  • In 2018, legendary New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter put a stunning castle on the market in Greenwood Lake, New York.

  • Jeter purchased the 4.01-acre property for $425,000 in 2003, but after extensive renovations, listed the home for a whopping $14.75 million.

  • More than four years after it was first acquired, Jeter’s home still hasn’t sold and is currently being auctioned for a bid of $6.5 million. According to The Wall Street Journal.

  • Located about 45 miles northwest of Yankee Stadium, Jeter’s Fortress features five kitchens, a turret, a game room, an infinity pool, a replica of the Statue of Liberty, and nearly 700 feet of coastline.

  • Check out the photos of the house below.

It’s a little surprising that Jeter didn’t find a buyer for the New York fort. Of course, the former Yankee’s fortune is estimated at his $185 million, so he could afford to wait.

About a year and a half after the sale, Jeter pulled the list “for the winter,” according to the realtor selling the house. The agent said at the time that it would return to the market shortly.
