Selling this mansion in suburban Chicago ought to be a slam dunk for retired basketball star Scottie Pippen, who’s asking $3.1 million.
The 10,000-square-foot spread gives new meaning to the term “home court advantage” with a basketball court painted with a larger-than-life version of Pippen’s No. 33 jersey from the Chicago Bulls.
“The pool and basketball court add to this already incredible family home,” said listing agent Paul Gorney of Berkshire Hathaway KoenigRubloff Realty Group.
A short drive from Lake Michigan, this estate gets in the lane with 2.9 acres that include an infinity pool, spa and slide. There’s lots of room for plays with a two-story living room, a recreation room, sauna and steam rooms, and a wine cellar.
It runs the floor with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, including two master suites and a soaking tub big enough to relax even an Olympic “Dream Team” player. But if you’re looking for something even bigger, Michael Jordan is still trying to sell his estate just down the street.
