Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte deserved to treat himself to something nice for having to put up with quarterback Jay Cutler on a regular basis. Forte’s disdain for Mr. Cavallari (I may or may not be making that up) forced him to buy a house that’s roughly a 45 minute drive to Soldier Field. Of course, in Chicago’s traffic, that might means he’s only five miles away.
Forte’s new hut is slammed with upgrades (industry term). The listing actually doesn’t do it much justice.
A curving staircase leads to the spectacular marble-floored lower level presenting an expansive recreation/game room faced in stone and accented with a massive stone fireplace, a fully equipped bar, well-appointed media room, a generous fifth bedroom suite with stunning bath, and ample storage.
Forte paid $1.47 million 6,062-square-foot of house, with 5 bedrooms, 6 ½ baths and 4 fireplaces and the listing mentions “ample storage.” Check out the killer basement and tell if you would pimp it as “expansive” and “fully equipped.” Call it wicked awesome and move on.
