Ex-Bull Gordon drops price on townhome

Posted Feb. 1 at 12:44 p.m.

By Bob Goldsborough | Elite Street | Former Chicago Bulls guard Ben Gordon has tried to sell his three-bedroom townhome in Northbrook since August.  Now, he has become motivated, cutting the 2,465-square-foot townhome’s asking price on Jan. 10  to $610,000 from $800,000 .

Gordon, 27, played for the Bulls from 2004 until 2009, when he signed a five-year, $55 million deal with the Detroit Pistons.

Gordon clearly expects a loss on the six-room, end-unit town home he bought in 2004 for $660,000.  Built in 1999, the home is in Northbrook’s gated Royal Ridge area and has 2 1/2 baths, custom closets, a finished basement, a fireplace and pond views.

“It’s really open, and he’s done custom work all over the house, including in the master bedroom, the dining room and the closets,” said listing agent Donna Grant of Rubloff.

Four other Bulls have owned in Royal Ridge in recent years.  Bulls forward Luol Deng  owns a three-bedroom, 2,511-square-foot townhome he bought in 2004 for $672,000. He had it listed for six months last year for $639,000.  Former Bulls forward Andres Nocioni owns a 2,465-square-foot end unit — the same model as Gordon’s but next door to Deng’s — that he bought in 2004 for $650,000. Former Bulls guard Thabo Sefolosha still owns a 2,511-square-foot unit that he bought in 2006 for $630,000 and listed for a week last spring for $599,000.  And former Bulls center Tyson Chandler paid $1.18 million in 2003 for a 3,068-square-foot single-family house in Royal Ridge, which he sold in 2006 for $1 million.
