Former Chicago Bulls player Luol Deng sells Northbrook mansion for $1.8M

Former Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng on June 14 sold his seven-bedroom, 10,100-square-foot French Provincial-style stone mansion in Northbrook for $1.753 million.

Now with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Sudanese-born Deng, 31, played for the Bulls from 2004 until he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014. Last summer, he signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Lakers.

Through a land trust, Deng paid $2.4 million in August 2009 for the mansion in Northbrook.

Newly built at the time he bought it, the mansion has six en-suite bedrooms, eight baths in total, a library, a two-story family room, a two-story foyer, a bridal staircase and a master suite with a spa, a fireplace, a sitting area, a bathroom with dual vanities and a private terrace with new decking.

Elsewhere in the mansion are two laundry areas and a kitchen with a large island, two Sub-Zero refrigerators, granite countertops, a walk-in pantry, custom mahogany cabinets and a six-burner Wolf range. The mansion's 3,300-square-foot lower level has two fireplaces, a home theater, a bar area, high ceilings and a custom gym. Outside on the 1.1-acre property are a stone portico, three patios and brick circular and side driveways.

Deng first listed the mansion in 2015 for $2.8 million. He reduced his asking price to $2.495 million in early 2016, to $2.195 million last July and then to $1.95 million in October.

Public records show that the buyer is another land trust. Listing agent Melissa Siegal of @properties, who also represented the buyer, declined to comment on the transaction.

Last year, Deng paid $6.15 million for a 6,518-square-foot contemporary-style mansion in Los Angeles' Brentwood area.
