Tom Brady’s green dream mansion in Los Angeles is nearly completed, and should be quite the touchdown pass to environmentalists. The 22,000 square foot house of luxury includes a six-car garage, eight bedrooms, a weight room, a wine cellar, and a lagoon shaped swimming pool, reports the Boston Herald. The home also comes with a covered bridge connecting two wings of the home, a gallery, an elevator, and a nursery for his son Benjamin.
The home cost more than $20 million not to mention an additional $11 million for the 3.75 acres of land in Brentwood, Ca. The wife of Mr. Brady, Giselle Bundchen, happens to be a United Nations environmental ambassador with an implied duty to build an environmentally conscious residence. According to the Herald, the Brazilian supermodel had the home built with energy-saving lighting, rainwater recovery systems, waste reduction and recycling programs, energy efficient appliances, sustainable building materials, and solar energy integrated throughout the home.
According to Forbes magazine, Tom and Giselle can certainly afford the energy saving add-ons due to the fact they are the world’s highest-paid celebrity couple with annual earnings reaching $76 million.
