WBBM-Ch. 2 weekday news anchor Rob Johnson has sold his six-bedroom house in Hinsdale for $1.08 million.
The co-anchor of Channel 2's 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts, Johnson, 45, had owned the 3,440-square-foot brick-and-stone home since buying it through a bank trust in 2004 for $1.17 million.
Built in 2003, the house has 51/2 baths, hardwood floors, crown and cove moldings, three fireplaces and a wine cellar. The house also has four finished levels, a first-floor den and a professionally landscaped yard.
Johnson first listed the home in August for $1.25 million. He then cut his asking price to $1.19 million in September and closed on the sale in late November.
Johnson declined to comment on the sale or where he has moved.
Linda Feinstein of ERA Team Feinstein was the listing agent.
CBS2's Le Mignot buys Northwest Side home
WBBM-Ch. 2 general assignment reporter Suzanne Le Mignot paid $420,000 for a four-bedroom house on Chicago's Northwest Side.
Le Mignot, 43, has been full time with CBS-2 since 1999 and worked for WBBM-AM radio before that.
Built in 1896, Le Mignot's 11-room house is a gut rehab with three baths, hardwood floors throughout, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a new, two-car garage.
Le Mignot's professional agent, Eliot Ephraim, declined to comment on the purchase. It came after Le Mignot sold a three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot town house on the Near North Side for $990,000.
Lake Bluff mansion sells for $5.25M
A 10,079-square-foot mansion on more than 10 acres in Lake Bluff sold recently for $5.25 million.
Built in 1930, the eight-bedroom brick, Mediterranean villa-style mansion was designed by architect Russell Walcott and has nine baths and a clay tile roof. The property includes a tennis court, a guesthouse, a putting green, an in-ground pool that is 60 feet by 25 feet, and no fewer than three garages.
"The house was very grand, and very gracious," said listing agent Jean Royster of Coldwell Banker. "You feel like you're stepping back in time. It retained all the grandeur that you expect in an estate. And the sellers priced it very well — they learned from looking at what had not sold, so they priced it appropriately and therefore got close to asking price."
The mansion first was listed in late September for $5.55 million.
The buyer is a Loop financial executive.
