Former Chicago Bulls guard Jannero Pargo and his wife, "Basketball Wives LA" reality show star Malaysia Pargo, have placed their seven-bedroom, 11,887-square-foot mansion in Riverwoods on the market for $2.4 million.
A Chicago native who attended Paul Robeson High School in Englewood, Pargo, 33, twice played for the Bulls — from 2003 until 2006 and from 2009 until 2010. Currently a free agent, he played earlier this season for the Atlanta Hawks.
Pargo paid $2.25 million in 2009 for the then-new, quasi-French chateau-style mansion. Located on 2.78 acres with wooded views and a pond, the mansion has 8 1/2 baths, an open floor plan, millwork, a kitchen with designer cabinets and Thermador professional appliances, a slate roof and a lower level with a media room and a spalike steam shower.
Pargo's listing agent, Benjamin Fisher of Prudential Rubloff, declined to comment on the listing.
Ch. 32's Placko lists house
WFLD-Ch. 32 reporter Dane Placko last month listed his three-bedroom, Victorian-style house on the Northwest Side for $459,000.
Located on a double lot, the vintage house is in the Old Irving neighborhood. Features include a turret, a double-door entry to an open oak staircase, oak floors and trim, a full dining room with a bay window, a kitchen with a breakfast room that opens to a rear deck, a Juliet balcony off the master bedroom and a full, high, unfinished English basement with tall windows.
Placko, 52, bought the house in 1994 for $231,000.
"It was a great house, but we just decided it was time to move on," Placko told Elite Street. "I love living in the Old Irving neighborhood and had been there for more than 18 years and have many great friends and great memories. I still plan to spend a great deal of my time in that part of Chicago."
Peggy Brockhaus of Coldwell Banker has the listing.
