Greenwood Lake, New York, United States
Retired professional baseball shortstop Derek Jeter has reduced his historic Greenwood Lake retreat to $6.5 million. Jeter had previously tried to sell the property in 2018 & 2019 for $14.75 million. Sitting on 4 acres with 700-feet of shoreline, the property includes a historic structure known as Tiedemann Castle. The storied estate had been at one point the childhood home of Jeter’s grandfather, William ‘Sonny’ Connors. It was built in the early 1900s by Rudolph H.E. Gudewill for his wife Fanny. Following Gudewill’s death in 1946, the castle was sold to John and Julia Tiedemann, who adopted William ‘Sonny’ Connors in the 1950s. It’s reported that Jeter purchased the estate in 2003 for $425,000 before embarking on an extensive renovation of the historic property. Today, Tiedemann Castle offers over 12,500 square feet of space with 6 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, turrets, a widow’s walk and views over Greenwood Lake. The property spans 4 acres and is made up of two parcels, including a main house, guest house, pool house and boat house. The property also includes extensive gardens, a lagoon and infinity edge swimming pool with massive rock waterfall.
