A former pitcher for the New York Yankees and his wife re-listed their custom-built, waterfront house in Jupiter and reduced their asking price by almost $5 million.
Jeff Nelson and his wife, Sheri Quinn Nelson, are now asking $14 million for the seven-bedroom house they re-listed with Billy Nash, head of the Nash Group unit of The Keyes Company.
Nash told Mansion Global that the Nelsons want to sell their house in the Admirals Cove area of Jupiter and to move north to a new home in Jupiter Island.
The two-story house in Admirals Cove, built in 2009, has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms and 11,394 square feet of living space.
Among other amenities, the property has a swimming pool, spa and sauna, plus a bar, billiards room and gym. It also has a private dock big enough for a 160-foot-long yacht.
Nelson, 51, was a pitcher for the New York Yankees from 1996 to 2000 and again in 2003. He also played for the Seattle Mariners.
His wife, Sheri, bought the house in Admirals Cove with her former husband for $3.49 million in 1999 and retained ownership as part of their divorce settlement.
The Nelsons initially listed the one-acre property for sale about a year ago for $19.9 million. [Mansion Global] – Mike Seemuth
