Inside Tom Brady's massive Brookline home, now on sale for nearly $40M

You've probably heard the news by now: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, have put their Brookline, Mass., home on the market.*

We'll avoid speculation about what it all means -- Are they moving out of town? Does this mean Brady's retirement is near? -- and instead focus on this question: What are they giving up?

First, the bare-bones details: Brady and Bundchen won approval to purchase the lot from Pine Manor College in 2013 and invested $4.5 million in the Brookline property in 2014, shortly after selling their Los Angeles mansion to Dr. Dre for $40 million.

Construction on the home finished in 2015, and the result was five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and nearly 10,000 feet of floor space (9,716 feet, to be exact). It sits on nearly five acres of prime real estate that backs up to the uber-exclusive Brookline Country Club (of which Brady and Bundchen finally became members in 2017) and is a 30-minute drive (without traffic) to Gillette Stadium.

Now, for the fun stuff. Like those of most celebrities, Brady and Bundchen's home is loaded with luxury amenities.

And a separate 2,400-square foot "barn-inspired" guest house that features -- you guessed it -- its own yoga studio. (Photo via Zillow.com.)

You can view more photos of the sprawling pad on Zillow.com, but if you've seen Brady's recent Facebook Watch documentary, "Tom Vs Time," chances are you've gotten a pretty good glimpse into where Brady and Bundchen have raised their children -- sons Jack and Benjamin and daughter Vivian -- for the past five years.

As to where the couple will relocate next? They've reportedly been browsing in near Greenwich, Conn., and Alpine, N.J. Given that Brady just earned a pay raise, we'd imagine they shouldn't have any trouble finding a new mansion that fits their needs.

*(While Zillow.com has updated its listing to note the home is not for sale on its site, the property is listed for sale on Realtor.com.)

Report: Pats' punishments for videotaping could include fines, draft picks

Report: Pats' punishments for videotaping could include fines, draft picks

While the investigation into the New England Patriots' illicit videotaping of the Cincinnati Bengals' sideline last weekend is ongoing, The Washington Post's Mark Maske is reporting that the punishment could be aligned in severity with similiar game-day violations committed by other NFL teams in recent years.

That means fines in the range of six figures and/or a reduced round value on a draft pick — or worse still, the loss of one altogether:

"The NFL is likely to penalize the New England Patriots for their admitted violation of league video policy last weekend and is contemplating disciplinary measures in line with those imposed on teams in recent seasons for infractions of game-day rules, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

That could mean a fine in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and potentially the loss or reduction in value of a draft choice, typically a lower-level pick."

CURRAN: Preventable controversy is the last thing Belichick needed>>>

Looking for something similar to what the Patriots were levied for Spygate? Maske points out that punishment was clearly an exception, not a guardrail:

The Patriots have admitted wrongdoing in last Sunday's incident in Cleveland, in which a credentialed Patriots video crew member was caught filming the Bengals' sideline during their game against the Browns. New England has said the camera crew was there to feature a scout as part of their "Do Your Job" video series.

Report: Julian Edelman, Ted Karras make trip with Patriots, Cowart out for Bengals game

Report: Julian Edelman, Ted Karras make trip with Patriots, Cowart out for Bengals game

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and center Ted Karras, who were each listed as questionable with injuries, made the trip to Cincinnati with the team Saturday but backup defensive tackle Byron Cowart was downgraded to out with a concussion, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Edelman, the team's leading receiver, has been battling shoulder and ankle injuries. Karras, the starting center, missed the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday with a knee injury. Both were limited in practice this week. 

The Patriots (10-3), coming off back-to-back losses to the Houston Texans and Chiefs, play the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday at 1 p.m.
