After more than a year in the making, the House That Derek Jeter Built, the biggest home in the county, is finished. On Wednesday, Tampa’s building department issued a certificate of occupancy for the famed Yankee shortstop who calls Tampa his permanent home. The $7.7 million house dwarfs surrounding homes on Bahama Circle. Construction began on the 30,000-square-foot seven-bedroom, nine-bath mansion early last year. Jeter bought up the adjacent lots on which the home sits for $7.7 million in 2005 and 2006.
