Michael Jordan’s most historic property is his Chicago mansion, which pays tribute to his No. 23 jersey.

Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan ‘s homes are, perhaps, almost as impressive as his basketball achievements . The former NBA All-Star holds six NBA titles; countless records, including scoring 10 times throughout his 15-year career, as well as the honor of being the first NBA player to become a multimillionaire ( LeBron James followed in his footsteps since then). During his career and since his (final) retirement, Jordan has also invested much of his fortune in real estate, as he has acquired a handful of million-dollar mansions over the years. The professional athlete’s best-known residence is probably his custom-built home in Highland Park, Illinois, which carries his branding throughout the estate, including the number 23 on the front door and a Jumpman logo in the center of the massive court. indoor basketball house Jordan also owns residences in Utah, Florida and North Carolina, his home state. Below, we show you some of Michael Jordan ‘s best-known properties , each of them as unique and legendary as the athlete himself.

Chicago Penthouse

Michael Jordan married his first wife, Juanita Vanoy, in 1989, and a few years later they bought a penthouse together in Chicago for $3 million. The 8,000-square-foot home consisted of two floors, one on the 39th floor and the other on the 40th, and included four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms with views of Lake Michigan and the city skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. from floor to ceiling. The house had an open layout with a glass-enclosed sunroom that housed a living room and dining room, as well as a media room with a built-in humidifier ( Jordan is a well-known cigar aficionado). The penthouse also featured a 1,000-square-foot private rooftop terrace with a built-in grill, professional gardens, and multiple areas for entertaining. The couple divorced in 2006, and Vanoy ended up selling the property for $3.2 million in 2014.

Custom Mansion in Illinois

Also in 1991, at the height of his basketball career , Jordan purchased a nearly 7-acre piece of land in Highland Park (Illinois) for an undisclosed amount. There he planned to build a mansion customized to his particular taste and aesthetic. Four years later, construction of his 5,200-square-meter residence, which includes a tennis court, infinity pool, putting green and artificial pond, was complete. The contemporary-style house is located at the end of a long private road protected by a security fence with the famous number 23 visible to all visitors. Inside, amenities include a massive indoor basketball court , a smoking room, a home theater and a game room with doors from Chicago’s original Playboy Mansion. Michael Jordan lived there for many years before putting it up for sale for $29 million in 2012. However, the star athlete has not found a buyer for the property after more than a decade on the market and after multiple price drops. prices. (In 2020, following the release of The Last Dance, a documentary about Jordan ‘s career , the house was put up for sale again for a substantially lower price, $14.9 million.) Real estate agents speculate it’s due to the highly personalized nature of the property, although time will tell if one ardent Jordan fan is just biding his time for another price reduction before making his move.

Utah Vacation Home

Michael Jordan ‘s penchant for new construction extended to his next real estate purchase. The NBA legend paid an undisclosed amount for a huge vacation home in Park City, Utah. The stone and wood mansion measures 890 square meters and has a total of five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The grandeur begins at the entrance, with a museum-like stone walkway leading to a double-height glass door. The interiors are no less impressive, with high-quality finishes such as Italian marble, bamboo floors, granite countertops and Swiss pear wood. The master suite even has a private balcony with views of the Wasatch Mountains and Glenwild Golf Club. Jordan finally listed the luxurious getaway for $7.5 million in 2019, but it doesn’t look like he’s found the right buyer yet.

Condos in Charlotte, North Carolina

Several years after officially retiring from the NBA, the professional athlete returned to his home state of North Carolina. The same year he officially became the majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats (now the Hornets), he paid $3.15 million for two condos on the top floor of a building in downtown Charlotte, combining them into one oversized unit . The residence measures 650 square meters; Jordan had a private elevator installed to maximize privacy. Michael Jordan is apparently still the owner, although with his decision to sell the majority of the team’s shares in 2023, he may also want to divest himself of ownership soon.

Jordan ‘s next real estate move took him to Jupiter, Florida, where he purchased a $4.8 million mansion situated on 3 acres of Jack Nicklaus’ exclusive Bear’s Club community. His house, which began construction in 2010, measures 2,600 square meters, has 11 bedrooms, a media room with a state-of-the-art ventilation system to eliminate cigar smoke, a pool house, a two-seater guardhouse plants and a sports facility with a basketball court . Apparently, Michael Jordan spent another $7.6 million renovating the house to suit his needs. It is the residence in which he and his wife Yvette Prieto currently reside with their twin daughters, Victoria and Ysabel. Among his neighbors are famous figures such as Tiger Woods and Kid Rock.

Lake House in North Carolina

A year later, Jordan added a lakefront home in Cornelius, North Carolina, to the mix. She paid $2.8 million for the residence after it was foreclosed on, and the AP reported that the house had previously belonged to drag racer Doug Herbert. Located about 35 miles north of Charlotte, where she already had a penthouse , Jordan ‘s new property offered a different draw: unobstructed views of Lake Norman on three sides of the house. Images of the mansion show a grand foyer with floor-to-ceiling windows, a dramatic staircase leading to the second floor, and a private dock at the rear. Apparently, Michael Jordan still owns this house.
