Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen Building $20M Mega Mansion In LA

Tom Brady's Mansion

Tom Brady has not won a playoff game since beating the Chargers in the AFC Championship in January 2007. Since then, he has suffered three memorable defeats at the hands of the Giants, Ravens, and most recently…the Jets. ¬†If you’re living like Tom and wife Gisele Bundchen, all that doesn’t really matter. Why?

Well, you may remember when Gisele and Brady purchased a blank plot of land (3.75 acres) for $11 million in a very upscale neighborhood of Los Angeles. Now, their mega-mansion, some 22,000 square feet, is beginning to take shape and could be worth up to $20 million.

The eight-bedroom pad sits in Brentwood, home to celebs like Arnold Schwarzenegger¬†and Heidi Klum. The home “boasts a lift, lagoon-shaped pool, wine cellar, parking for six cars, weights room and a covered bridge connecting two buildings.” Wow. I bet I could probably move into the home and live their for a few months before anyone even noticed me.

Worried that Tom won’t make his mortgage payments? Don’t be. He’s the highest paid player in the NFL at $19 million per (and he should be), while Gisele reeled in $25 million last year. I think they’ll be OK.

  1. Building mansions, makes boatloads of money, presumably for buying boats. Tom Brady is the new Derek Jeter.

    But wouldn’t it be fun to actually sneak in their to live and see how long it took for someone to notice? Fun social experiment.

  2. I really don’t think they’d notice, at least until they have their home security system in place, haha.
