Beats By Dre were recently bought out by Apple for a massive $3billion dollars, and Dr. Dre has wasted absolutely no time in flexing his spending muscle since the acquisition. The rapper and entrepreneur turned business mogul has just bought Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen's Brentwood estate in Los Angeles for $40 million.
The New England Patriots star quarterback and the supermodel and actress had originally listed the mansion at $50million but it seems that they were wrangled down by the 49-year old Dre.
According to the LA Times real estate section, the four-acre estate revolves around a country French chateau that is reached by a winding driveway. A cobblestone motor court and a moat/koi pond add an Old World ambience to the mansion, which was designed by respected architect Richard Landry.
Clad in limestone, the house features reclaimed ceiling beams, salvaged tile and antique doors. The 18,298 square feet of living space includes a center hall, a den, a library/study, a gym, a sauna, five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, loggias, covered terraces, balconies and garage space.
The grounds, irrigated by a gray-water system, include expanses of lawn, gardens, waterfalls, ponds, an infinity pool and pathways. Electricity is supplied by solar panels.
Brady first bought the property in 2008 for $11.75 million and has made a significant profit on the mansion in just 6 years.
