From New York City to Coral Gables, Derek Jeter isn’t taking up permanent residence anywhere less than magnificent. The baseball legend just took a swing and hit a home run with a plot of land in Coral Gables.
Located in the prestigious Gables Estates, Jeter recently purchased the largest two-acre waterfront lot in the private-gated community. According to Realtor.com, the property initially hit the market for $17,999,500 million, and Jeter was able to punch down to a final $16.6 million.
Offering a breathtaking view of water and greenery, the lot was purchased with a few minor upgrades, including a completed seawall and docks that can hold up to two mega-yachts and other sea vessels. Architect Cesar Molina has created plans for the new 20,000-square-foot custom home. You can see designs of the proposed mansion via Realtor.com.
