DePaul University head men's basketball coach Dave Leitao and his wife, Joyce, paid $1.575 million in late December for a five-bedroom 4,850-square-foot mansion in Lincoln Park.

Leitao, 55, has been DePaul's head coach since last year, although he's on his second tour of duty at the school. He also was DePaul's head coach from 2002 until 2005.

Built in 2005, the all-masonry house sits on an extra-wide corner lot and has a square interior layout, high ceilings, wide crown moldings, custom window treatments and a kitchen with Sub-Zero and Viking appliances. Other features include a lower-level rec room with a built-in entertainment center, an attached two-car garage, a fenced yard and a large deck with a pergola.

The house most recently had been listed for $1.699 million.
