MJ sure knows how to spend his money

Michael Jordan is one of the wealthiest athletes in the entire world, with an estimated worth of more than $3 billion. As crafty as His Airness was on the basketball court, he was just as savvy off it, making smart investments in businesses and forging partnerships that have only added to his already impressive net worth.

One of the most notable aspects of Jordan’s portfolio is his real estate investments. The former Chicago Bulls star has several luxurious properties scattered across the United States, each with unique features and history. Here’s a look at some of Michael Jordan’s most extravagant homes.

Highland Park

First is the Highland Park estate in Illinois, where Jordan spent much of his NBA career with the Bulls. This is Jordan’s most famous piece of property, highlighted by the massive iron gates that bear his jersey number “23.” The 56,000-square-foot mansion boasts unique amenities like a basketball court, cigar room, a home theater, and a game room.

The property was put up for sale in 2012 for a whopping $29 million and has since been lowered to $14.9 million. However, nobody has yet taken ownership of this extravagant property.

Penthouse with a majestic view of Lake Michigan

In 1992, Jordan acquired a magnificent penthouse in Chicago for $3 million. This exquisite abode boasts an open layout with a lounge, dining room, and a media room featuring a humidor. Positioned to overlook the scenic Lake Michigan and the captivating city skyline, the apartment has four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and even a private rooftop deck.

Vacation home in Utah

Jordan also has a glorious mansion nestled in the serene landscapes of Park City, Utah. Crafted with a fusion of exquisite stone and wood, this sprawling 9,574-square-foot abode welcomes visitors with a picturesque stone walkway and grand double-height glass doors.

Inside, one can discover five luxurious bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The master suite, boasting a private balcony, offers breathtaking vistas of the majestic Wasatch Mountains and the prestigious Glenwild Golf Club. Although Jordan listed this remarkable vacation home for only $7.5 million, it has yet to fetch a buyer.

Palatial space in Florida

In 2010, Jordan acquired three acres of land in the prestigious Bear’s Club community located in Jupiter, Florida. Demonstrating his commitment to creating an exceptional living space, he proceeded to construct a magnificent mansion spanning a remarkable 28,000 square feet. This opulent residence boasts 11 bedrooms, a media room, a pool house, and ample athletic facilities. Jordan currently resides in this exquisite property alongside his wife, Yvette, and their daughters.

A Lakehouse in North Carolina

In 2011, Jordan acquired a splendid lakefront residence in Cornelius, North Carolina. Situated a mere 22 miles north of his uptown Charlotte condominium, this exquisite abode has panoramic views of the picturesque Lake Norman, thanks to its expansive floor-to-ceiling windows.

With his influence on the basketball game, MJ is truly living like a legend, and this portfolio is just one of the proofs of that.
