UPDATED March 7, 2022, 2:10 p.m.: A Lake Bluff mansion owned by the former head coach of the Chicago Bears Matt Nagy is on the market for $6.19 million.

The six-bedroom, 9,400-square-foot home that Matt and his wife Stacey bought four years ago, was in the real estate agents’ private listing network on March 2, according to the Chicago Tribune. The couple bought the home on Lansdowne Lane for $2.75 million, less than half of what they are planning to sell it for.

Nagy, named head coach of the Bears in January 2018, was fired in January following a dismal record of 34 wins and 31 losses in four seasons. He will be returning to the Kansas City Chiefs as quarterbacks coach.

The home, built in 2017, features a home gym, outdoor fire pit, and a Bears-themed basketball court painted orange and blue with a Bears logo on the padding under the hoop. When the house was for sale in 2018, a listing from Premier Realty Group said the house had Amish-built cabinetry, a media room, a bar in the basement, and a rear patio facing Lake Michigan, according to the publication.

Co-host of the Bear Down podcast Brendan Sugrue wrote about a “coming soon” listing from Compass for Nagy’s mansion on Twitter on March 5, but was taken down from the brokerage’s website with a “temporarily off market” label the next day. The listing remains actively listed in the private network.

Lake Bluff is also home to Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton, who signed a one-year $10 million contract with the team last year. Dalton and his wife, Jordan, bought a five-bedroom, 5,300-square-foot home for $2.48 million in an off-market deal after it initially was listed for $2.595 million.

Chicago’s luxury residential market had a record year in 2021, with more than 100 homes sold for $4 million or more, double the average of 51.5 over the past six years. Real estate agents attributed the strong market to gains in the stock market and buyers’ demand for more room to work or attend school from or even private beaches that allow physical distancing.
