HIGHLAND PARK (AP) — Michael Jordan's sprawling suburban Chicago home is on the auction block.

The home will be offered for auction on Friday. Jordan's more than seven-acre estate in Highland Park has amenities that include a gentleman's retreat, nine bedrooms, a pool pavilion and an indoor basketball court.

The former Chicago Bulls star's home was originally listed at $29 million in early 2012. Now Concierge Auctions is handling the sale.

In touting the home, the auctioneer says it is "immaculately landscaped" and "offers the ultimate in privacy and luxury."

The gentleman's retreat comes complete with a billiard parlor, fireplace, library, a full wet bar and the original doors from the Playboy Mansion in Chicago.

Jordan now owns the Charlotte Bobcats.
