There’s a new king of this castle.

Derek Jeter finally found a buyer for his unique mansion in upstate New York after slashing the asking price by more than $8 million.

Originally listed for $14.75 million in 2018, the Greenwood Lake home is located less than 50 miles from New York City and sits on a four-acre property.

The unnamed new owner snagged up the nearly 9,000-square-foot medieval-looking abode, known as Tiedemann Castle, for a meager $6.3 million last week.

The “magical property” has “extensive lake views” and has been “lovingly restored beyond its original grandeur,” per Mansion Global, which was first to report the news.

In addition to the expansive main home, the estate features a guesthouse, a pool house and a boathouse.

Also found on the property is an infinity edge pool, a private lagoon, a stone waterfall and even a replica of the Statue of Liberty.

Despite featuring modern touches, the home still boasts plenty of character with wood paneling, beamed ceilings and iron chandeliers, as seen in photos taken by Stephen Dolinsky.

The former New York Yankees star, 49, purchased the home in 2003 for just $425,000 and dumped nearly $3 million into renovations. He reportedly had longtime ties to the property, as his grandfather William “Sonny” Conners was adopted by its former owners.

Jeter, who shares four children with wife Hannah Jeter, previously listed the home for auction in 2022 to no avail.

This is the second property that the Captain has let go of in the last couple of years amid his transition into a broadcasting career.

In May 2021, Derek sold his mansion in Tampa, Fla., for $22.5 million after nearly eight months on the market.

Despite originally listing it for $29 million, the former shortstop seemingly wanted to get the home off his hands, as he accepted a price cut of more than $6 million.

However, Derek still got a hefty payday, as he first purchased the home back in 2005 for just $2.3 million.

Prior to selling the massive 22,000-square-foot property, Derek leased it to then-couple Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen after the NFL star signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

However, Brady revealed in 2020 that they were forced to leave due to an invasion of privacy.

Features of the seven-bedroom, nine-bath Tampa home included a wine cellar, movie theater, professional gym, in-law suite, six-car garage, 80-foot saltwater lap pool and an expansive clubroom complete with a full bar.
