New Chicago Cubs outfielder David DeJesus wasted no time purchasing a home in Chicago after signing a two-year deal with the team in November.

The 31-year-old recently purchased a 6,000-square-foot house in Wheaton, Illinois, for $1.05 million, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The source reported that the home is all brick and has 15 rooms, including five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, five fireplaces and a luxury master suite that is newly renovated. The house is also close to DeJesus' family, meaning he could have a lot of help unpacking moving boxes - and caring for his young son.

"We have an 18-month-old son, and my wife grew up in Wheaton," DeJesus told Elite Street in an interview. "So all my in-laws are 10 minutes away from our house. It makes life a lot easier having grandparents around."

The mansion was built in 1992 and had first been listed at $1.55 million, but was later reduced to $1.28 million, according to the Tribune.

DeJesus signed a two-year, $10 million deal with an option for 2014. Before packing up and signing on with the Cubs, the outfielder played in Oakland with the As and with the Kansas City Royals.
