CHICAGO, March 27 (UPI) -- The Chicago home of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who is serving a 14-year prison sentence, has been taken off the market, a family spokesman said.

Glenn Selig said the "upheaval" of Blagojevich's March 15 departure for a federal prison in Colorado has made showing the house too stressful for wife Patti and the couple's two daughters, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.

The 3,800-square-foot Mediterranean-style home was originally put on the market for $1.07 million in October but the price was later dropped to 998,000.

The couple purchased the home in 1999. It has five bedrooms, four baths, three fireplaces, a library, a music room and a 2,200-foot gym in the basement.

The house received national exposure as the backdrop for Blagojevich's final news conference before he went to prison for his conviction on corruption charges.
