Last week, we stopped by the Hall-of-Fame home of the “Wizard of Oz”.  This week, we head to Chicago to hang out with White Sox closer David Robertson.

I hated to see David Robertson go.  A class act all the way, the 2011 All-star for the New York Yankees took on the seemingly impossible task a few years later when he took over the reigns from the most legendary closer of All-time, Mariano Rivera.  As expected, Robertson excelled and after the 2014 season, he signed a lucrative contract to become the closer for the Chicago White Sox.

After living in New York for several years, choosing the right neighborhood was key for David and his wife Erin when they moved to Chi-town.  They wanted to find something on a corner in a great neighborhood that let in a little more light and had more space for their son Luke to play.  With the high-ceilings and gorgeous wood floors, they found the perfect place to call home.  David and Erin knew that this home would give their young family the room they need to grow.

While the playroom for the little guy is stockpiled, I’m pretty sure the adults have the most fun with my favorite feature of the home.

Since the Robertson’s were renovating the entire house – including the roof – anyway, they decided to utilize the space they had to the max and added a roof-top deck!  A large, open space in the city to entertain friends and family is not something you see everyday.  That’s city living 101.

And by the way, guess who David Robertson turned to for help in finding this fantastic place to call home? Coldwell Banker of course and agent, Nadine Ferrata with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Chicago, IL.
