Michael Jordan’s Chicago area mansion home is a truly enormous compound that has every bell and whistle you can think of. There’s a pool with a grass island in the middle of it, a door from the Playboy Mansion, a table based on the streets of Baghdad, and MJ-branded golf flags on a personal golf course. Jordan married his longtime girlfriend and purchased another house in North Carolina.
Michael Jordan is arguably the greatest basketball player to ever walk the Earth. The Hall of Famer won six NBA titles over the course of his career and was names to fourteen All-Star games. While his name will always be linked to the city, his Chicago mansion is now on the market. It is the dream home for any sports fan.
The property is located on over seven acres approximately twenty-five miles North of Chicago in Highland Park, IL. It is set back from the road and surrounded but evergreen trees to provide the utmost privacy. This mansion is over 28,000 square feet and features 19 bathrooms and 9 bedrooms. Built in 1995 this celebrity home has all of the amenities you would expect. This includes a cigar room, a wine cellar, and a garage large enough to fit fourteen cars.
One of best features of Michael Jordan’s house is the full size indoor basketball court. The court is regulation sized with a professional level floor and lighting. This truly impressive feature is fit for one of the games’s all time greats, and cannot be found in any other home. When the court and the home’s finished lower level are included in the total size of the home it grows to over a massive 56,000 square feet.
The home continues its sporty theme outside. Jordan, always the avid golfer, had a full putting green and chipping range. There are also tennis courts as well as a lily pond and a flagstone patio. Jordan’s famous number 23 is proudly displayed on the front entrance gate.
This property was initially placed on the market in 2012 with an asking price of $29 million. The price was reduced to $21 million in January of 2013, and finally lowered to $16,000,000 at the end of 2013. It is still available for a qualified buyer looking to own not only a luxury home, but a piece of basketball history.
