Need a luxurious getaway?
Retired Chicago Bears linebacker and Hall of Famer, Brian Urlacher, has put his 6,829-square-foot, seven-bedroom mansion up for rent. Now, for the mere cost of $9,000 a month, you can rent his 9.4-acre estate in Mettawa and pass quarantine over like a celebrity.
Urlacher first put his mansion up for sale a couple years ago. While the mansion — located 36 miles from the loop — is still for sale at just short of $1.8 million, it is now available to rent in the meantime.
The former football player, who now lives in Arizona, is marketing his estate to Chicagoans living in the city seeking a retreat to the country during quarantine.
His listing agent, Alex Wolking, told the Tribune:
“We’re offering it either for a long-term rental or for a sale. The main reason is, I have had a number of inquiries over the past two weeks from people in the city looking for a summer rental in the country to escape the city and all of the pandemic chaos.”
Presently, the price of rent is $9,000 a month, or $10,000 with utilities and furnishing included.
Urlacher initially purchased the estate for $2.3 million back in 2004. The mansion, formerly owned by Chicago-based solo artist, Richard Marx, features seven bedrooms with five bathrooms and three half-baths. It has a wet bar, finished basement, and game room, with a master suite complete with a balcony, reading space, and a luxurious walk-in closet.
It also comes with a full-sized basketball court.
