Waterfront mansion of late Yankees pitcher Bob Turley heads to the auction block
In Marco Island, Fla., a grand estate once owned by Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Bob Turley will go to the highest bidder.
Originally built for the late New York Yankees ace in 1988, the home has shuffled on and off the market for the last few years, most recently listing for $7.2 million in January. The property will now be auctioned off with no reserve on Feb. 9.
The turnkey property, known as Greystone Manor, comprises four lots totaling about 2.6 acres overlooking Robert’s Bay. In addition to a 13,000-square-foot home, it holds a swimming pool and spa, screened patio, vegetable garden, gazebo and tennis court.
Through pillars and two iron gates, the house is fronted by a porte-cochere entry. Stone touches up the exterior, and copper tops the roof.
Stately living spaces full of antique chandeliers and marble floors fill the floor plan. There’s a library wrapped in cherry wood, a wet bar overlooking a koi pond and a grand salon with hand-painted barrel ceilings.
Barrel ceilings also top the master suite, which opens to a private terrace with views of the water. In total, there are six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms across two stories.
A landscaped backyard descends to 190 feet of water frontage, complete with 100-foot dock.
It’ll be sold on-site through Elite Auctions.
Turley, who died in 2013 at 82, led the Yankees to a pair of World Series titles in the 1950s. In addition to three All-Star appearances, the right-hander also won the American League Cy Young Award and the World Series most valuable player award in 1958.
