Permits filed to tear down Derek Jeter's former Tampa home

The home of two of Tampa's biggest champs will soon see the wrecking ball.

In May of 2021,  Yankees legend Derek Jeter sold his giant compound on Davis Islands for $22.5 million—now it appears it will be torn down.

As first reported by Tampa Tomorrow, demolition permits were recently filed with the City of Tampa to level the 22,796-square-foot home, which was purchased by a trust run by local lawyer David L. Koche.

Built in 2011, the Jeter compound takes up three lots, and is the largest waterfront property on Davis Islands. Featuring seven bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, the home also sports a wine cellar, an in-home movie theater, gym, an 80-foot lap pool, an outdoor kitchen, two boat lifts, a six-car air-conditioned garage, and more.

The home, which is located at 58 Bahama Cir., made headlines in 2020 after Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen moved in for the season. During that time, Brady complained about the lack of privacy at the property, specifically that boaters could just pull up to his backyard.

The couple has since moved to a nearby rental on Davis Islands.

As of now, there's no word on what exactly will replace the home.
