Chicago Bears backup quarterback Chase Daniel and his wife, Hillary, recently paid $1.489 million for a newly built, five-bedroom, 4,237-square-foot traditional-style house in Glencoe.
Daniel, 32, joined the Bears in March after signing a two-year, $10 million contract with the team. He currently is the backup quarterback to Mitchell Trubisky.
In Glencoe, the two-story house that the Daniels bought has 5½ baths and sits on a quiet cul-de-sac. The home has a kitchen with an oversized Cambria quartz island, a breakfast nook, a master suite with an oversized marble shower and double walk-in closets, a lower-level guest quarters, a rec room and a heated 2½-car garage. Outside are a bluestone patio and a Unilock driveway that can hold 10 cars.
The house first had been listed in May 2017 for $1.849 million. Its asking price was reduced five times before its final price cut to $1.549 million in February. The Daniels bought the house through a land trust.
The Wexler Group at Keller Williams Preferred Realty represented the Daniels. Wexler Group CEO Tammy Northcutt declined to comment on the deal.
Daniel isn’t the only high-profile Bear to own in Glencoe. Star linebacker Khalil Mack recently paid $3.75 million for a six-bedroom, 6,100-square-foot mansion in Glencoe.
