Apparently no one told basketball legend and ardent wearer of Hanes Michael Jordan that home prices have dropped to a level not seen since 2006, because he’s trying unload his super-fancy suburban Chicago living quarters for a hefty $29 million. Good luck with that one!
Bloomberg News says the Chicago Bulls great has been living in some pretty sweet digs in Highland Park, which might warrant the mind-boggling price tag. With 56,000 square feet, nine bedrooms, 15 baths, five fireplaces and of course, an indoor basketball complex with specially cushioned hardwood flooring, Mike’s not about to let this baby go for cheap.
But wait, of course there’s more on the property: A three-bedroom guesthouse, indoor/outdoor entertaining and pool area, outdoor tennis court, putting green, deep-water pond and three climate-controlled multicar garages. That’s how the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats lives! And did we mention he played basketball?
Again, we salute anyone with enough cash and a likely affinity for the number 23 to pick this gem up. And maybe the new owners will actually come to the door for trick-or-treating when a 7-year-old superfan comes knocking. Not that anyone is bitter. Nope.
