One of the last lots on the subdivided Gilded-Age Landsdowne estate was purchased in April by Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy and his wife Stacey, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Nagy’s Lake Bluff real estate purchase now puts three team leaders in the neighborhood—offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich and general manager Ryan Pace live just blocks away. It makes sense given that Halas Hall, the Bears’ training headquarters, is just a short drive away in Lake Forest.
The couple paid $2.75 million for the newly built, Cape Cod-style mansion. The six-bedroom property is just steps away from Lake Michigan and partially surrounded by a deep, wooded ravine. The 9,400-square-foot home comes with a 4-car garage, custom Amish-built cabinetry a high-tech media room plus every bedroom is en suite and there’s a generous outdoor patio.
The massive home sits on 2 acres that were previously part of a 22-acre Gilded Age estate built for Harry Clow, an executive of the Rand McNally family. The original 24-room Georgian mansion, known as Landsdowne, was constructed in 1911 with gardens designed by the Danish-American landscape architect Jens Jensen. In 2007, it sold to a developer for $16 million where he subdivided the massive land and built six other homes.
