Real estate mavens Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen are reportedly adding to their residential property portfolio this month. According to TMZ, the couple is finishing up a bit of house-hunting in the Tampa Bay area with a purchase in Clearwater. If true, the couple’s newest acquisition would be a modern villa of 8,600 sq. ft. which was built in 2015 and listed most recently for $7.5 million.
The exterior of the incoming contemporary house riffs on high modern, Streamline and chalet styles, and boasts prominent rounded corners front and back.
Inside, the home evokes a luxurious sense of scale and avant-garde architectural forms very effectively by presenting an interesting and somewhat eerie foyer perspective: a floating staircase with a glassy balustrade, a glass floor panel, a metallic industrial flourish and, in the near distance, a small circular lounge crowned by a grandiose LED chandelier that hangs from a dome ceiling. Programmable colored lighting augments the feel of the place. As the common area progresses, a sculpted ceiling blossoms and a broad water-view clerestory emerge.
The rest of the home develops in kind, and packs in amenity after amenity along the way. A bar and games room, a home theater with reclining seats, a formal dining room—with another tray ceiling sprouting another stalactite-like chandelier, as well as a ponderous built-in window bench following the arc of the rotunda—a wine room and lounge, and a master suite with a rounded waterfront sleeping niche top the list.
Brady and Bündchen’s other residences include a mansion in Massachusetts which came up for sale in 2019. The mansion, which is currently off-market, was last priced at $33.9 million. The pair set up shop in Florida a few months ago following Brady’s $50 million deal with the Bucs. They took up residence at Derek Jeter’s Tampa home while looking for a home to call their own.
