From the NY Daily News:
Dream job, dream wife – and now Tom Brady is getting his dream house.
The three-time Super Bowl- winning quarterback and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, are building a sprawling California home – nearly 22,000 square feet in all, from wine cellar to weight room.
The 3.75-acre Brentwood lot, just down the street from the home of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, was abuzz with construction workers whipping the eight-bedroom palace into shape.
Other amenities include a six-car garage, a covered bridge connecting two parts of the house, a nursery for 5-month-old son Benjamin and a lagoon-shaped pool – with spa. There’s a cardio room and a weight room to keep both spouses in shape for their respective careers, and an elevator to make getting around the enormous two-story home a little easier.
The total cost of the Mediterranean-style mansion could run to about $20 million.
The New England All-Pro and his Brazilian-born wife can cover the tab. Brady is in the last season of a six-year, $60 million contract, and Gisele catwalked her way to a reported $25 million last year.
The couple paid more than $11 million for the lot. It’s unclear when the quarterback and the supermodel will move in.
