Former Yankees captain Derek Jeter has sold his home on Greenwood Lake.

The $5.1 million sale closed Wednesday, less than two months after it hit the market with an asking price of $6.3 million, confirmed listing agent Diane Mitchell of Wright Bros Real Estate Inc. The 24-room estate at 14 Lake Shore Road was previously on the market for nearly $15 million.

The estate just north of the New Jersey state line was originally built in 1903 by New York doctor Rudolph Gudewill as a retreat for his wife. Jeter’s grandfather William Connors’ adoptive parents, John and Julia Tiedemann, purchased the estate in 1952. By the turn of the century, it had fallen into disrepair.

Jeter transformed the estate into a four-acre compound with a renovated main house, guest house, pool house and boathouse. The estate now features an infinity pool, a lagoon and 700 feet of manicured lakefront.

The home was first listed by Jeter six years ago for $14.75 million. The price dropped to $12.75 in 2021. After a failed auction, it was relisted earlier this year for $6.3 million by Mitchell, who brokered the deal with agent Elena Bertussi-Bachman of Howard Hanna Rand Realty.

Jeter grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but was born in Pequannock at Chilton Memorial Hospital. For a time thereafter he lived in North Arlington.

Jeter took over ownership of Greenwood Lake from the Tiedemann family trust in the early 2000s, after which he was the starting shortstop for the New York Yankees.

Jeter was inducted into the Hall of Fame on the first ballot and spent his entire career with the Yankees. He retired from baseball in 2014. He was co-owner and CEO of the Miami Marlins from September 2017 to February 2022.
