First it was Tiger Woods' gargantuan new estate on Jupiter Island, complete with its own four golf holes and access to waterfront on both sides. Now comes a shot of Michael Jordan's 28,000-square foot setup at the Bears Club down the road in Jupiter.
According to realtor Cary Lichtenstein, Jordan paid a total of $12.4 million -- $4.8 million for the land, $7.6 for the construction -- making it the most expensive non-waterfront house in the Palm Beaches. It has a modest 11 bedrooms, a two-story guard house, an expansive athletic wing, and an enormous media room that is "cigar friendly," -- which may be a euphemistic way of saying it is breathing unfriendly.
Nonetheless, given Jordan's well-known affection for golf, and his proximity to the Bears Club, he looks like he will have plenty of chances to grab some fresh air.
