Last year, the property tax bill alone was $165,224. And this year's sales price of Michael Jordan's Highland Park mansion in Illinois? A potential record-setting $29 million.
Mind you, for that price you get not only the home's pedigree, but the NBA champ's nine bedrooms, 19 bathrooms and indoor basketball court, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
On top of a 32,683 sq.-ft. family house built in 1995 (where Michael and Juanita Jordan raised their three children while they were married), the property also includes a guest house, 500-bottle wine cellar and custom wood-trimmed cigar parlor.
"It's such a beautiful house," realtor Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner, which is representing the sale, tells the Sun-Times. "Every weekend people from all over the world came to see Michael's house."
