Ever wanted to buy a mansion owned by NBA legend Michael Jordan?
Well, if you have the cash, Jordan’s legendary Chicago mansion will be going up for auction in November by Concierge Auctions and here is some specifics about the mansion from the Wall Street Journal:
Michael Jordan is auctioning off his 56,000-square-foot compound in a Chicago suburb. He first put the home on the market in February 2012 for $29 million, but earlier this year lowered the price to $21 million.
The 7.39-acre property is in Highland Park, a suburb 30 minutes north of Chicago. The contemporary-style home has nine bedrooms and 19 bathrooms. According to the auction company, it also has a three-bedroom guest wing, an outdoor tennis court, pool pavilion and entertaining area, a deep water pond, putting green and three climate-controlled multicar garages.
For those of you asking why MJ would sell the place, here is the words from MJ’s mouth:
In an email, he said he is selling the home because “my kids are grown now and I don’t need a large house in Chicago.” The owner of basketball team the Charlotte Bobcats, Mr. Jordan said he splits his time between the team’s base in North Carolina and a new home he built in Jupiter, Fla. “It was time for some warmer weather down at my new home in Florida,” added Mr. Jordan, who said he also has a vacation home in Utah.
