2 minute read

Derek Jeter's longtime lake house near the New York-New Jersey state line, known locally as “the Castle” on Greenwood Lake, is back on the market at a dramatically reduced price.

The home, listed this week for $6.3 million, had previously been marketed for nearly $15 million. The property dates back to 1903 and has been associated with Jeter's family for more than 70 years.

The former New York Yankees shortstop took over the property from the Tiedemann family foundation in the early 2000s. The existing house was divided into apartments and was in a dilapidated state. The property was originally built in 1903 by a New York doctor, Rudolph Gudewill, for his wife. Jeter's grandfather, William Connors, lived on the property after his birth, adopted by John and Julia Tiedemann, who purchased the site in 1952.

A remodel under Jeter's ownership created the three-parcel property with a main house, a guest house, a pool house and a boathouse. The grounds feature an infinity pool, lavishly manicured gardens and a lagoon and are bordered by 6ft high stone walls. The approximately 4-acre site is located on the west side of Greenwood Lake and also includes 700 feet of lakefront.

The stone house at 14 Lake Shore Road in the town of Warwick, New York is characterized by two towers that give it the nickname “castle”. There are also two conference rooms, six bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and five kitchens. Four are inside. One is outdoors and has a wood-burning fireplace, according to an online listing from Wright Bros. Real Estate Inc. The annual property tax is about $75,000, the listing continued.

Jeter, a first-ballot Hall of Fame inductee who spent his entire career with the Yankees, retired from baseball in 2014. From September 2017 to February 2022, he was part owner and chief executive officer of the Miami Marlins and put the Greenwood Lake home on the market for $14.75 million before dropping the price to $12.75 in 2021.

Jeter, who grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan, was born in Pequannock at Chilton Memorial Hospital. Shortly thereafter he lived in North Arlington.

Locals said Jeter's parents often visited the Greenwood Lake home but he was rarely seen in the area.
