Former NBA superstar Michael Jordan is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. But prior to proposing to his longtime girlfriend, Yvette Prieto, in December, the couple moved out of his 32,000 square foot Chicago mansion, and into a modest 2,600 sq ft house in a suburb of Miami.
According to the Huffington Post, the asking price for Jordan’s Chicago mansion is $29 million. The 32,683 square foot house is being sold fully-furnished, including the customized gate with the Chicago Bulls star’s former number, 23.
The contemporary 2-story house, which was built in 1995, contains nine bedrooms, 15 full bathrooms and 4 half baths. (And of course, a full basketball court.) It boasts an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor tennis court and a driving range and putting greens for those golf enthusiasts among you.
If you’re interested in purchasing Jordan’s former home, you can contact the listing agents Baird & Warner, but you must be pre-qualified for a $29 million dollar loan before you can take a tour of the home.
Meanwhile, Jordan and his Cuban-born fiancee live a quiet life in their new crib in the gated Highlands at Kendall area of Miami Fla.
According to Berg Properties, the new house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. They paid $281,000 for the house that was originally listed at $340,000, which means they got the house for a steal.
Jordan and Prieto plan to be together for a long long time. According to public records, they took out a $196,000, 30-year mortgage on the house in February.
In 2006, Jordan’s ex-wife and mother of his 3 kids, Juanita, walked away from their 17-year marriage with a cool $168 million dollar settlement.
Jordan also owns 4 other properties, including a penthouse unit in a luxury building at 1100 N. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago; and two vacant lots in the Bears Club in Jupiter, Fla., which he purchased last year for $4,800,000, according to Berg Properties.com.
