Kenny Williams Buys $3.5 Million Gold Coast Home With Help From White Sox

(CBS) Kenny Williams is moving to the North Side.

Don’t worry, the White Sox GM isn’t taking a new job, but he will reside on the other side of town.

Williams, who is expected to be promoted to team president when the season ends, bought a $3.5 million house in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, according to Crain’s Chicago Business.

The GM currently lives in the South Loop, but bought the 6,300-square-foot Gold Coast home near Rush and Oak streets with a little help from the White Sox. According to the report, Chicago White Sox Ltd. provided him with a $2.15 million loan to finance the purchase.

The house was originally built in 1898, but the seller spent about $4 million gutting and renovating the home. It features a Christopher Peacock kitchen, onyx flooring, marble bathrooms and “smart house” automated systems, according to the report.

“You can turn your lights on from China if you want,” listing agent Meladee Hughes of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage to Crain’s.
