Midweek Mash Up: The Brady-Bündchens

The latest West Coast celebrity real estate scuttlebutt (via celeb gossip juggernaut TMZ) is that super-compensated supermodel Gisele Bündchen and prodigiously paid pigskin tosser Tom Brady have quietly spiraled their recently completed, custom-built mansion in L.A.’s Brentwood area on the open market with an super-sized asking price of $50 million.

While it’s somewhat unexpected it isn’t much of a surprise, perhaps, to those of us real estate watchers who remember that the comely couple recently had the Richard Landry-designed and Joan Behnke-decorated faux-French chateau profiled in the glossy pages of Architectural Digest (October, 2013). Because, of course, ehver-bahdee who knows a damn thing about celebrity real estate knows that that when a famous person’s private residence pops up in Architectural Digest it’s a pretty good bet the property soon pop up for sale. (We don’t make the rules, hunties, we just follow the patterns. Anyhoo….)

Digital marketing materials show the limestone-sheathed residence sits on close to four mostly flat and painstakingly landscaped acres and encompasses 13,980 square feet with five bedrooms and nine bathrooms. There’s a moat, a wood bridge, a motor court paved in reclaimed cobblestones, and an infinity pool befitting a five-star island resort.

Your Mama spoke on the telly with a real estate acquaintance of ours who has first-hand knowledge of the Brady-Bündchen mansion and s/he snitched that the guest house structure (mostly) houses a huge fitness facility and, as large as the house may be, there is not a dedicated staff bedroom or a screening room. We just about fell off our bar stool when we heard that, too, children. Who builds a gigantic house in Los Angeles and does not put in a screening room and then puts a $50 million price tag on it? Pleeze. Anyways…

Other homeowners in the guard-gated enclave include philandering former governator Arnold Schwarzenegger and supermodel turned reality television mogul Heidi Klum who, even though last fall she spent nearly $10 million on another, equally large red brick neo-Georgian mansion on a gated cul-de-sac in Bel Air, still owns a nearly 12,000 square foot Euro-villa across the road from the Brady-Bündchens.

So the stories go, the Brady-Bündchens plan to take their babies and settle in the upscale suburbs of Boston where they’re presently building another 14,000 square foot estate on five acres.
