Michael Jordan House for Sale Highland Park, IL
Former Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan is used to getting his way. I mean honestly, who says no to Michael Jordan? But it seems as though Mr. Jordan has met his match. He has been trying to sell his custom built home in Chicago for a year now with no luck. In fact, he actually had to reduce the price of his home from $29 million down to $21 million which is a 28% drop in price. Since his divorce in 2008 Jordan has spent most of his time in Florida, and the home has remained mostly vacant.
The property was built in 1995 and was designed by Mr. Jordan himself on 8 acres of prime Chicago property. The selling points in this 56,000 square foot home (for living space alone) are ample. You can start wherever you like, the entry gate itself lets you know whose home you are about to enter with the iconic 23 designed into the iron, or you can shoot some hoops in an amazing indoor basketball court fit for any NBA MVP. The mansion includes 15 bathrooms, 9 bedrooms, and five full fireplaces, a fully furnished guest house, pool and spa, three garages, and a professional grade tennis court. The kitchen would be fit for any chef to work in with modern appliances and a sleek design. The backyard’s pool and patio area also fits the general modern Zen style that you see repeated over and over again throughout the home. Black leather furniture is part of the relaxation five star resort design of the home and is the archetype of high end.
Michael Jordan's mansion is just 30 miles outside of Chicago tucked in an expensive elite section of the suburb Highland Park. Even though the home was awarded to Jordan’s ex-wife Juanita the place still screams MJ and any potential buyer will see that as soon as drive up to the gate. But with Jordan dropping the price this month down by $8 million the home is priced to sell.
