Just before his depressing Superbowl loss, the New England Patriots’ quarterback (and boyfriend to supermodel Giselle Bundchen) Tom Brady unloaded his 3,412-square-foot condominium. The condo, located on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, MA, sold for $5,285,000, earning him $1,160,000 more than what he paid for it in June of 2004. The 3-bedroom and 3.5 bathroom residence located in one of Boston’s swankier neighborhoods was originally rumored to have been purchased by Brady in order to be closer to his then girlfriend (and current mother to his baby) Bridget Moynahan.
A part of the Burrage Mansion, his former 10-room residence featured an impressive museum-quality lobby, a beautiful master bedroom suite with a dressing room and a large marble bath, a living room and dining room, a library/study, three fireplaces, elevator access to the elegant foyer, and all overlooking the Commonwealth Mall.
The historical and ornate Burrage Mansion, built in 1899 for philanthropist, attorney, and entrepreneurial tycoon Albert Burrage, was designed to resemble a Gothic French chateau. The structure was converted into a physician’s offices in 1948 and was only converted into luxury condominiums about 5 years ago. Fortunately, the Boston Landmarks Commission required that the developers maintain and preserve the grand entrance hall, stair well, and second floor landing.
Although it is yet to be confirmed, Brady has apparently moved into the penthouse of a Beacon Street building that he had a hand in developing.
