Golfer Jeff Sluman Selling His Home in the Chicago Suburbs for $2.65M
Even longtime Windy City residents get tired of the frigid temps.
It’s part of the reason pro golfer Jeff Sluman is ready to part ways with his home in Hinsdale, IL, a western suburb of Chicago.
According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, Sluman’s wife, Linda Skoog-Sluman, says living in Florida “is much better for my husband’s golf game.”
But the couple is sad to say goodbye, as the Chicago area has been their home for years, and Skoog-Sluman was born and raised there.
The four-bedroom, 5.5-bath, custom-built property has lots to offer, including proximity to Hinsdale’s shops and parks.
And the abode’s $2,650,000 price tag makes it one of the town’s most expensive listings.
White oak floors, barn doors, and shiplap are just a few of the trendy details in the residence, which is a lovely mix of modern and traditional styles.
A bright sunroom, dining area surrounded by windows, and an open-plan layout offer abundant options for entertaining. The kitchen features custom cabinetry, two Sub-Zero fridges, a Wolf stove, and Miele dishwasher.
A fireplace graces the family room, which opens to a bluestone patio in the rear. A lofty ceiling and walk-in closet are part of the primary suite, along with a luxe bath and deep soaking tub. There’s more sleeping space on the third level, and the bottom floor offers plenty of room for wine storage and relaxing in front of the TV.
A gated entry and fully fenced lot provide maximum privacy. And out back, there’s a patio with a built-in fire pit and an outdoor kitchen.
Sluman had six wins on the PGA circuit, and today he golfs on the PGA Champions Tour. His major win came in 1998, when he captured the PGA Championship at Oak Tree Golf Club in Oklahoma.
