Derek Jeter has put a $2 million discount on his luxe Midtown bachelor pad. The New York Post reports the price on Jeter's 88th floor penthouse atop the Trump Towers at UN Plaza is now $17.95 million, down from the $20 million he posted back in 2010. Jeter bought the apartment directly from Donald Trump for $12.72 million in 2001.
The 5,425 square-foot 88th floor penthouse "has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, chef's eat in kitchen, dining room, media/den and living room, with a fireplace," according to the original listing, and features a 360 degree view of Manhattan with views of "the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, Central Park, and all the way out to the Atlantic Ocean."
The Post drools:
The ladies’ man’s lair has ultra-suede wallpaper covering the 16-foot-high walls. There’s a pool table, a poker table that seats eight, a dining-room table with room for 14, and even an old-school bar tabletop Pac-Man game.
Jeter's downsizing to a smaller Manhattan apartment after splitting with longtime girlfriend Minka Kelly. He also recently completed construction on his $7.7 million waterfront mansion in Tampa, Florida.
