NFL superstar Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen are putting down roots in Clearwater, Fla., with the pending purchase of a $7.5 million seaside smart home. It made sense that Brady would need place to hang his cleats in Florida now that he has joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after leaving the New England Patriots after 20 seasons.
Details are limited on the tech amenities for the 8,548-square-foot custom-built Brady smart home, which was constructed in 2015. But what we can glean from the home’s real estate listing are luxury amenities that include a Crestron home automation system, home theater, security video surveillance, motorized shades, and a state-of-the-art AV system that carries throughout the entire home.
According to the real estate listing from Smith & Associates Real Estate, the home is designed to maximize its prime location. The three-story modern-style home has five bedrooms, five en-suite bathrooms and three half bathrooms.
Other high-tech amenities include a central vacuum, an elevator, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, and a home office with its own second-floor utility room. On the non-tech side, the waterfront location is finished throughout in glass, stone, quartz and wood with a home gym off the master suite overlooking the water.
The lighting in the Brady smart home is spectacular, with color-changing lights throughout the home. The living room features are 180-foot vertical chandelier made from plastic and delicately molded fabric that descends from the second floor to first floor.
The Brady smart home custom kitchen includes a walk-in pantry and custom-designed breakfast bar with water views. Other living spaces include a formal living room, dining room, full wet- bar and billiard room with fireplace.
Additional special features include impact windows designed to withstand a Category 4 hurricane, custom closets throughout and expansive terraces. The private dock has full power with a 30,000-pound boat lift, in addition to a smaller boat lift for jet skis. This residence took over 5 years to complete, according to the listing.
According to the local Tampa NBC affiliate, Brady and Bündchen have been renting Derek Jeter’s former home on Davis Island while they were finding a suitable home.
