Hip-hop artist and headphone mogul Dr. Dre appreciates the architecture of Patriots super quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen’s mega-mansion in L.A., which is listed for $50 million. The furniture? Not so much.
According to TMZ, Brady is close to selling the 18,700-square-foot mansion to Dre. The house was offered fully furnished. Dre, whose real name is Andre Romelle Young, is buying the house but passing on the decor. The Brady/Bundchen compound is only slightly broken-in. They built from the ground-up after buying the land in 2008 and completed construction in five years.
According to TMZ, there were “multiple interested parties ready to put offers on the house,” but Dre was the first to come in with a respectable offer. The deal is still reportedly in the works, but near completion.
What will Dre, who is worth a reported $550 million, according to Forbes, be getting for his dollar? Architectural Digest reported that the 3.6-acre property features an infinity pool, waterfall, and a professional home gym, of course. Mario Testino’s muse needs to stay in shape. The luxe home in the gated Brentwood Country Estates is eco-friendly and is comprised of two estates, which include eight bedrooms, a six-car garage a moat. No word if there are alligators or sharks residing in that moat.
In case you’re worried, the super couple will not be estate-less for long. Their next home in Brookline will include five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a library with a balcony, and a wine cellar, so the bubbly will be perfectly chilled when neighbor Bob Kraft stops by for a visit, perhaps?Christopher Muther can be reached at email@example.com.
