A former Chicago Blackhawk just sold his Bucktown home for more than $1 million.
Brandon Pirri and his wife Elyse sold their 4,000-square-foot, four-bedroom home at 1908 West Dickens Avenue in Bucktown for $1.12 million, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Pirri was drafted by the Blackhawks in 2009 and skated for the team for five years before being traded to the Florida Panthers in 2014. After three years in Florida, Pirri returned to the Windy City and played for the Chicago Wolves before returning to the Blackhawks last year. He is currently a free agent.
Pirri and his wife bought the home for $920,000 in 2016 upon their return to Chicago. The home hit the market in October 2021 with a listing price of $1.07 million. Less than two weeks later the home went under contract to sell above the asking price.
The property, which was built a decade ago in 2001, has three-and-a-half bathrooms and a remodeled kitchen with quartz countertops and an oversized island. The open-floor-plan home also has a new master bathroom, refinished hardwood floors, upgraded lighting, two new furnaces and a waterproofed basement with a sump pump.
The finished garage, which is accessible from the back of the home on West Charleston Street, is outfitted with a new Tesla charger. Above the garage is a finished rooftop deck with pergola that is located right off of the main family room in the home.
Pirri isn’t the only former Blackhawk shedding property. Former right wing Martin Lapointe sold his contemporary-style Burr Ridge home for just under $2 million in September.
The identity of the buyer of Pirri’s home has not been released yet. The house’s 2020 property tax was $16,929.
Less than three miles away, another athlete, former Chicago Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel is selling his home, which is walking distance to Wrigley Field, with an asking price of $2.5 million. According to Redfin, there is a sale pending on that home.
