The Yankees' Core Four did things as a unit on the baseball diamond, and it appears that trend is continuing well after their playing days are over. Not long after Hall of Famer Derek Jeter recently listed his jaw-dropping Tampa mansion — known to the locals as "St. Jetersburg" — for a casual $29 million, two other members of this legendary NY quartet are making moves of their own in the real estate game.
And though neither of those former teammates are reaching numbers quite as high as the price tag that Jeter slapped on his house, they're not looking to walk away without a solid return, either.
Fellow Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera is listing his home in Westchester County, NY, for just under $4 million (h/t Karen Croke of Rockland/Westchester Journal News). The nine-bed, eight-and-a-half-bath house features over 13,000 square feet of living area set on a 1.17-acre lot. Built in 2006, the long list of features covers everything from a state-of-the-art gym to a four-car garage. The description, courtesy of Compass, is as follows:
Once the home of a New York Yankee, this estate is a grand slam of exceptional style, expansive living spaces and resort-like grounds in the perfect Rye location. The home-run residence opens with formal living and dining rooms. A butler's pantry keeps refreshments close while the eat-in kitchen boasts major-league appliances and breakfast area. Head to the fan-favorite family room, huddle up at the parlor bar or plan your roster moves in the grand home office. Your all-star bedroom lineup includes an owner's suite and six secondary suites. Stay ready for the majors in the gym, or catch your favorite game in the theater. The rec room and game room deliver ample space for your team, and an attic space would make a cool clubhouse. Laundry and mudroom round out the bullpen. Lush 1.17-acre lot with an outstanding pool deck. Gated motor court and four-car garage provide parking for spectators and players alike. Tranquil cul-de-sac close to shopping centers, country clubs, and freeways.
The home is listed with Compass agent Heather Harrison. You can see more photos and information here.
Rivera's longtime teammate, Andy Pettitte, is also selling a house for a little under $4 million in the Westchester area... pretty eerie similarities there, eh? A touch under $4 million is a bit of an exaggeration, actually, as the former ace is listing the home for $3.5 million after purchasing it in 2007 for $3.98 million. But with a $75 million net worth, we don't think Pettitte will be too hard-pressed by the loss.
Presented by realtor Miriam Dunn, the six-bed, six-and-a-half bath home is a little ways away from Rivera's Rye home, instead located in Purchase, NY. The listing, courtesy of Realtor.com, is as follows:
