Former Chicago Bulls Mansion Could Use An Assist

Ben Wallace had a short and awful stint as a Bull in Chicago.  Nobody seemed to be happy during his tenure here and apparently his departure to Cleveland and eventually back to Detroit had gone much smoother than the sale of his Lake Forest mansion.

Wallace’s 6,983-square-foot, traditional-style mansion on 1.74 gated acres reportedly dropped the asking price to $2.49 million from $2.99 million.  Wallace purchased the home in 2007 for $3 million and by the time the home closes looks to lose more than $500k in a deal.  Not to mention that the real estate tax bill for this home is $37,968 per year!

Built in 2005, Wallace’s stone and slate Lake Forest mansion has five full baths, three partial baths, a cherry library, eight fireplaces, a custom staircase, a gourmet kitchen with a butler’s pantry, a four-car heated garage and a lower level with a rec room, wine cellar, billiard room and bar.
