Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka has successfully offloaded his Windy City abode.
“Iron Mike,” 84, and his wife, Diana, listed their longtime condo in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood last month for $599,000, the Chicago Tribune previously reported.
Just 10 days later, the publication broke the news that the Bears’ six-time All-Pro tight end had entered contract for the deal, having found a buyer and sold the corner unit for $575,000, just $24,000 under the initial ask.
“Mike Ditka IS Chicago,” @properties agent Emily Sachs Wong, who held the listing, told The Post. “This apartment embodied the classic feel of our city with beautiful wood detailing and unbeatable views of the Magnificent Mile. He left a great legacy for the next homeowners.”
Wong added to the Tribune that the Ditkas decided to part with the apartment because they no longer live in the city, and the outlet confirmed the pair now live in a 4,200-plus-square-foot residence they constructed in Naples, Florida back in 2002.
In addition to his football fame (which includes bringing the Bears their only Super Bowl win back in 1986), Ditka is also known for a series of eponymous steakhouses that started on the city’s Magnificent Mile in 1997.
Located on the 39th floor of the high-rise Olympia Centre building, the 1,904-square-foot unit features two bedrooms, two bathrooms and “a dazzling vantage point of the Windy City and the picturesque Lake Michigan,” according to the listing.
There is a grand foyer, an open living and dining room layout, a granite-countered kitchen and, in the primary suite, two walk-in closets and an ensuite bath with dual vanities.
There are hardwood floors throughout, and the new owner — whose identity has not yet been revealed by public records — also gets access to the building’s shared amenities, which include an indoor pool, two exercise rooms, saunas, door staff, dry cleaning services, a party room with a full kitchen, a car wash and bicycle storage.
