Retired Yankee slugger Derek Jeter has slashed the price of his massive castle in upstate New York. It’s now back on the market for $12.75 million — down from $14.75 million in 2018.
Now that he’s a part owner and CEO of the Miami Marlins, Jeter spends most of his time in the Sunshine State.
But the castle comes with quite the family history.
Jeter’s maternal grandfather, William Connors, grew up here, when the castle was owned by his adopted parents, John and Julia Tiedemann, and Jeter spent many summers at the family compound.
In the aughts, it had come back on the market and Jeter snapped it up for $1.2 million.
The 4-acre estate sits on Greenwood Lake, which straddles New York and New Jersey, and is just “a one-hour drive” and 50 miles away from Midtown Manhattan.
“It’s a magical, special place, with beautiful lake views from almost every room. It’s very peaceful,” listing broker Diane Mitchell, of Wright Bros. Real Estate, tells Gimme.
The 7-mile lake had once been a chill celeb spot for Greta Garbo and Babe Ruth — and a destination for generations of Yankees fans.
The castle, completed in 1915, is now being marketed as a pandemic-friendly work-and-play family compound.
So what do you get for your millions?
The estate, which includes 700 feet of shoreline, features 12,590 square feet of living space.
There’s a main house, a guest house and a pool house. The five-bedroom main house is 9,067 square feet and features five bedrooms and two fireplaces.
The guest house, at 1,192 square feet, features one bedroom and a fireplace, while the charming pool house does not include any bedrooms.
The manicured grounds are anchored by an infinity pool, an outdoor kitchen and fireplace, a lagoon — and a Statue of Liberty replica.
Jeter and wife Hannah (née Davis) are also still trying to sell their Tampa, Fla., mansion — which Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen had formerly rented — at 58 Bahama Circle. That home is still on the market for $29 million.
The couple and their kids are currently living in a Coconut Grove, Fla., manse they picked up for $6.5 million in 2018, according to reports.
