Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter lists Tampa home for $29M
September 16, 2020
iAdiós, Tampa! The Jeter family is saying its final goodbye to the Big Guava after moving to the Magic City.
Miami Marlins’ partner and CEO Derek Jeter and his wife Hannah Jeter, a model, are selling their 22,000-square-foot waterfront estate in Tampa for $29 million. The two-story house in the Davis Islands neighborhood has seven bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms, wine cellar, movie theater, gym and six-car garage. The private dock features two boat lifts.
The sale may force out the home’s current renters — Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and his wife and model Gisele Bündchen. The couple has been renting the house since April.
“Davis Island is ranked as one of the best places to live in the country,” said listing Realtor Stephen Gay of Smith & Associates by email. “It is a quaint community with waterfront properties, a beach with waterfront walking trails and a sailing club, a small shopping district and a private airport. Residents often ride their golf carts throughout the island stopping at a neighbors house to chat or for sunset watching at the end of the island. Close to Downtown Tampa and in an A-rated school district.”
The Jeter family bought a total of 1.25 acres between 2005 and 2006 for $6 million. Jeter assembled the adjoining three lots and built the home in 2012, according to Gay.
The house is listed for $1,318 per square foot, 22% higher than the most recent comparable sale. A nearby 8,901-square-foot single-family home sold for $9.1 million in July, or $1,022 per square foot.
Jeter and wealth manager Bruce Sherman bought the Miami Marlins in 2017. He purchased his 5,200-square-foot condo unit at Grove at Grand Bay later that year.
