Former Bears coach Matt Nagy cuts Lake Bluff home price below $6 million

LAKE BLUFF, IL — The Lake Bluff mansion owned by former Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy went public on Monday for just under $6 million.

Although the property’s latest asking price is a quarter of a million dollars lower than an earlier price that appeared on the private ad network, it is still more than double what Nagy and his wife, Stacey, paid Four years ago.

The property was briefly offered for public sale in March with a price tag of $6.19 million before its listing agent removed it from its website.

This list included pictures from the playsheet clad wall to the finished lower level of the home, a decorative choice that attracted media Warning when the unconventional wallpaper appeared behind Nagy in the 2020 NFL Draft conducted remotely.

But in the images accompanying the new listing, most of the artwork and wall displays around the house, including jerseys and bear-related iconography on the lower level, have been digitally blurred.

Likewise, the Chicago Bears logo and the giant orange “N” that featured prominently on the home’s indoor sports court are no longer visible, having apparently been repainted.

The six-bedroom home was built in 2017 on a 2.06-acre portion of what once comprised the estate of Harry Clow (1869-1933), also known as Landsdowne.

Clow, the chairman of publishing company Rand McNally & Co., commissioned architectural firm Marshall & Fox and landscape architect Jens Jenson to build his mansion, which was built in 1911 and included an open-air theater air and a shed.

The 22-acre property remained in the Clow family until it was sold and subdivided in 1985, according to the Lake Bluff History Museum.

The 5-year-old Landsdowne Lane house features an original bridge from the Landsdowne estate, according to the listing.

Nagy’s predecessor in the role, John Fox, suffered a $400,000 loss when he sold the Lake Forest home he had owned for four years in April 2019.

The home’s estimated market value, according to the Lake County Chief Assessor’s Office, is $2.9 million and its annual property tax bill is about $63,000.
