Derek Jeter, the former Yankees shortstop and current CEO and part owner of the Miami Marlins, just decided to list his century old castle, known as Tiedemann Castle to locals, in the Village of Greenwood Lake in Orange County, New York.
Jeter has owned this 4-acre property since 2002 when he first bought the main house for $425,000 and then bought the remaining second parcel in 2005 for a total of $1.625M. The list price for this idiosyncratic waterside spread is $14.75M.
Originally built in 1915, the grey stone property has a main house, guesthouse, pool house and boat house. All total, there is 13,000 square feet of living space, 8 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, 4 indoor kitchens and one outdoor kitchen and fireplace.
The 3-story main house consists of 6 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, a sunroom, 2 offices, a formal dining room, a family room with bar and a game room. The guesthouse includes 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen and turret.
This quirky-ish property sits on 700 feet of Greenwood Lake and has its own lagoon. The infinity pool is pie-shaped and the extensive gardens and mature shade trees surprise visitors with a replica of the Statue of Liberty.
According to the listing agent, Diane Mitchell with Wright Brothers Real Estate, the property has been “lovingly restored with unparalleled attention to detail.”
Jeter now lives primarily in a 30,000 square foot custom-built mansion built upon 3 waterfront parcels in the Davis Islands area of Tampa, a 4 hour commute to his new team.
