The personal residence in Highland Park, Illinois was presented for sale by Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner Real Estate and will be marketed globally by Luxury Portfolio International. With an asking price of $29 million, the secluded compound offers over 56,000 square feet of livable space on three levels; including nine bedrooms, more than 15 baths, and five fireplaces.
Designed to Jordan’s exacting specifications, the tastefully furnished and luxuriously appointed property will afford its owner the ultimate in privacy, security and amenities. In addition to the main residence, the estate features an attached and beautifully appointed three bedroom guesthouse, an indoor/outdoor entertaining and pool area, an outdoor tennis court, a putting green, a deep water pond, and three separate climate-controlled multi-car garages. The residence was constructed between 1993 and 1995, and extensively renovated in 2009.
Among the most extraordinary features of the sprawling estate is the attached indoor basketball complex. Completed in 2001, the recreational facility has a separate entry and nearby parking area. It features a full size regulation basketball court with specially cushioned hardwood flooring, adjustable backstops and baskets, and competition-quality high intensity lighting. The court also has a one-of-a-kind sound system with speakers expressly “tuned” to provide perfect acoustics within the court space.
