Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s Brookline Mansion Is on the Market
Want to live like the GOAT? Now's your chance, if you can round up $39.5 million.
If you want to live like Tom Brady, you’ll have to ditch sugar, drink somewhere around 25 glasses of water a day, and saddle up with the Patriots for some 19 years. But if winning six championships sounds a little out of range, there’s another option: Buy his house. Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s Brookline home is for sale, as of this morning. Liquidate all of your savings for this one, though—the celebrity couple’s Chestnut Hill digs are going for $39.5 million.
Almost as impressive as the price tag is the home’s 12,112 square feet of custom-designed luxury. Richard Landry of LA-based Landry Design Group thought up the mid-century modern and sun-filled structure, which was built from the ground up in 2015. More than five acres surround the five-bedroom manse, which lies next to the ninth hole of the Chestnut Hill Country Club.
But now, just four years after settling into their bespoke home, Brady and Bundchen are house-hunting in other ‘burbs. The New York Post reports that they’re looking at places in Greenwich, Connecticut, and Alpine, New Jersey. This city-to-suburb trend tracks with their previous move, from a Back Bay condo to their sprawling Brookline estate.
Though Brady is running with the Pats for at least another two years, it seems he already has one cleat out the proverbial door. The family is thinking ahead to college visits and potential schools in Connecticut and NYC, reports Page Six.
Though they already own a sweet spot in Tribeca (on the 12th floor, of course), they may be looking to expand and scoot to the outskirts once again—they’ll need somewhere to plant a new organic garden plot, after all. Plus, if the kids do end up attending college in New York, they’ll likely thank a little distance from home. Isn’t it so embarrassing when your supermodel mom and quarterback dad show up at your dorm?
Only time will tell what the new Brady-Bundchen compound will bring. But whether you’re a die-hard football fan or GOAT is nothing to you but an animal with creepy eyes, we can all agree that the power couple is breaking our collective Boston heart by leaving Brookline for decidedly non-Massachusetts lands. I wonder if their new place will be as giant—sorry—massive, as their Boston mansion.
Though the listing has been pulled from Zillow and now shows up as “off market” on the site, it’s still alive and well on other listing sites, such as Estately and Compass, and a marketing associate for the latter has said that the property does seem to be on the market. You can also find the details for the listing on the Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty website, as well as the contact information for listing agent Beth Dickerson, should you be ready to buy.
