The basketball icon’s Highland Park, Illinois home was recently re-listed for $14.9 million (roughly half its original $29 million ask price). On the market since 2012, 2700 Point Lane has attracted some renewed interest following ESPN’s critically-acclaimed Michael Jordan documentary.
The 56,000 square foot property-equipped with every conceivable luxury amenity-is a physical monument to his tireless dedication and hard work. The custom designed property includes a regulation-sized basketball gymnasium, circular infinity pool, putting green, tennis court, and cigar room, each with Michael Jordan’s signature touch.
Set in a prestige suburb of Highland Park, the modern mansion is enclosed by more than 150 trees – the perfect setup for someone in need of complete privacy.
At the entrance of the private driveway is a grand entry gate bearing Michael Jordan’s famous Chicago Bulls shirt number 23. This level of personalisation is perhaps the reason why the property has failed to sell. The gate is a point for attention, and is very much Jordan’s home.
The home was completed in 1995 after Jordan bought its seven-acre lot in 1991, and is strategically hidden behind a wall of 40-foot evergreens.
The focal point of the home is a full basketball court, painted with the Jumpman logo. And outside, there’s a tennis court, a putting green, and an infinity pool with a grass island in the centre.
But despite the hefty price cut and several elaborate promotional videos, the basketball star is yet to find a buyer. Perhaps the effects of Covid-19 will spur someone to step into Jordan’s enormous shoes and snap up the property?
Listed for sale with Compass, a Compass marketing rep reportedly explained that the company has seen an increase in searches for homes offering abundant outdoor space and pools since the pandemic. With Jordan’s estate ticking both those boxes, they hope the property will get more interest this year.
