It feels like just yesterday that Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady put their personalized palace up for sale for a whopping $50 million. There were reportedly several offers on the estate, but apparently none was more enticing than the offer from Dr. Dre, who paid $10 million less than the original asking price, splashing out $40 million for the whole kit and caboodle, according to Business Insider.
The “Beats” CEO is scooping up a fairly new property: Tom and Gisele purchased the L.A. lot in 2008 and built the estate from the ground up. The enormous 18,298-square-foot home has five bedrooms and nine bathrooms and reflects the superstar couple’s personal style – and expensive taste. Some of the property’s unique features include a custom-designed gym, walls made of three types of Texas limestone, an oak paneled library and a pool lined with hand-poured glass tile. “The home was really built for the likes of royalty,” says Redfin real estate agent Eric Tan. According to the Redfin listing, the home was designed by Richard Landry.
Rumor has it that the couple offered the mansion fully furnished, but the doctor declined. While $40 million may seem like it would put most people in the poor house, it looks like it’s just a drop in the bucket for Dr. Dre, whose net worth comes to a total of $550 million, according to Forbes. Not surprisingly, this isn’t the only home the rap star owns. He also has three other properties in California; one property in L.A., another home in Woodland Hills and a third home in Malibu.
If you were Dr. Dre, would you keep the furniture left behind by Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady?
