Tom Brady needs to find new accommodation. His landlord, Yankees legend Derek Jeter, just sold the 22,000-square-foot Florida mansion he rented for $ 22.5 million.
It's a blockbuster sale, not only because of its connections with the two famous athletes, but also because of the impressive size of the property. Listing says it is the largest home in South Tampa and also the largest waterfront property ever built in the posh Davis Islands neighborhood, with a bay frontage of 345 feet by 1.25 acres.
Jeter, co-owner of the Miami Marlins and CEO of the team since 2017, bought the house for $ 29 million last year. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Brady was forthcoming to potential buyers and didn't turn down requests to prepare the place for tours.
Brady began renting the mega mansion shortly after signing a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It looks like the seven-time Super Bowl champion will land on his feet after moving out. Last year, Page Six reported that he and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen, bought a space on Indian Creek Island in Miami to demolish the existing 5,200-square-foot home and build a dream home in its place.
It will take a while for a place to be as palatial as Jeter's. The granite-limestone mansion is behind walls and has 22,000 square feet of interior design and an additional 9,000 square feet of terraces and balconies.
Inside, custom spaces combine hand-polished Venetian plaster of paris, hardwood mills, silk curtains, marble mosaic tiles, and window walls with views of the water. The massive rooms include a 24-foot foyer, two-story living room, and kitchen with four sinks and four dishwashers.
Typical amenities include a wine cellar, movie theater, and fitness studio, as well as a dedicated clubhouse with a curved wet bar, billiards room, game table, and direct access to the deck.
Seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms complete the house, including an owner's suite with a sitting area, fireplace, private balcony, steam shower and two walk-in closets. In the back, bubbling fountains lead to an 80-foot saltwater pool, spa, and dock with two boat lifts.
A baseball icon, Jeter spent the entire 20-year career of the New York Yankees, making 14 All-Star appearances and collecting five World Series titles, five Silver Slugger Awards, and five Gold Glove Awards. Last year, the 46-year-old was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in his freshman year.
Stephen Gay and Katherine Glaser of Smith & Associates Real Estate kept the listing. Toni Everett of Toni Everett Co. represented the buyer, who remains unclear.
