- In 2018, legendary New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter placed his stunning Greenwood Lake, New York, castle on the market.

- More than four years after it first went up for grabs, Jeter’s home still has not sold and is now headed for auction with an opening bid of $6.5 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
- Jeter’s fortress, located about 45 miles northwest of Yankee Stadium, comes equipped with five kitchens, a turret, a game room, an infinity pool, a replica of the Statue of Liberty, and nearly 700 feet of shoreline.

At one point, the New York Yankees superstar shortstop Derek Jeter was the king of New York, so it’s only fitting that the five-time World Series champion lived in a castle.
Jeter purchased his 4.01-acre Greenwood Lake, New York, property for $425,000 in 2003 and converted it into a fortress. Now that the MLB royal has relocated to Florida, he doesn’t need the stunning compound and decides to list it with Diane Mitchell of Wright Bros. Real Estate Inc.
The castle, which is roughly 45 miles northwest of Yankee Stadium, appeared on the market in June 2018 and was listed for a whopping $14.8 million. Jeter’s lakeside palace — affectionately dubbed the “Gem on the Lake” in the official listing — couldn’t find a buyer so it went up for auction with a starting bid of $6.5 million.
