Take a tour of Derek Jeter’s incredible lakeside castle in New York, which he bought for $425,000 and is selling for $14.75 million

  • The legendary New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has placed his stunning Greenwood Lake, New York, castle on the market.
  • Jeter initially purchased the 4.01-acre property for $425,000 in 2003, but he has listed the home for a whopping $14.75 million after significant renovations.
  • Jeter’s fortress comes equipped with five kitchens, a turret, a game room, an infinity pool, a replica of the Statue of Liberty, and much more.
  • Check out photos of the home below.

At one point, the New York Yankees superstar shortstop Derek Jeter was the king of New York, so it’s only fitting that the five-time World Series champion lived in a castle.

Jeter purchased his 4.01-acre Greenwood Lake, New York, property for $425,000 in 2003 and converted it into a fortress. Now that the MLB royal and Miami Marlins owner has relocated to Florida, he does not need the stunning compound and has decided to list it with Diane Mitchell of Wright Bros. Real Estate Inc.

The castle, which is roughly 45 miles northwest of Yankee Stadium, appeared on the market in June 2018 and is listed for a whopping $14,750,000. Jeter’s lakeside palace – affectionately dubbed the “Gem on the Lake” in the official listing – features nearly 700 feet of shoreline, five kitchens, a turret, a game room, an infinity pool, and a replica of the Statue of Liberty.

Check out photos of Jeter’s home below:

The gorgeous property is in Greenwood Lake, New York, roughly 45 miles northwest of Yankee Stadium.

It’s so large that there is a bridge connecting one side of the property with the other.

The stone home — known as Tiedemann Castle — comes complete with fountains and gardens around the outside.

And it has a beautiful waterfall.

There’s a replica of the Statue of Liberty, too.

It’s a beautiful place to take a nice walk …

Wright Brothers Real Estate

… or sit and watch boats pull into the marina.

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

The house’s grandest feature — a multistory turret — sits alongside the river.

source
Realtor.com

It looks even more impressive up close.

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

Although the walk to the top seems like a serious trek …

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

… the view from the top is definitely worth it.

Wright Brothers Real Estate

In total, the property boasts nearly 700 feet of shoreline.

source
Realtor.com

So it makes sense that many of the rooms in the home have gorgeous views of the water.

Now let’s take a look inside.

The grand entryway features wooden archways, a winding staircase, and a piano.

Here’s another look from the other side.

The house boasts 12,590 square feet.

source

It’s filled with spacious rooms and tall ceilings.

The home was built in 1903, and Jeter has special ties to the property.

His maternal grandfather grew up in the castle after he was adopted by the Tiedemann family.

This kitchen — in the main house — is one of the five kitchens spread throughout the two-parcel property.

With a breakfast nook, an island, and a big kitchen table, this kitchen looks like a gathering spot in Jeter’s castle.

Here’s another kitchen.

It’s really a chef’s dream.

Wright Brothers Real Estate

And here’s a third kitchen.

This one has a great view of the lake.

source
Realtor.com

And there are plenty of cozy dens in the main house.

source
Realtor.com

This library overlooks some of the gardens surrounding the house.

source
Realtor.com

The house has six bedrooms …

source
Realtor.com

… seven full bathrooms …

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

… and five half baths.

source
Realtor.com

The office is complete with a large desk and a conference table.

source
Realtor.com

But the house is also equipped with an awesome game room for when it’s time to kick back and relax.

source
Realtor.com

And it has a bar that’s great for hosting.

source
Realtor.com

This den is probably big enough to fit the entire Yankees roster.

source
Realtor.com

It’s the perfect place to catch a game or watch a movie.

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

This dining room may have been the site of team dinners.

source
Realtor.com

There’s a home gym where you can get in some MLB-caliber reps.

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

Stepping outside feels like stepping back in time.

source

But the infinity pool is as modern as it gets.

Check out the aerial view.

There’s an outdoor kitchen nearby.

Wright Brothers Real Estate

Jeter’s house also has a hot tub …

… and a giant bell. Frankly, we aren’t sure what that’s for.

source

There’s plenty of garage space for Jeter’s luxury cars.

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

And there’s a jungle gym for the kids.

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

The home really feels like a medieval castle in some spots.

source
Wright Brothers Real Estate

So it’s somewhat surprising that Jeter hasn’t found a buyer for the New York fortress. Of course, the former Yankee is estimated to be worth $185 million, so he can afford to wait for the right owner to come along and purchase his old pad.
