Chicago Blackhawks team captain and center Jonathan Toews on Sunday listed his five-bedroom, 6,400-square-foot mansion in Lincoln Park for $3.899 million, just a little more than 18 months after he bought it.
Toews, 28, signed an eight-year, $84 million contract extension in July 2014. Four months later, he paid $3.525 million through his Muskie Trust to buy the four-story brick and limestone mansion.
Now Toews has turned around and placed the mansion back on the market.
"Jonathan is downsizing. He's staying in the city, but he doesn't need this much square footage, so that's why (he's) selling," said listing agent Kai Schirmacher, who is vice president of sales for the Jennifer Ames Group. "He did a nice job of redecorating it, and it shows nicely."
Schirmacher confirmed that Toews has lived in the house since buying it.
Built in 2001, the mansion has five baths, a four-stop passenger elevator, designer window treatments, custom lighting and hardwood floors. Other features include 11-foot ceilings both on the main floor and on the bedroom level, dual closets in the master suite, a penthouse rec room with a wet bar, an outdoor kitchen, a garage-top deck with a pergola and fireplace, a roof deck, an attached two-car garage, a lighting control system and a Sonos audio system.
