If you saw my post Friday (which is below), you took in all the pictures & details of Derek Jeter’s new 30,000+ sq ft Mega Mansion in Davis Islands, FL, which happens to be equivalent in size to a Best-Buy electronics store. That however isn’t the only piece of real estate Jeter owns. Records show Jeter owns a 4,493 sq ft house he bought back in 1997 for $625K, located within the secured gates of the Avila Golf and Country Club in Tampa, FL. He also owns a historic castle-like mansion in Greenwood Lake in Upstate New York, and another mansion in Marlboro, NJ. Although the highlighted property for today is Jeter’s Manhattan Penthouse in the Trump World Tower, with a price-tag of $20M dollars.
The bachelor pad is a roaring 5,425 sq ft with 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 16-foot floor to ceiling windows that show off his amazing Manhattan views of the Chrysler Building, Central Park, the Empire State Building, George Washington Bridge, Downtown and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. The home also includes a chef’s eat in kitchen, dining room, media room, library/den, gallery, home office, living room with a fireplace, a Lutron lighting and shading system, a Crestron home audio/visual system, Panasonic IP phone system and a 3COM managed wireless network system.
The home faces South off the 88th floor in this 900 ft high rise; although, since the number of stories do not add up to the elevator buttons in the Trump World Tower, Jeter’s home is actually on the 70th floor. Still, as you can see, it’s not lacking in the view, quality or privacy.
Jeter put the penthouse on the market last fall at the same $20M price (he originally bought it in 2001 for $12.6M). This was all during the time when his contract was coming to an end and rumors were flying around as to where this soon to be free agent could be going. However, all of that ended in December when Jeter signed a $51M contract with the Yankees, keeping him in NY for another 3 years. Hopefully within that time, Jeter and his real estate broker will find a new owner for this incredible Manhattan home.
