Fascination with famous personalities saturates the perpetual news cycle. From movie stars to sports heroes, superstar chefs and designers and anyone in the public eye, we are captivated by their talents and lifestyles. Certainly part of the allure are the luxury homes owned by our favorite figures. The recent Fall/Winter 2012 issue of Grand Vie magazine explores several celebrity homes currently for sale through Luxury Portfolio International, the exclusive luxury property network of the Ebby Halliday Companies, including the home of basketball legend Michael Jordan.
Michael Jordan | Highland Park, IL
Elegance and utmost privacy abound at NBA legend Michael Jordan s perfectly situated, privately gated estate nestled on over seven acres. The secluded compound offers over 56,000 square feet on three levels, including nine bedrooms, 15 baths and five fireplaces.
Originally constructed between 1993 and 1995 in the wake of the Chicago Bulls first championship three-peat, the residence underwent an extensive renovation in 2009 and has been designed to Mr. Jordan s exacting specifications.
In addition to the main residence, there is also an attached three bedroom guesthouse, three separate, heated multi-car garages, a tennis court, a putting green, an infinity edge pool and an outdoor kitchen. One standout and fitting feature is a full-size indoor regulation basketball court, complete with a custom sound system, lounge and observation area, and full locker room facilities.
The attractively appointed and furnished residence along with grounds and magnificent facilities will afford a new owner the ultimate in privacy, security and amenities first cultivated for one of the world s most recognizable figures.
