Is there a Holy Grail of athlete real estate? Yes, there is and it’s the mansion in Highland Park, IL that Michael Jordan is trying to sell. We go through these athlete real estate deals on a daily basis and this $29,000,000 pad speaks for itself. Even Pete Sampras’s mansion can’t even compete. Ever wanted your own basketball arena? Ever wanted 27,000 sq. ft. of house? Are you a new Facebook millionaire?

Chicago media is going nuts over the news today that Jordan is parting with this property that’s been home for a long, long time. Nope, we’re not looking up an exact date.

Jordan’s real estate team writes:

Elegance & utmost privacy abound at this perfectly situated, privately gated estate nestled on over 7 acres. With outstanding attention to detail, function & style, this home is as comfortable as it is elegant. Lux entertaining areas & grounds create a stunning residence w/scale & finishes to perfection. Sold furnished w/excl.

If you’re so rich that those words sold you on this house, we feel sorry for you. Do you even use the Internet to find real estate valued over $25,000,000?
