Dwyane Wade, the NBA All-Star who's returning to his hometown of Chicago to play basketball for the Bulls, is renting a Gold Coast mansion that was featured in the 1980s TV sitcom "Webster," Crain's Chicago Business reports.

The 9,000-square-foot main house, which was on the market this year for $9.5 million, has seven bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and 10-foot ceilings. Built in 1883, the Queen Anne -- style mansion received the 2015 Gold Coast House Beautiful Award.

The home features a front entry with beveled-glass windows and hardwood floors, and a white kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and marble counters. An attached coach house serves as a 1,250-square-foot apartment.

The 12-time All-Star, one of the National Basketball Association's most popular players, signed with the Bulls in July after a 13-year stint with the Miami Heat, with whom he won three NBA championships. Off the court, he married actress Gabrielle Union in August 2014.

The guard grew up on the city's South Side and has reportedly owned other homes in Chicago. They include a townhouse he bought in 2009 for $1.4 million and sold in 2014 for $1.7 million, and a seven-bedroom house that went to his ex-wife in a 2007 divorce and sold recently for $300,000, a quarter of its original $1.2 million asking price.
