Future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady is moving forward with plans for his waterfront mansion in South Florida, across the waterway from a home owned by his ex-wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
Brady’s estate, in the exclusive and gated Indian Creek Village, will include a separate gym (obviously), study, a waterfront pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, gardens and a tree-lined driveway leading up to a motor court with a multi-car garage, according to a set of renderings obtained by The Real Deal. Drawings also show the primary and guest suites include their own terraces.
Brady, the seven-time Super Bowl champion who spent most of his NFL career with the New England Patriots, bought the 2-acre lot at 26 Indian Creek Island Road almost three years ago with Bündchen. They acquired the property through an LLC tied to Jeff Soffer’s Fontainebleau Development. (Soffer and Brady are good friends, and Soffer lives next door at 27 Indian Creek Island Road.)
This year in June, the LLC secured a $35 million construction loan for the home from JPMorgan Chase.
Fontainebleau Construction filed two notices of commencement, marking the beginning of construction, in 2021 for the lot. The filings call for a two-story home with a security building, gym, cabana, pool and sport court.
Indian Creek has long been home to uber wealthy business people and celebrities, but a new group of them is moving in. In June, billionaire Jeff Bezos paid $68 million for a teardown on the island. DJ and producer David Guetta is also in contract to buy the waterfront spec estate at 37 Indian Creek Island Drive that was asking $69 million.
Brady’s ex-wife, Bündchen, was recently spotted on the construction site that is her waterfront home nearby at 1400 Biscaya Drive in Surfside, according to paparazzi photos. She paid $11.5 million for the property almost a year ago when the former couple announced their divorce. Bündchen owns a non-waterfront home in Surfside that she acquired months before that.
In addition to the Surfside homes, she also recently paid just over $9 million for a 7.5-acre equestrian estate in Southwest Ranches, which is in western Broward county.
