In 2005 and 2006, Jeter also purchased two adjacent lots in Tampa and in 2011, constructed the largest and most expensive house built in the area. Due to the size and stature of the estate, it has been dubbed the title of “St. Jetersburg” after the nearby city of St. Petersburg. The lavish estate was reportedly served as a rental home for NFL superstar Tom Brady and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen before being listed on the market in September of 2020 at $29 million.
