When it comes to celebrities, we expect anything out of the ordinary; flashy doors, an insane number of bedrooms and bathrooms, a swimming pool suspended in the air, or anything else crazy you could imagine. With a net worth of $1.14 billion, we expect wonders when we explore Michael Jordan’s mansion.
What would your house look like if you had access to all those dollar bills? It may take some time before you think about this question. So take a look at Jordan’s home for some quality inspiration.

Michael Jordan’s Mansion (Chicago)
Jordan’s home might have been on the market for four years, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as mesmerizing as the attention of celebrities. We’ll explain why the star athlete’s home has been unsold since 2012, but first, let’s check it out, just in case you’re looking for a $15 million home.
Once you approach the entrance of the house, it would be impossible not to know that it belongs to the athlete. Anyone who knows Michael Jordan (everyone) knows that his Bulls jersey number is 23, so once you see that giant 23 ” embellished on his sleek door, you know you’re in Jordan.
Before you take a look, here’s what to expect when you walk through the door, the house presents itself; nine bedrooms, 15 full bathrooms, a basketball court, a card game room, a game room, a wine cellar, a home theater, a fitness room, a tennis court, lots greenery and beautiful landscaping.
Now that we have passed through the door, let us pass through the door of the Jordanian mansion. Her formal living room is quite attractive and elegant, there is a piano in the corner, where we have just a 100 bed grand piano on the fancy counter.
Once you walk into this home theater you get the feeling it belongs to a basketball fan, it might just be the neon print of him on the ceiling giving it away. It’s a classy place to relax and watch a few movies.
Forget your conventional black and dark wine cellar, enter through the basketball-shaped door of Michael Jordan’s wine cellar and take your pick of wine and perhaps, pair up with fine dining with fine wines.
Everything we’ve said about catering has us curious about where the actual “dinner” takes place. The athlete’s dining room includes a custom-made table for him. It is called the Baghdad table and it is not shocking that it represents a map of the city of Baghdad.
This is where all the cooking takes place. There’s nothing better than a wood-paneled kitchen with every conceivable appliance a chef would need to whip up anything from grilled cheese to filet mignon.
It is one of 9 bedrooms that are in the house and screams, “Simplicity is the new sophistication”.
Could this be Michael Jordan’s mansion without a custom basketball court? We strongly doubt it. The athlete has a full regulation basketball court located inside his home. We would love to win tickets to a game every day.

From what we’ve seen, the house is worth the $15 million that the athlete wants back, probably a bit more, but we’re pretty sure he didn’t expect this list to hang around for so long., with an initial listing price of $16 million. The house is every basketball lover’s dream. She attracted bids from all over the world. The entire building and the land it sits on are essentially collectibles.
So why is it still on the market? Two theories are floating around, first of all, everyone loves a mansion (much less Michael Jordan’s mansion), but it’s common knowledge that Jordan’s mansion is a bit too spacious and personalized.
As much as a man like Michael Jordan, he would rather go to his basketball court and see his name plastered on the floor. You could argue that if you have $15 million to spend on a mansion, you have the money to rip out a few floors, but the house is aggressively customized, so that would take a lot.
Also, while the house is located in the upscale part of Chicago’s Highland Park, it’s not located in a celebrity-populated area — Calabasas, for example. So, we always keep our fingers crossed for Michael, as it is a lovely mansion.
