WMAQ-Ch. 5 10 p.m. co-anchor Rob Stafford and his wife, Lisa, sold their five-bedroom house in Hinsdale on June 26 for $1.25 million.

The couple sold their house because they are moving to Chicago's West Loop, Rob Stafford said. In 2015, the Staffords bought a West Loop condo unit pre-construction, and with their two oldest children now living in the city and their condo's construction set to be completed this fall, "we couldn't be more excited about living in the West Loop," he said.

The Staffords had lived in Hinsdale since 1993. In 2000, they paid $1.0335 million for the 3,640-square-foot home that they have just sold, which was newly built at the time. Features include 5½ baths; an open floor plan with built-ins; French doors; oversized moldings; a first-floor office; a master bedroom with a balcony; a family room with a stone fireplace; a lower level with a rec room; and a kitchen with custom cabinets, an island, and Viking and Miele appliances. Outside on the property are a loggia, fireplace and patio. The couple first listed the house in 2014.

Stafford said he and his wife loved raising their children in Hinsdale. With their youngest child graduating from college next year, he said they are "looking forward to the next chapter in our lives."

"I just love the West Loop. It feels like I'm close to work, but I can't actually see work, and it's not a high-rise. And it has all these great new restaurants," he said. "It's a great place."

Stafford, 58, has been battling amyloidosis, and after a bone marrow transplant and chemotherapy, he is undertaking a new round of chemo that he said is "more manageable." He said he expects to be back on the anchor desk by the end of August.

"I'm feeling good, and I'm ready to get back on the air," Stafford said.
