Former Chicago Bulls guard-forward Jimmy Butler on Monday officially listed one of his Chicago-area properties — a six-bedroom, 10,000-square-foot mansion in River North — for $4.95 million.

Named to his first All-NBA team in 2017, Butler, 27, starred for the Bulls for six seasons until his June 22 trade to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Now Butler has decided to list his mansion in River North's Kingsbury Estates area.

Through a land trust, Butler paid $4.3 million in 2015 for his mansion, which was built in 2008 and has 5½ baths, three fireplaces, an elevator, electric shades, a custom staircase, a 750-bottle wine cellar, a landscaped roof deck, a home theater, a workout room, two other outdoor spaces and an attached, three-car garage.

Listing agent Colin Hebson of Dreamtown Realty said the elements that Butler put in the mansion were "negligible." He touted the finishes put in when the mansion was built in 2008, including custom cabinets, a "massive game room on the top floor" and "spectacular outdoor finishes."

"This is a spectacular house," Hebson said. "And this house is only $580 per square foot, whereas condos in the (nearby) Ronsley (condo conversion project) are $725 per square foot."

Hebson confirmed that Butler remains under contract to buy two condominium units in the nearby Ronsley condo building, which is not yet completed. Hebson said he does not yet know if Butler will keep those or sell them after he closes on those purchases.
