Derek Jeter Finally Finds A Home High Above Miami

After months of courting then buying the Miami Marlins, Derek Jeter has found a home in Miami.

Public records show Jeter, 43, the retired New York Yankees superstar slugger who spearheaded the purchase of the Marlins for $1.2 billion, has moved into a 19th floor apartment in the brand spanking new Grove at Grand Bay, a two-tower complex in Coconut Grove with views on Dinner Key on one side and downtown Miami on the other.

A well-placed source in the north building, 2669 South Bayshore Drive, confirmed Jeter moved in November 1 with his model wife and their 3-month-old child and is currently renting the crib.

“My understanding is that he is renting with an option to buy,” the source said. “We see him in here pretty often with (wife) Hannah. I don’t think he’s decided yet if he’s buying.”

Indeed Jeter’s 5,200-square-foot palace in the sky, with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, is still listed for sale for $6.5 million, according to MLS listings. It’s been on the market for nearly 10 months.
