Orioles-Blue Jays games in Toronto no longer your typical slugfests

Former Bulls star lists Northbrook home

Special to the Tribune

Former Chicago Bulls guard Ben Gordon, whom the Orlando Magic recently signed to a two-year deal, has listed his three-bedroom town home in a gated community in Northbrook for $475,000.

The Bulls’ first-round draft pick in 2004, the British-born Gordon, 31, played for the team for five seasons before leaving in 2009 to join the Detroit Pistons as a free agent.  He signed with Orlando on July 11.

Gordon is set to take a major loss on the 2,400-square-foot town home, which is in the gated Royal Ridge community that for many years was popular with Chicago Bulls.  He paid $660,000 for it in 2004, and first had tried listing it in 2010 for $800,000.  He later had it on the market in 2011 for $610,000, $585,000 and $475,000 before taking it off the market later that year.

Now, with a tenant set to vacate the town home at the end of August, Gordon listed the unit on July 12 for $475,000.

Built in 2000, the two-story town home has 2-1/2 baths, two walk-in closets in the second-floor master bedroom and a two-car attached garage.

 “He liked it because it’s maintenance-free and close to the (Bulls’ training facility) Berto Center,” said listing agent Lynn Romanek-Holstein of Romanek Residential Properties.  “There’s nothing else like it on the North Shore if you want a gated development with a 24-hour guard.”

Other former Bulls who have owned in Royal Ridge include Luol Deng, Andres Nocioni and Thabo Sefolosha.
