After more than four years on the market and several price cuts, Michael Jordan’s mansion on the north side of Chicago is still looking for a buyer, reports MarketWatch staffer Amy Hoak.
The 56,000-square foot home is currently listed for $14,855,000, but was originally listed for $29 million in 2012. The house has nine bedrooms, 15 full bathrooms, a basketball court, card room, humidor, putting green, fitness studio, and tennis court. The front gates are adorned with a large “23,” reminding visitors they’re at the home of a living sports legend. His real-estate agent, Kofi Nartey, of The Agency in Beverly Hills, Calif., told Maxim magazine that the buyer could receive a pair of every edition of Air Jordan sneakers — in his or her size.
The home’s massive size and personalized features are likely what’s making it difficult to find the right buyer. And while it is located in one of Chicago’s higher-end suburbs, Highland Park, it’s not situated in a place where celebrities are commonly looking for homes — Beverly Hills, for example.
