By acclamation, the greatest basketball player of all time who led the Bulls to six national championships and earned the NBA Most Valuable Player Award five times, an Olympic athlete, business person and an actor, Michael Jordan now got a huge deal on his second home in the Charlotte, North Carolina, where the b-ball legend already owns a penthouse sited just next to the Bank of America. The Charlotte Bobcats owner who single-handedly redefined the NBA superstar actually purchased a $2.8 million Cornelius-based 12,310 sq. ft lakefront home, which is about 22 miles north of uptown Charlotte where the Bobcats play their home games. Reportedly, Jordan snagged the home at a significant deal. As this gated and private residence that offers stunning panoramic lake views from almost every room and has its very own private dock was originally listed for $3.99 million in year 2011, the bank foreclosed on the home in August 2012, and later it was re-listed for $3.49 million.
Built in 1993, the house formerly owned by drag race Doug Herbert boasts 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and a two-storey room that opens out to a stunning terraced patio, which also impressively features an enormous pool and spa. Further, there’s also an expansive basement that holds room for a personal gym and entertainment center.
Interestingly, the multi-millionaire Michael Jordan also owns a bunch of plush estates including his Bears Club home, Miami estate, Charlotte penthouse, incredible architectural estates and a number of restaurants, to name a few.
Notably, his custom estate in Chicago is currently on the market, and he recently bought a Jupiter, Florida, home on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course last year.
