MJ's House for Sale
In this recessionary market, $29 million seems like a lot for a house, even in the exclusive Chicago suburb of Highland Park, but this 56,000 square foot mansion does have a lot of unique features.
Not only does the house, currently owned by Michael Jordan, have nine bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and a really, really nice kitchen, it also has a regulation sized indoor basketball court with "specially cushioned hardwood flooring" and "competition-quality high-intensity lighting" and a gate with a large "23" in the middle of it. (That must have really annoyed Jordan during that period where he was wearing number 45.)
Anyway, I'm told that the owner is really busy watching the walls cave in around him in Charlotte right now, so he could probably be convinced to come down off the $29 million a little bit. If you're interested in putting in a bid, or want to know more, contact Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner.
