Brookline, welcome your newest residents Patriots QB Tom Brady and his wife and supermodel Gisele Bundchen. The couple has put an 11-room gated antique mansion located off of Route 9 in Brookline under agreement with plans of a March closing date.
The new digs, a renovated circa-1850 home on three acres of the old Gardner estate, has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, seven fireplaces (Santa will have his pick!), a luxury kitchen, multiple porches, a deck, and a 40-by-20 Gunite pool. The seller purchased the property for $1.9 million and spent a large sum renovating the home. The couple were also thrilled that the location of the home is close to the school where their newborn son Benjamin will eventually attend school.
Gisele recently sold her Manhattan townhouse for a whopping $13.5 million…good news for the couple since the 2010 tax bill on the new Brookline home is $80,000.
Brady’s Back Bay penthouse remains on the market for sale at an asking price of $10.9M. The price per square foot is a little over $2,000 whereas comparable luxury Back Bay homes have been selling around $950-1,000 per square foot. My thoughts, and just an obvious observation – the pricing needs to come down.
