You Could Live in Derek Jeter’s Castle in New York (For a Price)

Iconic Yankee, Derek Jeter, is selling his “single family” home in Greenwood Lake, New York, for $14,750,000.

Apparently in Derek Jeter language, “single family” means six bedrooms, seven full baths, and five half-baths. So, if you’re a mega-fan of No. 2, have a thing for old colonial style (the house was built in 1915), or define “single family” by the same ludicrous terms, this could be your new digs.

Locals around the neighborhood in Warwick Town know Jeter’s house as Tiedemann Castle because it’s a big damn house. A gate allows entry beyond the 6-foot stone wall where the restored castle is divided into two parcels that make up the estate, including a main house, guest house, pool house, infinity pool, magnificent gardens, lagoon, boat house, and more.

I repeat: “single family.” Which I guess makes sense, considering there’s only one elevator.

There are, however, four indoor kitchens, perhaps that way you, your partner, and two kids can have their own cooking spaces. (Pork chops in one and monkey bread in another!) The outdoor kitchen with rustic wood-burning fireplace can be shared by everyone.

The total 4.01 acres of Derek Jeter’s New York castle stretches down to views of Greenwood Lake, within eyeshot of the New Jersey border. Climb a turret stairway for access to the roof and the views intensify ten-fold.

Of course, if you end up living in the home of Mr. November, you’re required to come in clutch for your friends and throw a weekly barbecue in the summer. Entertain your rowdy mates at the pool house, complete with expansive patio space. There’s also a game room and “Great Room” which sounds … great?

And with a property this massive, you better believe there’s a handful of escape dens that offer peace and quiet from your massive “single family.” Sorry, we just can’t get over that.

Tiedemann Castle was listed by Diane Mitchell with Wright Brothers Real Estate in early July, and believe me if we had $15 million we’d sprint to buy it.

Did you not hear, this was Derek Jeter’s house. You know, the man who’s dated Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Minka Kelly, Jordana Brewster, Hannah Davis, and Adriana Lima. The legend that since his rookie year on the Yankees in 1996 through to his Captain days of 2003-2014 embodied all that is magical about the sport of baseball.

Hell yeah, we want to live in Jeter’s castle, park in Jeter’s garage, and pee in Jeter’s toilet.

And, for just that pesky little sum of $14.8 million, we can.

Tips to help your investment last longer
Tempur-Pedic Tempur Adapt mattress

Buying a Tempur-Pedic mattress is a process that should be done with an ample amount of care and consideration. Not only can mattresses be quite a significant financial investment, but because they serve as your foundation for sleeping night after night for what should be many years, it’s extremely important to buy a high-quality, comfortable mattress. After all, a poorly made mattress will break down prematurely and may fail to provide the support, pressure relief, temperature regulation, and comfort you need to get restful sleep. A bad mattress can even cause back, shoulder, hip, or neck pain, and if it does an inadequate job of arresting the transfer of motion, you may find yourself constantly disturbed by a bed partner's restlessness.

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are among the upper echelon of mattresses in terms of quality, comfort, and effective design, which is why they are consistently one of the most popular mattress purchases every year and adored by nearly every customer. Each Tempur-Pedic mattress model is specifically designed to precisely adapt to the weight, shape, and temperature of your body to eliminate potential pressure points and intimately contour to your body to provide maximal cradling support and comfort. The materials and construction of each mattress minimize motion transfer and enhance airflow and heat dispersion.
