Derek Jeter selling Tampa home for $29 million

Tom Brady may be looking for a new home soon.

No, the Tampa Bay quarterback is not leaving town just yet, even though he had a tough debut for the Buccaneers on Sunday. But his landlord is selling the house he is renting.

Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter has listed his 30,875-square-foot Tampa home on the market, the Tampa Bay Times reported. The seven-bedroom home, which includes eight full bathrooms and eight half-baths, sits on 1.25 acres on Davis Islands overlooking Hillsborough Bay and includes nearly 9,000 square feet of outdoor space, Bob Glaser, CEO of Smith & Associates Real Estate, the firm that is handling the listing, told the newspaper.

Asking price? A cool $29 million.

“This is the most impressive home to ever hit the market in the Tampa Bay area,” Stephen Gay, the Realtor handling the listing, told The New York Times.

Brady and his family have been renting from Jeter, who moved into a 19th-floor condominium in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood when he took over the Marlins in 2017, the Miami Herald reported.

Brady has not moved out, but the two sports legends have "negotiated favorable terms for both of them so that the Jeters could market and list the property,” Sarah Lesch, a spokesperson for Smith & Associates, told the Tampa Bay Times.

“Davis Islands provided a quiet, safe, and friendly lifestyle that we will always cherish," Jeter said in a statement.

The Jeter home in Tampa takes up three adjacent lots along Bahama Circle, The New York Times reported in 2011. Jeter’s corporation, Kered Connors L.L.C., bought the lots in 2005 and 2006 for $7.7 million, the newspaper reported Tuesday.

Prospective buyers will not get to meet Brady or his wife, Gisele Bündchen, but Glaser said the house will still draw some interest despite its size and price tag.

“Tampa isn’t an area with a large number of trophy properties,” Glaser told The New York Times. "But when they do become available, there’s a lot of interest.”
