Now that his football career has come to a close, former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is headed south—to Nashville—with his wife (reality TV star Kristin Cavallari) and three young kids. A 2016 labrum injury sidelined him during his last season with the Bears, who released him in March.
That means the 34-year-old’s luxe mansion in Lake Forest—bought by Cutler in 2014 for $4.25 million—is for sale. Listed for $4.75 million with Larry Hitz of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the palatial spread in this tony North Shore community offers 11,000 square feet of living space.
There are seven bedrooms, seven baths, and three half-baths. The home also features an all-white kitchen with a marble-topped island. A freestanding soaking tub in one of the bathrooms continues the all-white-marble theme. Perhaps the most stunning amenity in the home is the first thing guests see in the foyer: a spiral staircase with white spindles and wood steps stained a warm hue.
Sports fans will drool over the basketball court, complete with the Chicago Bulls logo on the hardwood. Another recreational perk? The wine cellar.
The home also comes with a private theater, with a classic design featuring lighting sconces and dusty-blue walls. And, once summer hits, Lake Michigan and a private beach are right in the backyard, reachable by a staircase that stops right at the sand.
