In 2006, Conn bought the four-story, 5,500-square-foot brick and limestone house from its builder for $2.48 million.
Features include a second-floor master suite with a spa bath and a private deck, a third-floor loft or office, a lower level with a rec room and a theater, and an attached and heated two-car garage.
Conn did not respond to requests for comment, and his listing agent, Millie Rosenbloom of Baird & Warner, declined to comment.
Chuck Swirsky sells Wheaton house
Chicago Bulls radio play-by-play announcer Chuck Swirsky in August sold his five-bedroom, 3,398-square-foot house in Wheaton for $700,000.
Swirsky, 59, broadcasts for WMVP-AM.
The house, built in 1996, has four baths, an open two-story foyer, a dual staircase, a family room with a built-in entertainment center, a first-floor den with a bath, a full finished basement with a second kitchen, and a new kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances.
"They're just downsizing," said listing agent Paula Schatz of Realty Executives Premiere. "The house was as pristine as can be, and in a lovely location. We got multiple offers."
The house had been listed for $705,000. Swirsky bought it in 2008 for $730,000.
Luol Deng sells Northbrook town home for $474K
Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng this month sold his three-bedroom town home in a gated community in Northbrook for $474,000.
Deng, 28, a native of Sudan who left Duke University after one year to enter the NBA draft in 2004, has played his entire career with the Bulls.
In 2004, Deng paid $672,000 for the 2,511-square-foot town home in a neighborhood popular with Bulls players.
Deng first listed the house in 2010 for $639,000 for six months, relisted it for $535,000, then cut his asking price in May to $499,000. Constantine Grapsas, the listing agent for Deng's town house, declined to comment.
The town home, built in 2000, has two full baths, two half-baths, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a large master suite with custom closets, and a lower level with a bathroom and abundant storage.
Deng owns a 7,014-square-foot single-family house in Northbrook, which he purchased in 2009 for $2.4 million.

Former Altria Chairman and CEO Michael Szymanczyk has listed his three-bedroom, 3,200-square-foot Gold Coast condo for $2.15 million. He and his wife bought the unit in 2003 for $1.93 million.
The 32nd-floor condo has unobstructed views from all rooms, 4 1/2 baths, a de Giulio kitchen, a large master suite with separate baths and closets, two en suite guest bedrooms, new baths by Waterworks and a wood-paneled study.
"It's a beautiful apartment that has been updated with a gorgeous kitchen," said listing agent Antje Kuiper of Koenig & Strey. "Not only is the unit stunning, but the views are unbelievable."
Szymanczyk, who retired from Altria last year, recently paid $4.5 million for a 5,175-square-foot condo in the Lincoln Park neighborhood from Nicholas Pritzker, chief executive and chairman of Hyatt Development Corp.
