Derek Jeter sells mansion once rented to Tom Brady for $22.5M

Derek Jeter has scored a home run and sold off his Tampa, Florida, mansion, which he once rented out to Tom Brady, for $22.5 million after nearly eight months on the market.

Originally listed at $29 million, the home sale is the largest sale ever in the Tampa Bay region, according to Smith & Associates Real Estate’s Stephen Gay and Katie Glaser, who were the listing agents for the record-breaking sale.

Located in the upscale Davis Islands community, the custom-designed private estate is also the largest waterfront property on the island. It’s also the largest home by square footage ever sold in South Tampa, clocking in at just under 22,000 square feet and overlooking 345 feet of open bay.

The former Yankee and Hall of Famer, 46, first listed the estate in September after Brady, 43, moved out.

Jeter leased the home to the seven-time Super Bowl champion and his wife, Gisele Bündchen, shortly after the quarterback signed on to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Gay said both Brady and Jeter once calling it home spurred major interest in the property.

“The Tampa Bay region had been quietly ramping up as a top city regarded for its high quality of life and fun-in-the-sun lifestyle, and then the Super Bowl came, and the secret was out,” Gay said. “A home like Jeter’s shows an evolution of what is possible and what is to come as Tampa continues to attract attention and luxury buyers.”

The burgeoning Tampa area, which Smith & Associates said is the fourth largest metropolitan area for new residents, also helped draw in a buyer.

“Our area is on fire, and people from all over the world are noticing. Our brokerage has sold some of the region’s largest homes for the highest price points ever, and the year isn’t even halfway through,” Smith & Associates president Bob Glaser said. “New developments like Tampa’s first five-star hotel, Tampa Edition, and the residences there are a part of the bigger story of Tampa’s influx of luxury buyers. This is the perfect place for a second home or to relocate and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle of Tampa Bay.”

Spanning a massive 21,796 square feet, the home features seven bedrooms and 16 bathrooms (eight full and eight half-baths).

The formal living room is situated in the center of the home with a fire place and aquarium.

The estate also boasts an expansive club room with a full-service bar, a billiards and game table, multiple TVs and a sitting area that comes with the home.

Outdoor amenities include a dock with two boat lifts, heated spa and an 80-foot saltwater lap pool.
