OAKLAND TOWNSHIP (WWJ) — Former Piston Ben Gordon has reduced the asking price on his Oakland Township mansion after almost one year on the market.
The almost 14,000 square foot property — first listed at a little more than $4.2 million — is now offered at just over $3 million. The home includes a full court gym, cabana and library.READ MORE: MRLA Offering Free Food Safety Classes for Kids
Karen Walls of RE/MAX, the agent handling the sale, spoke with WWJ about what the mansion includes.
“It’s a beautiful home, it’s a beautiful mansion,” Walls said. “It’s clean as a whistle, it’s a different looking home, it’s beautiful and I just want people to know that this is for a family.”READ MORE: Whitmer: $32M Investment To Recruit, Retain Police Officers
Walls said that they have already received an offer at the new price.
“I believe this home will go fast because we already have an offer and there’s a couple of people already interested,” Walls said. “Out of all the homes there, his is one of the largest. So what he was thinking then was ‘let me try the market’ and can understand that. As time went on, we started receiving offers and it wasn’t anything that we quite wanted.”MORE NEWS: Deputies Find Human Remains In Mid-Michigan Soybean Field
Gordon signed a five-year for $55 million contract with the Pistons in 2009 before being traded to the Charlotte Bobcats in 2012.
