Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s New $20 Million Home Not So Environmentally Friendly
Gisele Bundchen and husband Tom Brady are building a new home, I’m sorry a 20,000 foot mansion with a covered bridge, six-car garage, elevator, butler’s room, wine bar and gallery, and lagoon shaped swimming pool, in Los Angeles. Baby Benjamin is going to have some sick parties in there, I just hope we are tight by then. For those guys who
bought Stetson cologne or the ladies who invested
in a pair of Gisele’s sandals I think you
deserve a swim in the pool at least.
The house looks down on Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s place and is estimated at $20 million plus $11 million for the 3.75 acre property. Maybe the taxes on that thing will give California a much needed boost.
While it sure is pretty, The Boston Herald points out some poor modeling by the U.N. environmental ambassador. “How big a space do two people need?” the paper quotes Philip Dowds, a Massachusetts Sierra Club official and professional architect. “A 20,000 square-foot house – the resources that it takes to put it together and the land that it needs, this just can’t happen anymore.” The paper also points out that the two-story-house’s elevator contradicts Gisele’s own advice to take the stairs. “In addition to exercising, you save the electric power of the elevators,” she says on giselebundchen.com.
