For Rent: Tom Brady’s Back Bay Penthouse

A posh penthouse in Boston’s swank Back Bay ’hood formerly owned, and until recently occupied, by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his Brazilian supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, has come up for lease at a rate of $35,000 per month.

Property records show the professional pigskin tosser purchased the entire building in May 2006, renovated it, sold off the lower three units and retained the triplex penthouse for himself. The Beacon Street townhouse topper was sold by the Brady-Bundchens in mid-2012 for $9.2 million, and then quickly sold again six months later for $9.271 million to a mysterious corporate entity that shows up on deeds and docs we peeped at as the owner of the other three units in the building.

Though the Brady-Bundchens have not owned the penthouse for more than two years, it was brought to this property gossip’s attention by an eagle-eyed tipster we’ll call Beau Stone that Bundchen posted photos over the summer to her Instagram account in which the family is seen playing videogames in what is quite clearly the penthouse’s family room.

The above-mentioned pictorial evidence suggests — but may not exactly prove — that the uncommonly comely couple leased the penthouse or otherwise remained in residence while they oversaw construction on their approximately 14,000-square-foot, custom-designed manse on five acres in the affluent Chestnut Hill area, about six miles west of downtown Boston. Local reports suggest the family decamped the Back Bay penthouse for their not quite completed new mansion in mid-September.

Whatever the case, marketing materials show the three-floor penthouse spans 5,311-square-feet with three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. There are five fireplaces, a media room, extensive walk-in closets — it was the home of an international supermodel, after all — five deeded parking spaces, and a landscaped roof deck with unobstructed views across the Charles River to the Boston skyline.

The Brady-Bundchens were the king and queen of the global property gossip columns in the spring when they sold their nearly new, custom-built faux-chateau in an exclusive guard-gated community in L.A.’s Brentwood for $40 million to hip-hop superstar turned high-end headphones mogul Dr. Dre.
