Celebrity Homes ~ Michael Jordan

Frrrooooommmmmm North Carolina.....Standing 6'6''...number 23.....

     Yes, this Celebrity homes post is about non other than the basketball revolutionary who goes by the name of Michael Jordan.  Although he is best remembered for his time in Chicago with the Bulls, Jordan has moved back to Tar Heel country; that's right, North Carolina. According to Fox Sports, Jordan has just purchased a home in Cornelius, NC which is only 22 miles away from the Charlotte Bobcats arena where Jordan is the majority owner of the club. The home was bought for $2.8 million, which for Jordan seems quite conservative. However, Jordan seemed to work his magic once again. The home was originally listed for $3.99 million in 2011, but then went through a foreclosure and was re-listed for $3.49 million until it was swindled down to a mere $2.8 million.
     The home sits on a lot that extends out into Lake Norman inside a private and gated community. Built in 1993, this 12,310 square foot home features 6 bedrooms and 8 baths, a basement holding a home entertainment center and person gym, and a two-story great room which opens out to a terraced patio holding a pool and spa. This home is just an addition to his Real Estate collection featuring his custom estate in Chicago (currently on the market), his home in Jupiter, Florida, another home in Salt Lake City, along with a condo in Charlotte.
