Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Jed Hoyer and his wife, Merrill, sold their six-bedroom, 7,500-square-foot house in the Ravenswood neighborhood for $3.52 million.
Hoyer, 48, was the general manager of the Cubs from 2011 until 2020 — including the team’s World Series-winning title run in 2016 — and since 2020 has been president of baseball operations.
Built in 2006 and designed by the Morgante Wilson architectural firm, the house has 5½ bathrooms, an open floor plan, oversized windows, high ceilings, intricate moldings, a large kitchen with commercial-grade appliances, a newly redesigned primary bedroom suite with a walk-in closet, a second-floor lofted family room with 20-foot vaulted ceilings and a third-floor bedroom that can also be used as a den or a craft room.
The lower level contains a guest room, a large recreation room and a home theater and golf simulator. The mansion has a heated 1½- car attached garage and a heated 2½ car detached garage, and it also has a screened porch and an oversized sport court in the backyard. The house sits on a lot that measures 50 feet by 161 feet, which is a large size for the city.
“It’s a wonderful home and the new family will hopefully enjoy it as much as the previous owners have,” listing agent Jeffrey Lowe of Compass told Elite Street.
The Hoyers bought the mansion in July 2019 for $3.09 million. They first listed it in March for $3.65 million.
The mansion had a $37,007 property tax bill in the 2020 tax year.
Public records do not yet identify the buyers.
