Michael Jordan has racked up plenty of accolades over his storied career in basketball, business, and beyond. In addition to his six titles, plethora of hoops records, and (barely) debatable GOAT status, he’s also the first NBA player to officially eclipse the billion-dollar threshold, with Forbes most recently valuing his net worth at a staggering $2.1 billion.
As a result, Michael Jordan has also accrued an impressive real estate record as the owner of multiple multi-million dollar residences. Let’s take a tour through His Airness’ stateside cribs.
In the Chicago suburbs, Michael Jordan owns a a 7.39 acre, 56,000 square foot property with an infinity pool, putting green (with Jordan Brand flag sticks), tennis court, multiple outdoor spaces, and, oh yeah, a 32,000 square foot home. The house features nine bedrooms, 19(!) bathrooms, and a giant “23” welded onto the gate of the driveway.
It also has a full-court basketball gym complete with a Jumpman logo at center court (surrounded by Jordan’s children names), a pond, multiple lounges and media rooms, a fully-stocked bar, and a modern, open-space design.
To the surprise of nobody, Jordan also installed a cigar room with customized card tables. The doors to the game room came from the original Playboy Mansion in Chicago.
However, this house — which was Jordan’s primary residence for years until 2007 — will end up resulting in a rare loss for Jordan. The mega-property has been on the market since 2012 and currently has a price tag worth $14.9 million — nearly 30 times the 2019 median home price in the Highland Park area. Jordan will undoubtedly take a major loss on the investment, if and when he does find a buyer.
According to Business Insider, Jordan may be struggling to offload the property due to the various personalized features. The Chicago Bulls icon custom-built the property for his specific taste, which, if his fashion choices are any indication, may be…an acquired one:
“It’s clearly his home,” realtor Bruce Bowers told Business Insider. “There’s a lot of work that would have to be done to make it your own.”
Originally, Jordan put his Highland Park property on sale for $29 million.
In addition to owning North Carolina’s only NBA team, the Charlotte Hornets, Michael Jordan also owns two lavish properties in his home state.
He owns a lakefront villa in Cornelius at Jetton Park on Lake Norman that he purchased for $2.8 million in 2013 (despite its initial $3.49 million listing). The home includes six bedrooms and is located on the Peninsula golf course — a luxury country club. The property is 22 miles from the Spectrum Center, where the Hornets play their home games. The home itself is 12,301 square feet, with exterior winding staircases, an outdoor pool, and a private dock with lake access.
MJ’s portfolio also includes a luxury condominium in downtown Charlotte on N. Tryon Street, walking distance from the Spectrum Center. In fact, the space makes up the entirety of the seventh floor Penthouse at the Trust Condos — equaling about 7,0000 square feet. The building is a refurbished modernist structure with elements of Japanese architecture. There’s a roof terrace with a glass canopy for private sunbathing, an outdoor kitchen, and 360 degree views of the city.
Park City, Utah
Michael Jordan is also the owner of a smaller property in the upscale ski town (and home of Sundance Film Festival) Park City. The 10,000 square foot home — which has been a private getaway for Mike — has been listed on the market since 2019, with a current price tag of $7.5 million.
The home has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, plus breathtaking views of the Wasatch Mountains. It’s features include winding staircases, high ceilings, an infinity pool, a full gym, private theater with stadium seating, cascading waterfalls, built-in fireplaces, and, of course, a golf room. Not bad for a humble abode.
These days, Michael Jordan spends most of his time at his $12.8 million mansion in Jupiter, Florida, which was completed in 2013 after 18 months of construction.
The space is a cool 26,299 square feet, with 18 separate roof lines to create a “home within a home” look. The architecture is modern, and the crib (possibly) includes 11 bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms, as well as a cigar room, a full-size basketball gym, a state-of-the-art media room, a guard hose, guest hose, and pool house.
The property is located in the heavily gated and guarded The Bears Club, an enclave known for high-profile residents, with a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. ESPN’s Wright Thompson’s recently described the neighborhood as “a swank gated community of trust fund loafers, military-industrial CEOs and hedge fund billionaires.”
The land purchase cost the hoops legend $4.8 million, with $7.6 million in construction costs. All in all, MJ liked spent over $20 million on the pad.
