other features include the lower level with a game room, exercise room, additional bedroom and recreation room with luxury vinyl flooring and gas fireplace. The home’s master bedroom suite features an outdoor terrace and a marble bathroom with a large shower and separate soaking tub.
The home has a three-car garage, fire pit area, a fenced backyard and several flagstone patios.
“It’s…in a great location east of Lake Bluff and it’s on almost an acre, which is pretty rare,” listing agent Alissa McNicholas of Compass told Elite Street, though she declined to comment on the owners or even confirm their identities. He refused. . “It has been beautifully updated and offers much of what buyers want in today’s market. Move-ready, ground game, flow – everything about it makes it a truly great proposition. They transformed him. “Fully updated and ready to use.”
The McNicholas are the co-listing agent for the home, along with Lori Baker of Compass.
The home had a property tax bill of $48,582 in the 2022 tax year.
