<div id=”js-article__body” itemprop=”articleBody” data-sbid=”WP-MKTW-0000249764″>

Former Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester hopes to secure a buyer for his Chicago home, the Chicago Tribune reported. He and his wife, Farrah, have put their elegant abode on the market for $ 5,995,000. The couple bought the luxury property in 2015 for $ 3.78 million, after Lester signed a six-year contract with the Cubs for $ 155 million. He played a key role in the team that captured the long-awaited World Series championship in 2016.

Like the five-time All-Star, his home is also a winner.

Located in the Graceland West neighborhood of Windy City, the home was built in 2010 and offers five bedrooms and 5.5 baths on 7,000 square feet. In the not-so-underrated language of the list: “This house has it all.” The extra wide layout features a first floor with a family room, family room and dining room. The gourmet kitchen opens onto a family room and includes a butler pantry. An office is installed next to the kitchen. A master suite offers a wall of windows, a fireplace, an en-suite bathroom with double vanities, and a giant walk-in closet with an island. Since there are so many bedrooms available, one is currently used as a gym. The home also features multiple entertaining areas, including a private roof deck with planters. For warmer days, there is an outdoor shower accessed through the attic living room and bar. The finished lower level is a cozy place to retreat in the colder months, with wood paneling, a fireplace, a bar, and a wine cellar. The outdoor space includes a 5,000-square-foot side patio with a living room and fire pit, and the property also has a four-stop elevator to all levels. The detached heated garage has space for four cars. Additionally, Lester expanded the adjacent lot to use as an “amazing outdoor living and play area,” adding a sports court and outdoor kitchen. Lester, 37, is now with the Washington Nationals on a one-year deal after six seasons with the Cubs. He broke into the big leagues with the Boston Red Sox in 2006 and has also prepared for the Oakland Athletics. In 2019, Forbes named the Washington state native one of the highest paid athletes in the world. Bradley Brondyke of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
