Michael Jordan’s Home for Sale at $29 MILLION in Highland Park, Illinois

by billthemortgageguy

Last year, the property tax bill alone was $165,224. And this year’s sales price of Michael Jordan’s Highland Park mansion in Illinois? A potential record-setting $29 million.

Mind you, for that price you get not only the home’s pedigree, but the NBA champ’s nine bedrooms, 19 bathrooms and indoor basketball court, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

On top of a 32,683 sq.-ft. family house built in 1995 (where Michael and Juanita Jordan raised their three children while they were married), the property also includes a guest house, 500-bottle wine cellar and custom wood-trimmed cigar parlor.

“It’s such a beautiful house,” realtor Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner, which is representing the sale, tells the Sun-Times. “Every weekend people from all over the world came to see Michael’s house.”

A lot of people. About 1,500 to 2,000 cars drive by every weekend, says a neighbor, adding, “And everyone who came got out and took pictures in front of the gate.” (The gate features a giant “23,” for Jordan’s number.)

Just don’t worry about Jordan going homeless. The 49-year-old former Chicago Bulls star is reportedly building an 11-bedroom mansion on Florida’s Juniper Island in Palm Beach. That one’s only costing $20 million.
