Anyone who approaches from the ground can tell right away that this estate belongs to the legendary No. 23, Michael Jordan — and that might be what’s keeping it from selling. “It’s clearly his home,” said Bruce Bowers of Bowers Realty Group, adding: “There’s a lot of work that would have to be done to make it your own.”

The price on the house has dropped several times and is now going for $14.9 million, or about $265 a square foot — that’s a far cry from the original price of $517 a square foot. The exact price is $14,855,000, and the numbers in that price add up to 23 — Jordan’s basketball jersey number.

The long drive from the gate and the full-grown trees ensure that the house has privacy.

There’s also a pond stocked with fish.

While the outdoor space is sprawling and undoubtedly impressive …

… the inside is equally spectacular. When guests first walk in the front door, they are greeted by this view, which includes a piano in the background.

The piano room doubles as one of many sitting rooms in the house.

And here’s a look at another sitting area dubbed the “great room” — this isn’t the only great room around the house, though.

Jordan’s luxurious taste even shows itself in details like doorways. The set of doors seen below are from the original Playboy Mansion in Chicago.

They lead to a game room with a pool table.

Of course, since this is the former home of Michael Jordan, there is a full-court basketball court. It’s the centerpiece of the house.

The court has the legend’s name at both ends …

While guests wait for their turn on the court, they can hang out in this sitting area.

Moving along to the dining room, guests were able to eat at this “Baghdad table.”

Detailed eating areas are somewhat of a theme. Here we can see a beautiful skylight positioned perfectly over the kitchen table.

In one of the dining areas just off the kitchen, there is a large aquarium built into the wall.

The house has nine bedrooms …

There is also a cigar room, which has been decorated intricately with a detailed ceiling.

The cigar room also has plenty of card tables where we’re guessing Jordan played some high-stakes poker games — he is known for his love of gambling, after all.

The home also features a full gym.

Jordan’s Bulls teammates used to work out there every morning, according to an interview shared by Concierge Auctions.

The library upstairs was said to be Jordan’s favorite room. It features a drop-down movie screen.

Between the house and the patio, there’s another TV room with a 110-inch screen.

This area used to be an indoor pool. Jordan renovated it after he moved in and added sliding walls to both sides that can make the gathering room either indoor or outdoor depending on the mood and the weather.
