Jordan Drops Price on Highland Park Estate by $8 Million

Jordan's Highland Park estate has been on the market since February 2012



     Michael Jordan doesn’t have too many ties to the City of Chicago anymore, but he is having trouble cutting loose from his most expensive one. On Monday, Yahoo! Sports reported that Jordan, who currently owns the Charlotte Bobcats and married longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto in April, has lowered the price on his Highland Park mansion – on the market since February 2012 – from $29 million to $21 million.

    In case you’re wondering at home, that’s 28 percent off the asking price. Not a bad deal, right?

    Built in the mid-90’s and renovated in 2009, this 56,000-square-foot marvel has nine bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and five fireplaces. It also features an indoor basketball court (of course), a weight room, three-bedroom guesthouse, pool, outdoor tennis court, and three climate-controlled multi-car garages.

    Nothing says living like having all of those amenities under one roof. Well, under several roofs on the same seven-acre lot.

    And for $21 million, that’s a steal. Who can say no to the palatial estate that the greatest basketball player of all time once called home?
