He’s one of basketball’s icons and now Michael Jordan could
be set to break a different kind of record.  The former NBA star has listed his Highland Park mansion for
a cool $29 million, the most expensive property listing in Chicago.

The property is set to fetch a record price for a property
in the area.  As the Chicago Tribune notes, the previous most
expensive sale was a $16 million Lake Bluff home in 2007.  Keep reading to learn more about
Jordan’s luxury home.

‘One of a kind’
property

Completed in 1995, the 56,000 square foot estate took two
years to build and, according to the listing, was designed ‘to Jordan’s
exacting specifications.’

The property boasts nine bedrooms and fifteen bathrooms
across three levels as well as a three bedroom guesthouse.  The complex also includes a pool area,
outdoor tennis court, three climate controlled multi-car garages and a putting
green.

Unsurprisingly, the property also includes a full size
regulation basketball court with ‘competition quality’ lighting and a sound
system.

Forbes reports
that ‘the gated entrance is emblazoned in a giant number 23, the jersey number
Jordan, famously wore during his first stretch with the Chicago Bulls before
retiring for the first time in 1993.’

Katherine Chez-Malkin of listing agents Baird & Warner
Real Estate said: “The property is being marketed to individuals with an
appreciation for its privacy, luxury and unique features.  The fact that this is Michael Jordan’s
home obviously makes it one-of-a-kind and very special.”

The 49 year old is in the process of building a new $12
million, 28,000 square foot estate in The Bear’s Club, a Jack Nicklaus designed
golf community in Jupiter, Florida. 
Malkin adds: “Michael has chosen to sell for a variety of personal
reasons.  He’s building a new house
in Florida and has decided it was time to downsize.”
