Here’s something for us regular people to drool over: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady‘s luxury mansion in the LA’s ritzy Brentwood district, $20 Million LA Mansion with Moat.
Built on land bought by the three-time Super Bowl winner and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, the finished mansion consists of eight bedrooms, a six-car garage, an elevator, child’s nursery, a lagoon-shaped swimming pool, wine cellar, spa, training room and (wait for it) a butler’s room. The 22,000 square foot property consists of two separate wings, connected together with an indoor bridge. The most talked about aspect of the mansion is the moat that surrounds parts of the main building – presumably to grant the young couple some privacy in their palatial estate.
While the land was acquired for $11 million in 2008, the finished mansion cost some $20 million to complete. Now would be a good time to remind our readers that that Tom Brady and Brazilian born Gisele Bündchen have a combined net worth of nearly $90 million.
In addition to being world famous super-model Gisele is also an eco-activist and goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), and has come under considerable criticism from environmentalists for building such a huge home for such a small family.
To counter such criticisms Gisele had a number of environmentally friendly technologies incorporated into the property including solar panels, energy-saving lighting systems, rainwater harvesting systems, waste reduction and recycling programs, energy-efficient appliances and sustainable building materials – although the most effective environmentally friendly gesture would be for the young couple and their infant son to not live in a 22,000 square foot luxury estate with a moat.
Let’s hope Tom has better luck holding on to his luxury home than many of his predecessors.
