Elite Street | By Bob Goldsborough | Former Chicago Blackhawks right winger and defenseman Dustin Byfuglien on Monday sold his five-bedroom, 4,200-square-foot stucco and stone house in Chicago’s Roscoe Village for $1.08 million.
Traded to the Atlanta Thrashers last June, just two weeks after Byfuglien helped his teammates win the Stanley Cup, Byfuglien had listed the 12-room house on Sept. 28 for just a dollar less than $1.3 million.
Byfuglien, 26, took a loss on the house, which he purchased new in 2008 for $1.265 million. He had lived there with his girlfriend, Emily Hendry.
Built in 2007 and 2008, the house has 3-1/2 spa-caliber stone baths; three fireplaces, including an outdoor wood-burning fireplace; a professional-grade chef’s kitchen; a large family room; radiant heat throughout the lower level; a full attic; a deck atop the garage; and slate, copper and stone accents throughout.
Byfuglien added a state-of-the-art media and entertainment center and security cameras, installed full closet organizers and converted a bedroom into a theater room with a drop-down screen.
