Grand Home Late New York Yankee Bob Turley Built on Marco Island, Florida, Lists for $16.5 Million

On the scenic shores of Marco Island, Florida, a magnificent waterfront estate once owned by the late New York Yankees pitcher, Bob Turley, now seeks a new owner. Priced at $16.5 million, this grand abode is a testament to luxury living and architectural grandeur, nestled in one of the island’s most coveted locales.

Christened the “Turley Mansion,” this Italian-inspired villa was constructed for the baseball legend in the 1980s, following his illustrious years in Major League Baseball (MLB). Since its inception, it has stood as a beacon of elegance and prestige on Marco Island, as detailed by Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, the estate’s listing agency.

“This property is truly a gem,” stated Cathy Rogers, a listing agent with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Marco Island office. Rogers, who introduced the mansion to the market, highlighted the estate’s unparalleled blend of historical allure, opulent design, and an enviable seaside position. With the mansion going up for sale, it represents a rare chance to acquire a piece of Marco Island’s history enveloped in luxury.

The Turley Mansion sprawls over nearly three acres along Robert’s Bay, boasting over 13,000 square feet of refined living space. The estate echoes the grandeur of a Venetian palazzo, with exquisite detailing, including a 25-foot hand-painted barrel ceiling in the great room, majestic columns, stone flooring, graceful archways, imported fountains, and multiple grand fireplaces. Each element has been meticulously curated to exude elegance and grandiosity.

Among its lavish interiors are a formal dining area, a gourmet kitchen complete with a temperature-controlled hidden wine cellar, and a library that opens to a full bar and lounge. The mansion also encompasses a family room, staff quarters, numerous terraces, and six regal bedrooms. The primary suite is a sanctuary of luxury with a Venetian plaster ceiling, dual bathrooms, walk-in closets, and a private balcony that offers serene morning views.

The estate’s exterior is equally impressive, offering a plethora of outdoor amenities. With 190 feet of bay frontage, the property includes a 100-foot dock, allowing for direct bay access. The tropically landscaped grounds house koi ponds, a screened pool with spa, an outdoor kitchen and barbecue area, and even a tennis court, ensuring endless entertainment and relaxation.

Currently held by a limited liability company, which acquired the mansion for $10 million in 2022, this property offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of baseball history wrapped in the splendor of Florida’s coastal luxury. The Previous owner, Bob Turley, famously known as “Bullet Bob,” had a celebrated MLB career, playing for teams like the St. Louis Browns (now the Baltimore Orioles) and the New York Yankees, before retiring after the 1963 season. His legacy, both on the field and through this stunning Marco Island residence, lives on.

The Turley Mansion’s mix of historical significance, architectural opulence, and its premier location makes it a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition on Marco Island, promising its future owners not just a home, but a landmark of luxury and legacy.
