Michael Jordan's Highland Park, IL Mega Mansion Goes Up For Auction

It's all in the title, the over the top 56,000 square foot mansion owned by basketball legend Michael Jordan is going up for auction. The Highland Park, Illinois estate has been for sale for a number of years, once listed at an astounding $29,000,000. After numerous price cuts and still no takers, the listing agency apparently thought putting the mansion up for auction was the next step.

There is nothing wrong with the house itself, that's for sure. The Illinois mega compound was built in 1995 and boasts over 7 acres of land, 9 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, an indoor pool, a 3-bedroom guesthouse, a tennis court, putting green, 3 climate-controlled garages (each with a capacity of 12 cars), and not surprisingly, a private indoor basketball complex that features a regulation sized basketball court, specially cushioned hardwood flooring, competition-quality high intensity lighting and a professional sound system.

Here is a near 9-minute video showing a tour of the 56,000 square foot residence and offering a first hand look at some of the amenities included. For prospective buyers, the auction will be held on November 22. For more information, click the link below for the auctioneer's website.
