Former Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen sells Highland Park home – Crain’s Chicago Business

Chicago Bulls great Scottie Pippen sold his Highland Park home for sizably less than he paid 17 years ago.

Pippen sold the 10,000-square-foot home on Old Mill Road for $1.8 million Oct. 8. That’s about 81% of the $2.225 million that Scottie and Larsa Pippen paid for the house in 2004. (See more photos below.)

The five-bedroom house on a little under 2.7 acres first was listed in 2016 with an asking price of just over $3 million. By the time of the sale, Pippen had cut his asking price to just under $2 million. The asking price was actually higher than Pippen had been asking before the Summer Olympics, when the two-time Olympian offered his house on Airbnb as a good short-term rental for watching the games.

Scottie Pippen now lives in Los Angeles and is no longer with Larsa, although it’s not clear whether their divorce has been finalized. Pippen could not be reached for comment, and the agent for both Pippen and the buyers, Paul Gorney of Exp Realty, did not respond to a request for comment.

Built in 2003, the house has a home theater, an indoor basketball court and an outdoor swimming pool.

Scottie Pippen played with the Bulls from 1987 to 1998, years in which the Bulls were NBA champions six times.

This is not the home Pippen owned during his years with the six-time champion Bulls; he sold that home, on Shady Lane in Highland Park a few blocks from Michael Jordan’s mansion, in 1996. Pippen bought the Old Mill Road house in 2004, after he returned to the Bulls for the final season of his NBA career.

The Chicago Tribune was first to report the Old Mill Road sale.
