Being a Tourist in My Own Town
Today, I had an impromptu road trip with a couple of friends. We drove a couple of hours to meet another friend of ours who we hadn’t seen in over a year. We had a great time.
On the way back,my friend asked if I wanted to see Michael Jordan’s house. As you can see from the video, it is very modest. It is listed for 29 million and property taxes, a bargain (HA!) at over 165,000.
If you have a yearning for a garage that fits 15 cars, you are in luck. Not only that, apparently there is a bathroom for each car because there are 15 full bathrooms.
If you don’t feel claustrophobic with 9 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces,office, library, study, basketball court, tennis court, lake, and swimming pool – this is the home for you.
It’s almost 33,000 square feet on over 7 acres. But, my favorite part of the listing is “in-law arrangement.” I am guessing that is the 3 bedroom guesthouse which is probably an ample residence for many!
When you drive by it, all you see is the impressive gate and a driveway to the unknown.
Unbeknownst to me, I had passed his driveway many times.
When one has lived in the same area for a long time, it’s easy to forget what treasures are in the backyard. It was kind of cool being a tourist in my own town. If we all took on that perspective every now and then, we would probably reveal a wealth of wonderful new finds!
