Is this really happening to Derek Jeter’s Tampa mansion? Derek sold his Davis Islands mansion for $22.5 million in 2021. It is still the most expensive home ever sold in the Tampa Bay area. Tom Brady and his family rented it out from Jeter when Brady first became a Buccaneer.
Now, City of Tampa records show that the new owner of Jeter’s former house has filed for a commercial demolition permit. So, does that mean that Jeter’s house is going to be torn down? It looks like it and the house was only built in 2011. The house is almost 22,000 square feet. It also has 7 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a movie theater, a wine cellar, a gym and an air-conditioned six-car garage. It also has many other featured including having 345 feet of open bay on Davis Islands.
The new owner is a trust that is being run by a local lawyer. So, if the new owner tears down Derek Jeter’s Tampa mansion the look of Davis Islands will be looking a little different in the near future.
