Neither Chiang nor Phan immediately returned an email seeking comment on the sale.

As previously reported, Jeter recommitted to selling his home to “[downsize] to a Manhattan pied-a-terre apartment.” The completion of a 30,000-square-foot mansion in Tampa, Fla. plus his split with girlfriend Minka Kelly meant he didn’t need as big a home.

The home has 16-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, a billiards room, four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a button-operated lighting, audio, video and privacy shades system, according to the listing.
