Basketball legend Scottie Pippen is ready to shed his custom mansion in Illinois, the state where he won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls. The former Bull’s 10,000-square-foot home is up for grabs at $1.899 million, records show.
Spanning 2.6 acres in Highland Park, a lakefront suburb of Chicago, the country club estate packs in such amenities as a brick wine cellar, a game room, a movie theater and a sauna. A custom indoor basketball court is emblazoned with Pippen’s jersey.
Oversized living spaces fill the floor plan. There’s a grand foyer, two-story living room, spacious formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, office and wet bar. A total of six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms include two master suites complete with spa bathrooms and custom walk-in closets.
French doors line the family room, opening to a stone patio that descends to an infinity-edge pool with a water slide and spa. A motor court and four-car garage sit behind gates in the front, and out back, mature trees populate the grassy grounds.
The home originally came up for sale three years ago for just under $3.1 million, according to the Chicago Tribune. Last year, the property was listed for $2.25 million — $25,000 more than Pipped paid for the property in 2004.
Melissa Mastros of Compass holds the listing.
