The late George Steinbrenner’s 13,480-square-foot gated mansion in Tampa, Florida, was listed for sale Tuesday for $5.75 million.
Steinbrenner, who owned the New York Yankees baseball team for nearly four decades, and his wife, Joan, bought the two-story house for $3.8 million in 2000.
They undertook a major expansion and rebuild of the home in 2001, and only a few parts of the original house remain, according to the listing.
Steinbrenner, known as “The Boss,” died nine years ago at 80, and his widow continued to live in the house on South Frankland Road until her death on Dec. 14, 2018 at 83.
The house, which was built in 1958 and overlooks the Palma Ceia Golf Course,
is quite large, with seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, two partial bathrooms, three utility rooms and two elevators. It sits on a 0.94-acre lot.
Architectural details include columns, crown moldings, ceiling medallions, hardwood floors, wood paneling, built-in cabinets and bookcases, and gold bathroom fixtures.
The entrance features a two-story grand hall,with a staircase and black-and-white checkerboard tile that is flanked by the formal living room and dining room. Those rooms flow into a large rec room/bar, a family room/kitchen, library, office and powder room.
There are two master suites, one on each floor. The upstairs suite is equipped with a kitchenette, an expansive bathroom and two large walk-in closets with a variety of hanging and storage options.
The entire west side of the home looks out to a swimming pool with a vine-covered trellis, gardens and the golf course.
The south end of the house has a media room from which one can enter a large one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, living room and dining room.

Steinbrenner, a shipping industry mogul, purchased the then-struggling Yankees franchise in 1973 for $8.7 million. Over his decades in control of the Major League Baseball’s marquee franchise, the team won seven World Series championships. The team is now controlled by Steinbrenner’s two sons.
