Inside Michael Jordan’s Chicago-Area Mansion

By Jay Casteel   /   Published 10/21/13

More than a year after putting his Chicago-area mansion on the market for $29 million, Michael Jordan is putting his property up for auction, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The 7.39-acre property is located in Highland Park, a suburb 30 minutes north of Chicago. It boasts nine bedrooms and 19 bathrooms, as well as a three-bedroom guest wing, an outdoor tennis court, pool pavilion and entertaining area, a deep water pond, putting green and three climate-controlled multi-car garages. In 2001, he added a full-size, regulation basketball court, as well as locker rooms and showers, a lounge with leather chairs, a built-in television and a glass observation overlook.

He lived in the home for nearly 20 years. He's now selling it, because "my kids are grown now and I don't need a large house in Chicago." As owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, Jordan splits his time between the team's base in North Carolina and a new home he built in Jupiter, Fla.

New York-based Concierge Auctions will hold a live auction on Nov. 22. A $250,000 deposit is required to bid.

    Recently I was really, really low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I've been far more able to pay my bills!! I'm so glad, I did this! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. - W1o0
