Gisele Bundchen, supermodel and sometimes actress, and her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, have put their mega-estate in Brentwood on the market at $50 million.
The country French chateau is reached by a winding driveway that ends at a cobblestone motor court. Adding to the old world ambience created by architect Richard Landry is a moat-like water feature that meanders alongside the mansion.
The four acres of grounds contain waterfalls, ponds, an infinity pool, lawns, gardens and pathways.
The limestone-clad house incorporates reclaimed ceiling beams, antique doors and marble fireplace surrounds. There are seven fireplaces.
The 13,890 square feet of living space includes a center hall, a den, a library/study, a gym, a sauna, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Bundchen, 33, was on the series “Gisele & the Green Team” (2010-11) and has appeared frequently as herself on talk shows.
Brady, 36, has been in five Super Bowls where the Patriots notched three wins. He has won multiple most valuable player awards for the National Football League and the Super Bowl since he joined the Patriots in 2000.
The couple married in 2009. Brady had bought the property the year before for $11.75 million and spent about four years developing it.
Stephen Shapiro and Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency are the listing agents.
