The massive property has been nicknamed "St. Jetersburg" by locals – and for good reason.

Being the most expensive and largest property on the islands, it features seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, eight half-baths, almost 9,000 square feet of outdoor space and sits on a 1.25 acres property overlooking Hillsborough Bay.

With all the opulence, the rental agent jokingly said that the mansion won't be suitable for raising a family.

"You would think with a house that's this large, you'd just get lost in it," said the broker. "But with the mixed scale of the rooms, it's not like everything is so formal and segregated. It's definitely not a casual house, but it's very livable."

When Jeter became co-owner and CEP of the Marlins in 2017, the couple moved into a 19th-floor condo at the Grove at Grand Bay.

According to the New York Times, the property has been renovated to make it more secluded and to keep tourists away.

Surrounding the property is a six-foot-high wall referred to by local residents as "The Great Wall of Jeter."

The mansion might be the most expensive in the area, but Gay is sure that it might actually exceed the asking price.

"Tampa isn't an area with a large number of trophy properties but when they do become available, there's a lot of interest," he told the New York Times.
