Tom Brady takes Hollywood! NFL great’s Brentwood mansion almost ready

Must read

Tom Brady is rebranding himself as a movie mogul, and he’s doing so in one of Los Angeles‘ most exclusive neighborhoods.

The documentary film producer and future Hall of Famer is currently building a home in Hollywood-adjacent Brentwood – and photos of the 14,000-square-foot palace have been obtained by 

Much of the property remains a work in progress, including the rear garden and outdoor pool. The home does make good use of the famous Southern California sun with an array of solar panels and a glass atrium. 

The 46-year-old divorced father of three began construction in 2020 when he was launching his studio, 199 Productions, which takes its name from Brady’s place in the 2000 NFL Draft. Since then, the company has made three films, all of which center on a former New England Patriots quarterback: ’80 For Brady,’ ‘Man in the Arena,’ and ‘The Tuck Rule.’

Brady is not new to Brentwood. In 2008, he and his now-former wife Gisele Bündchen paid a reported $11.75 million for land, which was used to build a mansion they later sold to rapper Dr. Dre for a reported $40 million.

The neighborhood went from famous to infamous in 1994, when legendary Buffalo Bills running back OJ Simpson was accused of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. Since then, Simpson’s nearby former mansion has been demolished and in April, he passed away at 76 in Las Vegas.

The Brentwood mansion is just one of Brady’s current construction projects.  

As he prepares to launch another career as an in-game commentator for Fox Sports’ NFL coverage, Brady is also completing a mansion on Miami’s ‘Billionaire Bunker.’

As seen in aerial photos published in April from above Indian Creek, a manmade barrier island in Miami-Dade County, Brady’s new $17 million mansion boasts an enviable garden, where a variety of vegetables and flowers appear to be growing across eight congruent rectangular plots. Other Indian Creek residents include Jeff Bezos and Julio Iglesias as well as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.

It remains unclear if Brady did the honors himself or if the retired NFL star enlisted some area gardeners to handle the heavy lifting.

Of course, the Michigan alum is no stranger to healthy eating. Through his brand, TB12, Brady has promoted a mostly plant-based diet that includes a number of anti-inflammatory foods.

According to Brady, the diet is ‘commonsensical.’

He eats meat, although ‘not that much,’ he told his TB12 website.

‘If anything, I subscribe to balance,’ he said.

Brady and ex-wife Gisele Bündchen bought the home together four years ago and the property is finally close to completion – nearly a year after published exclusive photos of the ongoing construction.

In the time since, Brady’s Indian Creek Island home has changed quite a bit, with various amenities being added to the massive home.

New photos show that Brady is having a private boat dock constructed on the water, not far from his home.

Additionally, the seven-time Super Bowl winner has put a pickleball court in place, with basketball hoops on both sides as well. previously revealed that the quarterback, reportedly worth over $500 million, didn’t put anything towards the purchase of the property, but chose to take out a mortgage for the full amount plus the option to borrow a further $17million.

When he and Bündchen split in October 2022, Brady took on the building’s renovations while Bündchen moved on to buy her own property across the waterway.

Before the split, Bündchen had paid $1.3 million for a three-bed waterfront home in Surfside, which she’s had remodeled, according to building records.

The 43-year-old then splashed out $11.5million on a five-bed, 6,600-square-foot property a few doors down from the smaller home and opposite her former husband’s home.

Following a legendary playing career in the NFL, Brady hung up his cleats – for a second and final time – in February 2023.

But he’ll be returning to the limelight soon as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports.

He signed a reported 10-year, $375 million contract with the network and is set to start calling games this fall.

Even at the age of 46, Brady is still in tremendous physical shape. In March, he ran a faster 40-yard dash time then when he was just 22.

In a video shared on social media, Brady is seen explaining how he ran the 40-yard dash in 5.28 seconds at the NFL Combine, a poor score before he was drafted in the sixth round.

Brady had two friends timing him on the run – one recorded him at 5.18 and another stopped the clock on 5.12.
