The house that Jeter built could soon be reduced to rubble.
City of Tampa records show that a commercial demolition permit has been filed for 58 Bahama Circle, the Davis Islands mansion that was once home to star athletes Derek Jeter and Tom Brady.
Jeter sold the home for $22.5 million last year, earning it the title of Tampa Bay’s most expensive home, according to Smith & Associates, the realty firm that handled the sale. Coming in at 21,796 square feet, it is also one of the largest homes in Tampa.
The 7-bedroom, 16-bathroom waterfront property sits on 1.25 acres with 345 feet of open bay. The inside is decked out with a wine cellar, a movie theater, a gym, an in-law suite, an au-pair wing, an air-conditioned six-car garage, a scullery and a full-home generator. There’s also 9,000 square feet of covered porches and balconies, a dock with two boat lifts, a heated spa and an 80-foot saltwater lap pool.
Built in 2011, Jeter and his family lived in the home for some time before relocating to South Florida. The already iconic house solidified its status as a local landmark in 2020 when Tom Brady began renting it from Jeter and moved in with his family.
The current owner of the home appears to be a trust run by a local lawyer. The deed lists David L. Koche as well as “Zebb.com Trust.”
Zebb.com is a cryptocurrency app that allows people to invest Indian rupees into Bitcoin. On its website it mentions affiliations with Zebpay, a major cryptocurrency exchange headquartered in Singapore.
Koche is a partner with the Tampa law firm of Barnett, Kirkwood, Long & Koche, P.A. He could not immediately be reached for comment.
