Newly-minted Cubbies outfielder David DeJesus closed on this 6,000 sf brick mansion in Wheaton more than a month ago, according to Bob Goldsborough's Elite Street column. That was well before he got inked to a two-year deal with the Cubs. He must have been feelin' the vibes. First listed for $1.55M in April and last shown at $1.275M, DeJesus brokered himself a nice mark down, reportedly paying just $1.05M for the 1992 five-bed. Celebrities always get the deals. There's five bathrooms and five fireplaces to match. Recreation features prominently inside the house, with a huge finished basement game room, bar, and putting green. And it'll be nice having nearly 3/4 of an acre to toss the ball around in. The home was previously owned by retired Nalco CFO Bradley Bell. Why Wheaton? DeJesus answered to Goldsborough yesterday: "We have an 18-month-old son, and my wife grew up in Wheaton, so all my in-laws are 10 minutes away from our house." If that works for you, David, all power to you.
