Newsline: Former US ambassador to Afghanistan buys $1.1 million house

Former U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Karl Eikenberry and his wife, Ching, on Feb. 1 paid $1.115 million for a four-bedroom, 4,560-square-foot house in Winnetka. A faculty member at Stanford University, Eikenberry, 64, in September will become the executive director of Northwestern University’s newly created Buffett Institute for Global Studies. In Winnetka, the Cape Cod-style house that Eikenberry bought was listed a year ago for $1.385 million and later was reduced to $1.295 million, $1.195 million and $1.149 million before selling. Built in 1990, the house has four full baths, two half baths, two fireplaces, custom millwork, an elevator and an indoor pool on the lower level. In an email, Eikenberry declined to comment on the purchase.
