A former Blackhawks defenceman and television analyst is asking $4 million for a home in Hinsdale, a western Chicago suburb, that they bought almost two decades ago for about a quarter the price.

Steve Konroyd and his wife Juli, a Compass agent who has the listing, are selling after living in the 12,000-square-foot home on Park Avenue for 18 years, according to Crain’s. The couple, who paid $1.4 million for the seven-bedroom, six-bathroom home in 2001, didn’t respond to a request for comment from Crain’s.

Should the Konroyds get the asking price, it would join at least 31 other Chicago-area sales of at least $4 million this year, a pace that’s set to exceed that of 2021, when a record 101 homes sold in that range. Many of those sales were in the suburbs, where families opt for more space post-pandemic.

Seven Hinsdale homes sold for at least $4 million in the past three years. A mansion there sold for $7.7 million last year, the priciest residential deal in the region and highest ever for the village, easily topping a previous high was $5.5 million.

The Park Avenue house was built in 1872, one year after the Great Chicago Fire. It was expanded in later years, and is on just under an acre of land. Amenities include an elevator, a home gym, a bar and movie theater.

Konroyd played for the Blackhawks for the Blackhawks from 1988 to 1992 and played a single season for the Chicago Wolves in 1995. He played a total of 15 seasons in the NHL before retiring in 1995. He was a broadcast analyst elsewhere before returning to Chicago as a Blackhawks analyst in 2005. The team said in August that Konroyd wouldn’t return for the 2022 season.
