House Porn: Bundchen-Brady edition
Yesterday it was Cameron Diaz’s NYC apartment. Click here for a refresher. Next: Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady House Porn. Or should we call it Mansion Porn? Estate Porn?
Yes, the Bundchen-Bradys, who prioritise privacy, opened up their home to Architectural Digest. Look, just because it’s not LIFE & STYLE doesn’t make it any less public. But this is what Celebrity is. The irrepressible need to be seen. They can’t help themselves. They’ll justify it 15 different ways but no matter what the rationale, there’s no other way to describe this than to say it’s SHOWING OFF. Period.
The Bundchen-Brady Brentwood manor took $20 million and 3 years to build. It’s 22,000 sq ft. There are 8 bedrooms. There’s a 6 car garage. And a f-cking MOAT! Look at it this beast!
According to Architectural Digest:
For Bündchen and Brady living well also means living responsibly. Bündchen is a global ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme, and the couple is acutely aware of issues related to the conservation of natural resources. One of their primary imperatives when building their home was to use as many recycled components as possible and to implement energy and water systems that would ameliorate the family’s impact on the land. In addition to composting, gray-water technology for irrigation, and environmentally friendly construction materials, the pair installed two substantial arrays of photovoltaic solar panels (one next to the garden, the other on the roof of the house) that would meet all of the property’s electricity needs. “From the beginning we asked everyone involved in the design and construction, ‘How can we make it as sustainable as possible?’” Bündchen says.
You know what’s really environmentally-friendly? Not needing that big of a house that you don’t even spend a lot of time in.
Anyway, theirs at least looks like a more usable kitchen than Cameron Diaz’s. Gisele and Tom seem to be more in line with the Gwyneth Paltrow aesthetic. Um, that bathroom is basically the size of my entire home. The “closet” is my favourite room. You know, as far as celebrity closets go, it’s actually not the most excessive. In fact, compared to Mariah Carey’s and even Carrie Bradshaw’s in Sex In The City the movie, it’s actually almost… modest. Almost.
