New York Yankees icon Derek Jeter has listed his upstate New York castle for sale, after owning the property for 15 years.

The former Yankees shortstop, and now co-owner and chief executive of the Miami Marlins, listed the Greenwood Lake mansion this week, which comes complete with a six-foot-high wall and turrets, according to the Times Herald-Record of Middletown. The four-acre property, which sits 50 miles northwest of New York City, was listed for $14.75 million.

And as a castle, it is built for a big family: six bedrooms, a dozen bathrooms, five kitchens, including one outdoor, an infinity pool overlooking Greenwood Lake and a replica of the Statue of Liberty.

The property, which Jeter bought 15 years ago, has held significance to his family for decades. Built in 1903 by a New York doctor, it was bought by the Tiedemann family in 1952. Jeter’s grandfather, William “Sonny” Connors, was adopted by the family and lived in the castle growing up, according to a news report.
