CHICAGO — Former Blackhawks player Dave Bolland, who was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs earlier this year, sold his Lincoln Park home for $1.95 million, more than its listing price.
Potential buyers had been clamoring for the three-story home, which was under contract within days after it was listed for $1.899 million in September, said Prudential Rubloff listing agent Doug Horwich.
Multiple cash offers meant Bolland could quickly sell the home, which has seven bedrooms and five full bathrooms plus a half, and for more than its asking price.
"That house did not last more than a couple a days," Horwich said. "We could have sold that house three or four times over."
The 6,100-square-foot home at 2625 N. Paulina St. is on a 30-foot-wide lot (considered an extra-wide lot) and has an elevator and a roof deck with skyline views, Horwich said.
Bolland, who's from Toronto, started playing for the Blackhawks during the 2006-2007 season. He was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs this summer but is on leave reportedly due to a tendon injury he suffered on Nov. 2.
