Homeowner Derek Jeter is selling his house, the same one that VIP renter, Tom Brady, currently lives, for $29 million. The mansion monstrosity that overlooks Hillsborough Bay in Tampa Bay has everything a five- or six-time world champion, or average, mega-rich guy or gal would want. Seven bedrooms, a killer saltwater pool, gym, home theater and 16 bathrooms. That’s one bathroom for every world championship, MVP award and future Hall of Fame induction these two GOATS have combined.
The world’s luckiest broker, Stephen Gay, who stands to make about $600,000 on the sale of the home, told the New York Times that the builders of the house paid as much attention to detail as Brady does on studying a game plan. “The millwork and the custom paneling throughout the house is just spectacular. For us in Tampa, the craftsmanship that went into it was unheard of in this area,” Gay said.
Jeter built and lived in the house when he was wrapping up his playing career with the New York Yankees. The Tampa location made life convenient for him during spring training and gave him a nice winter home in the off-season. But now, he’s living 280 miles away and running the Miami Marlins as co-owner and CEO.
Future buyers hoping to catch a glimpse of Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, sunbathing by the pool during an open house can wake up from their fantasy. The broker has worked out special viewing times when Brady and his family won’t be disturbed.
