Here is a video tour of Derek Jeter’s Tampa, FL mega mansion from Fox 13. Hmm…now I’m even more interested to see what the inside looks like!

    Once again, I like the home, but why the heck would you put the bathroom 90 feet away, like running from 1st to 2nd base? Is it so he can stay in shape in the middle of the night, when nature calls?? Perhaps.

    But Batman, he’s not….

    REPULSIVE! the architect is a quack and so is the realtor. I can see without even using a scale that the toilet is not that far away from the bed area. what does he want- a toilet in between Jeter and Minka?

    If the smuck real estate guy didn’t say something outlandish, he wouldn’t have been on the local TV channel. His statement was self serving.

    This house is terrible.
    I love how the agent basically slammed the house as built by an athlete with no taste or culture, which most of the time is true. lol
    I have a neighbor who did something a lot similar to Jeter.
    Grew up not well off, basically a hick that did not graduate high school, got rich, decided that he would build one the biggest houses in town and designed it himself, and it is awful and unsellable.
    It is amazing how many people refuse to hire a proper architect or don’t know how to walk through a floorplan in their head to see if it flows right.

    Ha. “Baseball eclectic”. Ya, that’s a good description. You would think though he would have built it somewhere a little more private. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the square-footage number is irrelevant, it is how you use it. Judging from the layout and the exterior, the home is probably very cavernous and very white. I expect a contemporary interior with huge open spaces and an echo that will never go away. It’s cold, ugly and will probably be on the market in less than 5 years, with a selling price under $15 million (but an asking price of over $30 million).

      As usual Dan, you & I will always completely disagree on the issue of square footage. But I agree with you & all the others that this place is a monstrosity of a mistake. And you’re right again, in that it’ll be on the market in probably 5 years (IF that long) and will be utterly unsellable. When that times comes, if Jeter get’s one third of what it cost him to build it, I’d be amazed.

      Sighhhhhhhh………TRUE good taste is about as common as I.Q. points are for George Bush.

    In the previous post I said the front does have potential. It stil does, sadly it’s ruined by the rest of the house (the back, the layout, the size etc.)

    Definitely it’s not so bad, but, with such cold exterior, it certainly doesn’t belong in Tampa.

    I have a feeling though that the interior will be nice, warm and elegant.It can’t be
    so disastrous as the exterior.By the way, the architect(s) asked Jeter about the color of the exterior?Did they informed him that this house will be in Tampa AND NOT IN CT?But, I guess that bad taste has no healing…

    I don’t get it? This home is nothing special but not quite as bad as I thought. I like the size but I would have built a traditional home instead.

    ummmmmm…. no dumb news lady it definitely does not have a wayne manor feel???? did that twit honestly just compare a dark/castle-like/maybe tudor style wayne manor to this ugly, waterfront home????? they are completely different styles by nature.. blonde. this house is ugly and dumb. perfect example of why these people playing a “game” for a living shouldnt make near as much as they do.. because then they build a big ugly home like this with no resale appeal, and no taste. obviously no one gave this home or the floor plan too much consideration before building it.

      Watch it there, Oliver………I’m blonde, too! 🙂

      But you couldn’t possibly more right…….this place is CATEGORICALLY ridiculous & ugly. I also agree with you completely that it’ll be on the market in 5 years (IF that long) and Jeter, MAYBE, will get 1/3 of what it cost to build this monstrosity.
