CHICAGO — The Lincoln Park home of longtime WLS talk radio host Roe Conn sold for $2.58 million last week, according to Chicago Magazine.

The three-story, 5,500-square-foot detached home includes five bedrooms and three bathrooms, according to Redfin.com. The home, in the 2000 block of N. Magnolia St., features a limestone facade and a window overlooking a neighbor's landscaped yard with "lush greenery adding privacy [and] light."

A first-floor gourmet kitchen, a second-floor master suite with a spa, and a third-floor loft/office comes with a home theater, five outdoor spaces, three fireplaces and a heated garage, according to the listing.

The home was sold on Jan. 23, but the buyer is not identified in public records. The home was bought by the Conn family in 2006 for about $2.5 million — it was relisted by Conn and his wife Barbara in September 2013, according to the listing.

Conn, 49, debuted on WLS in 1989, gaining recognition for his coverage of the O.J. Simpson trial. Conn has since hosted shows such as The Roe and Garry Show, The Roe Report and the Roe Conn Show with Sun-Times columnist Richard Roeper.

Listing agent Millie Rosenbloom declined to comment on the sale.
