Lincoln Park home once owned by radio host Eric Ferguson sells for $2.2 million

Chicago Tribune

A six-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot brick and limestone mansion in the Lincoln Park area that WTMX-FM morning radio host Eric Ferguson owned from 2004 until 2012 sold Sept. 15 for $2.225 million.

The sellers were finance scholar and former University of Chicago finance professor Toby Moskowitz, who last year joined the faculty of Yale University’s School of Management, and his wife, Bonnie.

The couple took a sizable loss on the mansion, which they purchased for $2.63 million in 2012 from Ferguson, who now lives in Hinsdale.

The Moskowitzes initially had sought $2.795 million for the mansion when they listed it in June 2016. They later cut their asking price to $2.645 million, $2.595 million and finally to $2.395 million.

Built in 2004, the custom-built house in the West DePaul neighborhood of the Lincoln Park community area has sun-filled living and dining rooms, an eat-in kitchen with a butler’s pantry, state-of-the-art appliances, a great room, a master suite with a sitting room, a third level with a rec space, a lower level with a custom bar/wine cellar and a theater room, and a roof deck atop the garage.

“The house is amazing, (with) a great layout, an oversized yard and an attached garage,” said listing agent Joanne Nemerovski of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff.

Toby Moskowitz did not respond to a request for comment.
