Former New York Yankees pitcher Jeff Nelson has cut his price and hired a new agent to market his mansion in Jupiter.
Nelson now is asking $14 million for the 11,000-square-foot crib along the Intracoastal Waterway at Admirals Cove. Billy Nash of The Keyes Co. is the new listing agent of the 1.1-acre estate.
“It was listed last year at $19 million, which was overpriced,” Nash said Friday.
Zillow says it’s worth $8.9 million. The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser pegs the 2017 value at $7.3 million.
Nelson paid $3.49 million for the house in 1999, according to property records. The home was significantly renovated in 2009, Nash said.
Now 51, Nelson was a 6-foot-8 reliever who made one All-Star team and played for the Yankees from 1996 through 2000, a span when the team won four World Series.
“If I don’t sell the house, I might get hit in the back of the head with one of his 100 mph sliders,” Nash joked.
Nelson threw hard, but not quite that hard. He was known for a 90 mph cut slider.
Nash said his marketing campaign includes the cover of the March issue of DuPont Registry and an upcoming spot in The Wall Street Journal’s Mansion section.
“That pool of buyers is very small, so you have to have a global approach as well as a local approach,” Nash said.
