With March Madness in full swing, it’s only appropriate that we center our Note-able Neighborhood spotlight this week on a few of basketballs current stars and timeless legends.
First up on the list, is Eagles head coach Andy Enfield, who, besides piloting his 15th-seed team to an unprecedented Sweet Sixteen run in the NCAA Tournament, has listed his luxury home in Fort Meyers, FL. The home is a reasonable size with four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,400 square feet, and has a recently reduced price of $675,000. The home has been on the market for over a year and so the drop in price is actually $50,000 less than what they originally paid for property in early 2011. Of course the interior is only the best with a modern Mediterranean design, the hand-carved wood floors, chef’s kitchen and a patio, pool and spa.
Another college basketball coach also chose to list his home on the market on the eve of March Madness. Lon Kruger in his second season with the Oklahoma Sooners, is selling his 10,153-square-foot Las Vegas estate. The property is said to be listed at roughly $5 million dollars. It sits in a Golf Club property on an exclusive double lot. The home itself has a Tuscan design, curved hardwood staircase and marble flooring, gourmet kitchen with custom fixtures, and professional grade appliances. Of course there’s a wet-bar in the family room and outside has a pool, lagoon, outdoor kitchen and covered loggias.
Of course, when it comes to basketball, there is really no name that resonates quite like Michael Jordan. Mr. Jordan recently celebrated his 50th birthday and treated himself to a new 12,310 square foot birthday present.The $2.8 million purchase is a lakefront property in North Caroline with panoramic views of the water from nearly every room. Of course the estate comes fully loaded, Mr. Jordan would have nothing less. Three levels of palatial living complete with a regal living room with an fantastic vaulted ceiling, entertainment and exercise areas, game rooms, dance floors, and even a spa room with its own sauna. This new home is one of the smallest of many estates under Mr. Jordan’s ownership.Currently, he has a home for sale in Highland Park, IL mansion, which currently lists for $21 million, at 56,000 square feet with its own indoor basketball court, of course. Then there’s his recent purchase in Florida which is a 28,000 square foot “golf home” for the off-season, of course.
