The Chicago Tribune is reporting that basketball legend Michael Jordan has placed his 56,000 square foot mansion in Highland Park– an upscale suburb of Chicago– up for sale at a whopping $29 million.
According to the Tribune, Jordan’s sprawling estate is listed as the highest priced home in Chicago and boasts features such as nine bedrooms, 15 full baths, three-bedroom guesthouse, indoor-outdoor entertaining and pool area, tennis court, putting green and a 15-car garage.
For basketball lovers, Jordan’s Highland Park mansion also includes an indoor basketball complex featuring a full-size regulation court with specially cushioned hardwood flooring and competition-quality high intensity lighting. The front gates of the estate are also emblazoned with a telltale “23,” the jersey number MJ wore when he was part of the Chicago Bulls.
The IBTimes writes that the house was built during Jordan’s first hiatus from the hardwood, between 1993 and 1995, and that the “true” king of the court used to live there with his wife and three children, until his divorce in 2006.
According to public records, the property taxes on the home were $165,224 in 2010.
