A former Cubs pitcher set a new record, but not in baseball. Sean Marshall, who pitched for the team from 2006 to 2011, sold his 7,000-square-foot Lincolnwood home for more than $2.18 million — the highest home sale price in the inner Chicago suburb to date. The listing spent three months on the market, Crain’s reported.

Prior to this sale, there hasn’t been a Lincolnwood home sold for more than $2 million, according to data going back to 2006.

Marshall first listed the property in April with an asking price just under $3 million, but lowered it by more than $200,000 a month later. Joe Semany of Compass was the listing agent.

Built in 2003, the home sits on just under a half-acre. It has modern architectural features and includes marketable luxury amenities such as a gym, indoor swimming pool and theater.

Marshall spent $1.37 million on the property in 2010. A year later the Cubs traded him to the Cincinnati Reds, where he played until the end of his career in 2014. In 2020 he became a Cubs analyst for the Marquee Sports Network.
