Derek Jeter Castle Going To AuctionPosted: November 21, 2022 | Source: www.curbed.com
The Derek Jeter Castle is going to auction. Built in the early 1900s on Greenwood Lake on the border of New York and New Jersey, the estate is actually two castles: the master castle with a connected tower and a guest castle. After the original owner died, John and Julia Tiedemann bought the castle where they lived with their 13 children including an adopted son, William Connors. Connors was later to become Derek Jeter’s maternal grandfather. The Tiedemanns sold the estate in 1996, but when it came back on the market in 2002, Jeter bought it and began a long and expensive restoration.
