Derek Jeter’s Greenwood Lake ‘castle’ sold for a third of original asking price

Former Yankees captain Derek Jeter has sold his home on Greenwood Lake.

The $5.1 million sale closed on Wednesday, less than two months after hitting the market for a list price of $6.3 million, listing agent Diane Mitchell of Wright Bros Real Estate Inc. confirmed. The 24-room estate at 14 Lake Shore Road had previously been listed for nearly $15 million.

The property just north of the New Jersey state line was originally built up in 1903 by New York City doctor Rudolph Gudewill as a getaway for his wife. The adopted parents of Jeter’s grandfather William Connors, John and Julia Tiedemann, bought the estate in 1952. By the turn of the century, it had fallen into disrepair.

Jeter transformed the property into a four-acre compound with a renovated main house, guest house, pool house and boat house. The estate today holds an infinity pool, a lagoon and 700 feet of manicured lakefront.

The home was first put on the market by Jeter six years ago for $14.75 million. The price dropped to $12.75 in 2021. Following a failed auction, it was relisted earlier this year for $6.3 million by Mitchell, who brokered the deal with agent Elena Bertussi-Bachman of Howard Hanna Rand Realty.

Jeter grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but was born in Pequannock at Chilton Memorial Hospital. For a short time after, he lived in North Arlington.

Jeter took ownership of the Greenwood Lake property in the early 2000s from the Tiedemann family trust. Then, he was the starting shortstop for the New York Yankees.

    Hahaha, first again

    That castle house isn’t a money pit, it’s a money cavern. To each, his own but that place doesn’t even appeal to me as a novelty.

  3. Fast Eddie says:

    600K for an Army Barracks type of house. This neighborhood off of Valley Road in Clifton was where the Paterson garment people lived. It’s an odd area with houses that look like they were constructed on a military base. The price tag for this place is actually painful.


  4. Fast Eddie says:

    Another Clifton deal. Clifton is probably the most convenient town in the state. Any time I see kids sleeping in attics with no access, it irks me. I remember seeing a few houses during my search(es) years ago that had awkward sleeping areas and one house in particular had a bedroom up the stairs off the kitchen with NO windows. I felt like calling the fire department. It was a kid’s “bedroom” and it was bothersome to see.

    Look at this house in Carrollton Texas with a 600k ask. It’s a city north of Dallas. Very nice area

    Then there is this one. No takers at 29 million, no takers at 22 million etc.

    “Nixon said, ‘I am not a crook.’ Could Trump really say ‘I’m not a crook’ and have anyone believe him? Nobody would believe that, including his own followers. They know that he’s out to scam money for himself, and they don’t seem to mind.

    “Take the grifting around ‘stop the steal’, post-election, 2020-21. Led by Trump’s son in law [Jared Kushner], they knew they were going to do it before the election was even over. ‘We’re going to keep our fundraising operation intact.’ And they booked a quarter of a billion dollars in a couple of months. It was amazing. One of the biggest rip-offs ever.”

    On the page, Conason charts 75 years of rightwing rip-off merchants attacking liberals and making money. Beginning with the supposedly anti-communist crusade of the lawyer Roy Cohn in the mid-1950s, proceeding through the rise of the Moral Majority, the attempt to bring down Bill Clinton and the brief age of the Tea Party, he ends with Cohn’s protege, Trump, poised to retake power.

    To Conason, the key to the story is not how much money such grifters raise but where that money comes from: those grifters’ own supporters.

    As Conason spoke, a prominent rightwing figure was reporting to a Connecticut prison.

    “The media will tell you over and over again, ‘Steve Bannon is going to jail,’ or he’s fighting to stay out of jail. And it has to do with the fact he defied a subpoena from Congress [over the January 6 Capitol attack].

    “But he’s also facing state charges. And the state charges are very similar to the charges for which he was pardoned by President Trump. And what the media don’t tell you, and they should be telling you, is that three other people have gone to prison for those same charges already.

    “Bannon’s three co-conspirators in the We Build the Wall scam” – keeping donations supposed to support Trump’s border policies – “two of them pleaded guilty and apologized to the court and begged the court for mercy, because they admitted they ripped off millions of dollars.

    “Not from liberals. They didn’t own the liberals. They owned the conservatives. They stole this money from their own constituency. And Bannon, having promised that he would not take any money, did the same thing. [He has pleaded not guilty.] The only reason he didn’t go to prison when the other three did was because Trump pardoned him.

    “It signifies the level of impunity that has developed. It’s not just that their movement is riddled with this kind of scam and cynicism. It’s that you can get away with it.”

    It’s fair to say Conason’s seventh book seems well timed. With a laugh, he said: “People who haven’t called me for years from MSNBC are clamoring to have me on their shows.”

    Hey, can anyone tell me why O’Biden looked like a piece of cheddar cheese last night? And when did he defeat Putin and Medicare?

  13. LAX says:

    An attorney for former President Trump suggested the so-called “fake electors” scheme qualifies as an “official act,” which would prevent it from being prosecuted under the recent Supreme Court ruling on presidential immunity.

    Trump attorney Will Scharf told CNN Monday night that some acts alleged in the former president’s federal election subversion indictment do constitute private conduct but the effort to put forth slates of alternate electors in 2020 from key battleground states is not one of them.

  14. LAX says:

    A.J. Delgado, a former staffer on Trump’s 2016 campaign, shared bombshell texts alleging that the campaign “settled multiple” gender discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuits. The texts, reportedly between Delgado and former Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis, came to light in new filings Delgado made as part of her ongoing discrimination lawsuit.

    “Jenna, [between] us, do you know of anyone who complained of gender discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, or sexual harassment, in the 2020 campaign? Do you know if the 2020 campaign settled any lawsuits regarding such?” texts allegedly from Delgado ask. “Yes. Off record—Boris. The campaign settled multiple suits,” a text reply allegedly from Ellis reads. “Have your investigator subpoena Michael Glassner,” the texts advise, apparently referring to the Trump 2020 campaign strategist.

    That $580 is a 2 fam, absurd pricing for sure, but not surprising.
