The popular just-married couple, Kristin Cavallari, popular reality TV starlet and Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears quarterback recently rented a stately European-style mansion for $10,000 a month. The luxury home is set on nearly 0.75 acres in a sought-after Winnekta neighborhood, a Chicago suburb not far from Cutler’s job.
Cutler preferred to rent rather than purchase their new abode since he is nearing the end of his contract with the Bears. Before his marriage to Kristin he was paying $6,500 a month for a 2,050-square-foot condo on Chicago’s Near North Side. It is not known for sure where K. Cavallari used to live before moving to Winnekta.
An elegant circular driveway winds up to the front door of the mansion opening into a majestic double height entry hall with inlaid marble flooring and a floating staircase. The 8,200-square-foot mansion includes 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 3 half bathrooms, an exclusive chef’s kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, a huge center work island with snack bar, cutting edge appliances and a breakfast area with fireplace surmounted by a flat screen television. The kitchen was recently featured in an issue of “People Magazine,” with Kristin posing in it. Listing details also include formal living with fireplace and hardwood flooring, a wood paneled library and finished basement. The stunning rental also features a family room for entertainment with fireplace. One has to make real big money to afford such a rent, doesn’t one?
