The New York Post has an article and slideshow on the new waterfront home Derek Jeter is having built in Tampa. The 31,000-square-foot space in the Davis Islands community "will boast seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, two three-car garages, an entertainment room, a billiard room and a memorabilia room."
Of course, there's controversy! Jeter also wants to construct a 6-foot fence around the property. Tampa ordinances limit the height of the fence to 3 feet. But Jeter wants permission for a 3-foot masonry structure topped by a 3-foot-high wrought-iron fence.
By the way, as the Post notes: "Jeter's house will be Tampa's biggest -- and twice the size of the Tampa home owned by the Boss, George Steinbrenner."
