Actor Daniel J. Travanti put his six-bedroom, 6,744-square-foot mansion in Lake Forest on the market Tuesday for $1.49 million.
A Kenosha native who has now apparently retired from acting, the 82-year-old Travanti starred in the TV police drama “Hill Street Blues” from 1981 to 1987.
Built in 1987, the home has five and a half bathrooms, a fireplace, a sunroom, high ceilings with skylights, a basement with a rec room, a butler’s pantry, and a kitchen with a double oven, an island, and undermount lighting. . Travanti paid $840,000 for the house in 1995.
The home sits on a 1.84-acre property that also contains an in-ground pool, pavilion, and artist’s booth.
Listing agent Brad Magnant did not respond to a request for comment.
The property had a property tax bill of $26,592 in fiscal year 2021.
The photos in the listing show that Travanti has already moved out of the house. Travanti is the latest in a series of Lake Forest property listings that are linked to national figures. Astronaut James Lovell in July, he put his old Lake Forest home on the market for $2.99 million. And in March, the Nancy Hughes Estatewho was the widow of filmmaker and former Lake Forest resident John Hughes, put her five-bedroom, 12,562-square-foot mansion on 5.23 acres on Lake Michigan on the market for $15 million.
Both the Lovell and Hughes listings were on real estate agents’ private listing network, though the Hughes family put their mansion on the public market Wednesday for the same $15 million asking price.
