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.)

NFL Rumors: Patriots may ask CB Joejuan Williams to play safety in 2020

NFL Rumors: Patriots may ask CB Joejuan Williams to play safety in 2020

If Joejuan Williams sees significant playing time in 2020, it may not be at his primary position.

The New England Patriots have asked the second-year cornerback to become more versatile on defense this season, posing Williams this challenge, per ESPN's Mike Reiss

"Can you be the jack-of-all-trades in the secondary?"

As Reiss wrote, that could mean Williams staying at cornerback, moving to safety or some combination of both.

Why move Williams around? The simple reason: New England is stacked at cornerback, with reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore leading a four-man rotation with Jason McCourty, J.C. Jackson and Jonathan Jones.

The Patriots also are deep at safety -- Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung are the experienced starters with veteran Adrian Phillips and rookie Kyle Dugger joining as newcomers -- but Williams may be able to carve out a hybrid role as a slot cornerback or roving safety.

New England's second-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt in 2019, the 6-foot-3, 212-pound cornerback could take a cue from McCourty, who spent three NFL seasons as a cornerback before successfully transitioning to safety during the 2012 season.

Williams contributed just one pass defensed in nine games played last season, though, so he if wants to see more action in 2020, he'll need to add more skills to his tool box.

Tom Brady takes shot at Charles Barkley after 'The Match'

Tom Brady takes shot at Charles Barkley after 'The Match'

Tom Brady engaged in plenty of trash-talking with his opponents Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods during "The Match" on Sunday. But they weren't the only ones going back-and-forth with the six-time Super Bowl champion.

NBA legend Charles Barkley was a commentator for the charity golf match and didn't hold back from letting Brady hear all about his lackluster performance through the first few holes. On the seventh hole, however, the ex-New England Patriots quarterback birdied a par-5 with what was unquestionably the best shot of the day to silence Barkley. 

The real mic drop from Brady came after the match, though, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB jabbed Barkley for his inability to win a championship during his NBA career.

Boom, roasted.

Of course, the trash-talking was all just good fun. And it provided phenomenal entertainment while those involved in "The Match" helped raise more than $20 million to go toward COVID-19 relief efforts.
