article imageBasketball legend Michael Jordan's mansion in Chicago up for sale

By Leo Reyes     Mar 1, 2012 in Sports
Former Chicago Bulls basketball star and now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats Michael Jordan, has listed his fully furnished nine-bedroom house in suburban Highland Park for $29 million
Jordan's Highland Park property is reportedly the most expensive property in the area, Mail Online reported. The sprawling house has a living space of more than 56,000 square feet with 19 bathrooms and five fireplaces.
Aside from an indoor basketball court, the property boasts of topnotch facilities and amenities including a three-bedroom guesthouse, pool area, outdoor tennis court and three climate-controlled multi-car garages.
The entire complex sits on eight acres of land, and was reported to be Jordan's main home where he and former wife Juanita and their three children stayed.
Jordan is set to marry model Yvette Prieto, who he's been dating for over three years. It will be Jordan's second marriage after his divorce in 2006.
The Cuban-American model was reportedly dating Julio Iglesias, Jr., the son of popular singer Julio Iglesias, who popularized the song, "To all the girls I've loved before", before she got engaged with Jordan.
Jordan, who by acclamation is "the greatest basketball player of all time." is one of the most sought-after product endorsers in the sport.
Jordan's major endorsements include such brands as Nike, Coca-Cola, Chevrolet, Gatorade, McDonald's, Ball Park Franks, Rayovac, Wheaties, Hanes, and MCI.
"The target buyer is someone who would appreciate the privacy and luxury of the property, as well as its myriad and exceptional features and amenities," said listing broker Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner Real Estate.
Prospective buyer for the sprawling estate should be ready to spend at least $165,000 annually on estate or property taxes.
