Michael Jordan’s Highland Park Estate for Sale

February 29, 2012

You can now own the metro Chicago real estate in which the greatest basketball player of all time has resided.

Michael Jordan is selling his Highland Park mansion. The price tag? A cool $29 million.

But look at all you get: The 7.39-acre estate is situated at 2700 Point Lane in the posh suburb and includes a whopping 56,000 square feet of living space and the ultimate in privacy, security and amenities, according to Baird and Warner, the listing agency.

There are nine bedrooms, 15 full bathrooms and four half baths, a den, a study, a library and an office, five fireplaces with one outdoors, a full basement with a bathroom and a first-floor laundry room.

In addition to the main home, which was built in 1995 and extensively renovated in 2009, there is an attached three-bedroom guesthouse, an indoor-outdoor entertaining area and pool, a tennis court, a putting green and a deep-water pond.

In 2001, an attached indoor basketball complex with specially cushioned hardwood flooring, high intensity lighting and a separate entrance was added.

The estate’s three climate-controlled garages hold up to 15 vehicles, and the gated entry adorns 23, the number Jordan wore as he led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA Championship titles back in the ’90s.

And, hey, you’re not just getting Jordan’s house, you’re also getting his stuff: The place comes furnished.

So, is it worth it? Well, the main house offers 32,683 square feet. At that asking price, the dollar amount comes out to $887.31 per square foot. The latest tax bill was $165,224, which is higher than the average household income in the affluent North Shore suburb.

But, you’re going to own Michael Jordan’s house, a place where you could charge admission to enter.
