Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic in June paid $4.75 million for a six-bedroom, 5,245-square-foot house in Lincoln Park.
Vucevic, 31, came to the Bulls in a trade with the Orlando Magic in early 2021.
Vucevic’s new house was built in 2015 and enjoys amenities from a nearby high-rise including an adjoining 1.25-acre private park. The four-story house has five bathrooms, an entry foyer with four closets, a four-stop elevator, custom built-ins, millwork, a mudroom, an attached garage, a butler’s pantry, an eat-in kitchen with custom cabinetry and commercial-grade appliances, and a primary bedroom suite with a bathroom that has heated floors and a steam shower.
The house also has a roof deck.
The house had been listed in April for $4.9 million.
Vucevic purchased the house through a Florida limited liability company. Florida-based money manager and talent agent Jaafar Choufani, who represented Vucevic, did not respond to a request for comment. Chicago real estate agent Nancy Tassone of Jameson Sotheby’s, who represented Vucevic as well, also declined to comment.
Listing agent Jeffrey Lowe of Compass declined to confirm the buyer’s identity but said one of the house’s draws is the amenities from the nearby high-rise.
“Very few homes have that level of amenities and are single-family,” he told Elite Street.
The house had a $74,826 property tax bill in the 2020 tax year.
