Former Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy and his wife, Stacey, in April paid the $2.9 million asking price to buy a six-bedroom, 7,014-square-foot house in Overland Park, Kan. from a former Kansas City Royals pitcher. And on Thursday, they sold their six-bedroom, 6,255-square-foot house in Lake Bluff for $4.45 million.
Nagy was fired by the Bears in January after completing a 6-11 season. He’s now the Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterbacks coach.
In Overland Park, Nagy and his wife bought the 15-room house from former Kansas City Royals pitcher Ian Kennedy, who now is a pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Kennedy played for the Royals from 2016 until 2020.
Built in 1999, the Overland Park house three fireplaces and sits on a 12.5-acre property that backs up to a working farm. The house had a $29,759 property tax bill in the 2020 tax year.
Meanwhile, in Lake Bluff, the Nagys paid $2.75 million in 2018 for the mansion that they now have sold. They upgraded it significantly, installing new bathrooms, a new laundry room and mud room with built-in lockers and an underground sport court bearing a Bears logo.
The Nagys placed the Lake Bluff house on the market in early March for $6.19 million and then cut their asking price to $5.95 million in May. They then reduced their asking price further, to $4.69 million in June.
Set on 2.06 acres with views of Lake Michigan, the mansion has a white kitchen with quartzite countertops and a large wood island, and a large family room with exposed wooden beams, custom window treatments and floor-to-ceiling windows. Other features include dual staircases, a first-floor guest bedroom suite, en-suite bedrooms with organized closets and built-in desks, and custom vanities, new custom lighting and heated flooring in all bathrooms. The primary bedroom suite has motorized window treatments, his and hers closets, a custom breakfast bar and views of Lake Michigan, while the lower level has a bar, a home theater and the sport court.
Outdoor features include a four-car heated garage, an outdoor fire pit, a patio with a built-in grill, a back porch swing, a recently expanded driveway and a sprinkler system, according to listing information.
Public records do not yet identify the buyer of the Nagys’ now-former Lake Bluff mansion. Listing agent Alissa McNicholas declined to comment on the sale.
The mansion had a $62,940 property tax bill in the 2020 tax year.
