Huge is an understatement when it comes to describing Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s 22,000-square-foot mansion in Brentwood, California. The custom designed estate, which began construction last year, is nearly complete. The eight-bedroom home will feature a lagoon-style pool for swimsuit model Bundchen and weight room for Patriot’s QB Brady. Hollywood’s highest earning couple will share the home with their two-year-old son, Benjamin.
The home, prepared by famed architect, Bing Hu, cost a reported $20 million, not including the $11.75 million the couple initially paid for the 3.6 acre plot. With Bundchen recently announcing she has be pegged as the face for two 2012 luxury lines, Givenchy and Ferragamo, the couple certainly has some extra dough to splurge on the new home.
Bundchen, a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environmental Program, has reportedly ensured the home is extremely eco-friendly. Certain green features to the home include energy-saving lighting, energy-efficient appliances, sustainable building materials and rainwater recovery systems. Through her work with the UN, Bundchen has helped launch safe-water initiatives.
The Brady bunch made news in Boston recently when they put their 10.5 million dollar Back Bay penthouse up for sale. It’s still available, and all interested parties can check out pictures on the Sotheby’s real estate site.
