Former baseball player Derek Jeter, 46, who made history with the Yankees, decided to put up for sale the imposing medieval-style castle that he owns in New York and that was built in 1903.
The current CEO of the Florida Marlins is asking for his spectacular residence for a total of $ 12.75 million, a figure lower than what he expected to receive three years ago when he announced it at $ 14.8 million.
The property has great sentimental significance for Jeter, like his grandfather, William ‘Sonny’ Connors lived there after being adopted by the Tiedemann family.
The Tiedemann’s lived in the castle from 1953 to 2003, the year it was bought by the exshortstop.
Two years after the purchase, Jeter acquired one of the parcels next door after spending $ 1.2 million.
According to the datasheet, the property consists of 12,590 square feet of construction and is situated on a 4.01-acre site.
It has six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, five half baths, hallway, four kitchens, dining room, dining room, living room, main room, game room, TV room, office, meeting room, library, bar, balconies, elevator, among other rooms.
Outside there is a guest house, a pool house, a swimming pool, a boathouse, an outside kitchen, a waterfall, a replica of the Statue of Liberty, fountains, extensive green areas, and an exit to Lake Greenwood.
From the castle, you have enviable views, as it has an imposing tower several feet high, from which you can see various points of New York and New Jersey.
Despite its 118 years old, the castle looks like in its best days, as it has not stopped being restored.
Derek Jeter also owns an imposing property in Tampa Bay, Florida, which became the temporary home of Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen. The price of this is located at $ 29 million dollars.
