Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr., popularly known as Tom Brady, is an American NFL quarterback who plays for the New England Patriots. A four-time Super Bowl MVP (2017), Brady is considered one of the greatest quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen. His football successes as well as his marriage to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen have made him a popular and celebrated figure not only in America but worldwide. His enviable career statistics are synonymous with his awards. Brady’s successes on and off the field have earned him a combined net worth of an estimated $180 million. And one of the ways Brady spends his millions is to build his own fortune from the ground up. Here is a look at the quarterback’s houses and his career statistics.
Tom Brady House
Brady and wife Bundchen as well as its three-headed brood live in a suitable, specially built mansion in Brookline, Massachusetts, Boston. The family moved here in 2015, just one year after selling their other custom home in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California, to rapper Dr. Dre for $40 million, $10 million less than the $50 million sale price. The couple reportedly spent approximately $40 million to build the house.
To tell you how this power couple like to live, here is a detailed look at their past and present home in Boston.
Tom Brady’s Former Los Angeles Mansion
In 2009, just when Brady had just married Bundchen, the couple lived in a rented apartment in the Brentwood district of California. Soon they discovered an undeveloped piece of land in the neighborhood and decided to buy it. Three years later, in 2012, the couple had built a massive 14,317-square-meter eco-villa on the 4-hectare plot they purchased. They enlisted the services of Hollywood ace architect Richard Landry and interior designer Joan Behnke to make their dream home a reality.
In 2013, the couple opened the doors of their eco-villa to Architectural Digest, and although it was spacious, the interior was simple and warm. Apart from the fact that they wanted a place big enough to accommodate their large family (in addition to the three children, Brady and Bundchen have a total of 8 sisters), another reason why the couple preferred to have their house custom built was that they wanted to live “green” (TIP: Bundchen is a UN ambassador for the environmental program). To mitigate the negative impact of their lives on the environment, the couple used recycled materials when building their house.
The house is also powered by two photovoltaic solar panels – now you know why it is called eco-villa. Dr. Dre is now the happy owner, who is happy about all these environmentally friendly features. The house also includes a water ditch stocked with koi and a henhouse. Brady and Bundchen, they must be such minimalists.
The 14,000 square foot building has 6 bedrooms, a fully equipped gym with custom made wrought iron monkey bars, an outdoor kitchen, an infinity pool with hut, and a pond with waterfall on the property.

While many speculated that Brady and his family would settle in prominent Los Angeles forever, especially after building a $40 million dream villa, the couple left us in the dark when they chose Boston instead. According to reports, the Patriots’ quarterback and his family may never have to leave Boston again, even after Brady’s imminent retirement. And although the couple has not revealed the reason for this surprising choice, we bet that it was a rational decision. Of course, it has to be, you don’t invest money and energy to build a dream house somewhere, only to sell it and move to another place in just one year.
For their new home in Boston, the couple decided to build on a 5.2-acre plot of land that they had purchased for $4.5 million in 2013. Again, they chose Richard Landry for architectural honors.
Unfortunately, there are no interior photos of the new house because the couple has not yet opened its doors to public cameras.
However, information from credible sources shows that the house, which is located near the very exclusive Brookline Country Club, measures over 14,000 square feet and includes five bedrooms with a master suite with his and her closet, four bathrooms, a gym, a library with balcony, a motor court, a wine cellar, a kitchen with pantry and a sunroom. The garage area has staff quarters and a children’s room, while the pool is equipped with a banya shelf.
Before moving to the Brentwood Villa, Brady lived in a $9.2 million Boston apartment that he later sold.
In October 2013, Brady purchased a $14 million, 14,300 square foot condo in One Madison in Manhattan, New York. According to sources, he could exchange it for a larger 5,000 square foot apartment, a more private one at 70 Vestry Street in Tribeca. The 14-story apartment building, designed by Robert A.M. Stern, is scheduled for completion in 2018.
