Jay Cutler’s Winnetka House Goes On the Market

 Jay Cutler at Trapp Lane house

OK, so it’s not exactly HIS house, though he could certainly afford it after signing his seven year contract with the Bears a couple of weeks ago.

But it IS the house that Cutler and his wife Kristin Cavallari have been renting for the past year. Now they are moving on and the house at 1334 Trapp Lane in Winnetka is for sale.

The brick and limestone house, which was built by HighGate in 2006, is set on almost three quarters of an acre on a quiet cul de sac just west of Hibbard Road. Given its thirteen rooms, six bedrooms and six full baths, size probably wasn’t the concern for the celebrity couple, who are expecting their second child this spring. It also has all the bells and whistles any self-respecting QB would want in a home. It even has a backyard big enough for throwing the football around. Whatever the reason they are leaving, the home can now be yours for only $4,499,000. Want to check it out? There will be an open house this Sunday from 11:30 to 1:30…allowing you plenty of time to house-hunt and still get to your Superbowl party.

The home is being marketed by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. The listing agent is Sonia Cohen. For more information about 1334 Trapp Lane, go here.

Fabulous North Shore Luxury Home on One Acre

North Shore Luxury Home

375 Old Farm Road, Northfield, IL

Coming soon! The Come Home North Shore team  is proud to announce the listing of this gorgeous twenty-two room home on one acre in Northfield.

We’ve seen a lot of high end new construction in our day, but this home is truly unique. It was custom built by the owner in 2010 to meticulous and exacting standards. Yes, it has everything you’d expect in a luxury home: state of the art appliances, custom cabinetry and high-end finishes. But it has so much more. Here are a few of the highlights:

  • There’s a Zen-like quality to the house. Once inside you feel a sense of calm and serenity.
  • The layout of the house is well thought out. The home is large but each space feels intimate.
  • Beautiful perennial gardens that bloom throughout the spring, summer and fall.
  • A guest suite with two bedrooms, bath and living room can also serve as a kids or teenager wing.
  • The lower level has a second full kitchen as well as a home theatre, billiard room, gym, fun kids’ playroom (where they can even write on the walls), paneled office, half bath and storage.
  • The dark oak floors have a high-friction matte finish for low slip and high endurance.
  • The seven-zone HVAC means everyone is comfy. And the whole house generator (17.5KW) means you never have to worry about power outages.
  • A three-season porch opens to a huge patio with outdoor kitchen and two grills, which makes for great summertime parties.
  •  This home is not likely to ever have flooding or seepage. Not only is it built on one of the highest lots in Northfield, but the owner also had the foundation dug out an extra three feet and filled with gravel for additional drainage.
  • And perhaps the most unusual feature of all: the floors and walls are insulated with recycled blue jeans, which provide excellent soundproofing!
