Luxury Property Listed By Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties

A Wexford Plantation vacation home previously owned by basketball legend Michael Jordan is back on the market.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. / Sept. 1, 2017 – A home in Wexford Plantation that was once owned by basketball great Michael Jordan is up for sale. The 3,150-square-foot home, which is listed by Kelly Ruhlin of Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties, is on the market for $749,000.
Jordan, who played for the Chicago Bulls at the time, purchased the three-bedroom home in 1988 for $550,000. The NBA Hall of Famer used the luxury property as a vacation home.
Kelly Ruhlin at Weichert, Realtos® – Coastal Properties is the listing agent for a Hilton Head Island property once owned by NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan.

“Jordan chose our community for the amenities,” said Ruhlin. “He loves golf and this gated community has amazing golf courses and tennis courts.”
He sold the house in 1999 to an investor from New Jersey for $475,000. Despite the fame of once being owned by Jordan, the Yorkshire Drive home eventually went into foreclosure in 2014. It was purchased and renovated by the current owner in 2015.
“The home’s current owner has spent the past two years renovating this house which comes with three bedrooms and three and a half baths, not to mention the world-class golf, tennis, yachting and dining amenities,” added Ruhlin. “The house also features an open-floor plan, which was not common at the time it was built.”
Other updates and features include a new rounded room with expansive windows, a three-zone HVAC system, electrical and plumbing upgrades, along with a complete aesthetic renovation of the home.
