Now is your chance to be like Mike and own one of the shining gems of Chicago real estate. On Dec. 16, Michael Jordan’s palatial estate in the Highland Park area, about a half hour away from Chicago proper, will be put up for auction by Concierge Auctions. Designed, built and lived in by the legendary Chicago Bulls star for 19 years, the home has all the luxurious touches you could imagine – and some you can’t – in a fantastic 56,000-square foot home.

This Chicago real estate gem is built perfectly for any superstar athlete, or anyone with a love for basketball and a huge wallet. From the outer gates that are emblazoned with the famous number “23” that all Chicago sports fans know and love, to the regulation-sized private indoor basketball court, there’s no mistaking whose passion this home was. Located on 7.39 acres of land, the home has nine bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, five fireplaces and much more. The regulation-sized indoor basketball court is accompanied by a locker room and a glass observation overlook. The kitchen is set for a culinary enthusiast or a private chef, with lots of space, two dishwashers, double convection ovens and a combination steam oven. A large skylight over the kitchen table exemplifies the home’s love of natural light, and floor-to-ceiling windows and disappearing walls make for a home with an indoor-outdoor harmony that is unparalleled.

The home also enjoys lots of hangout spaces, like a card room, a cigar room with a custom-built walk-in humidor, a wine room, and a private library and billiards room with doors from the original Playboy Mansion.  There is a guest house, which is connected to the main home, and has a separate entry. The marvels aren’t limited to the indoors, either, as there is a sprawling patio that can be accessed from six different areas of the home, a one-of-a-kind infinity-edge pool with center private island, a full tennis court, pond, and a PGA-grade putting green all surrounded by a living wall of over 150 trees designed to give you the most in privacy.

If you know and love Jordan, you’ll also be excited to know that all furnishings stay with the home when it goes up for auction on December 16th. If you are ready to sign up to bid on this home that was previously listed for $29 million, you can register your bids up to three days in advance with Chicago real estate representative, Katherine Chez-Malkin of Baird & Warner Real Estate.

[Update] The Auction has been postponed to December 16.
