Michael Jordan’s house appears to be featured in The Last Dance, but the interviews were conducted in homes that were rented out. While the homes were made to look like Jordan’s house, the NBA legend did not want the interviews conducted in his actual residence. Director Jason Hehir explained to Insider that Jordan wanted to “keep private” certain parts of his life.
“There are certain aspects of his life that he wants to keep private,” Hehir explained. “…He just didn’t want people to see all that. I respected that so I never pushed back.”
Jordan has multiple homes including properties in Jupiter, Florida; Highland Park, Illinois; and Cornelius, North Carolina. The interview sets were designed to look like Jordan’s Jupiter home where he lives with his wife Yvette Prieto along with their twin daughters, Victoria and Ysabel. Hehir and the film crew looked for homes in the Jupiter area that resembled Jordan’s Florida pad.
“I looked for places that seemed like Michael might live in,” Hehir noted. “I knew what his real house looked like and I knew this is a wealthy guy who has certain tastes, so we wanted something to match that. …You’d be surprised how quickly people will open their doors when you say, ‘Can Michael Jordan come over and be interviewed at your house?'”
Jordan Spent an Estimated $20 Million on His Jupiter Property
According to Zillow, Jordan purchased multiple lots to build a 28,000 square foot house which sits on three acres and cost the NBA star an estimated $20 million for the land along with construction. Jordan’s house is located in the exclusive gated community known as The Bear’s Club which legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus played a key role in constructing.
Jordan’s Jupiter home includes 11 bedrooms, a basketball court, pool house and a guard house for security, per Echo Fine Properties. Jordan also is rumored to have a “cigar-friendly” media room where he can watch movies and sporting events. A similar room exists in Jordan’s former residence in Chicago.
