Tom Brady is Moving into a Home That Once Belonged to This Sports Icon
The year 2020 marks a giant change in footballer Tom Brady’s professional career. After saying goodbye to the New England Patriots, the team he’s been playing for since he was first drafted in 2000, the NFL star is moving teams and houses somewhere with warmer weather.
Tampa’s Newest Resident
After striking a contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady is reportedly starting to move his life to sunny Florida as he rents a mansion owned by baseball star Derek Jeter. According to reports, the 42-year-old athlete is taking his family with supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen to the massive 30,000 square-foot Tampa Bay home.
Brady, who has three children, will certainly find the mansion more than adequate to house his young family as it has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Even better, Jeter’s abode is conveniently near the AdventHealth Training Center, where Brady’s new team trains, and Raymond James Stadium, where the Buccaneers have played since 1998.
And being located right by the water, the kids can enjoy various activities such as boating as the property comes with two boat lifts. They can also stay occupied with the entertainment room and billiards room that come with their new home.
The Fruit of Hard Work
Jeter, who’s known for playing for the New York Yankees, built the mansion himself. He began by purchasing two waterfront lots in 2005 and 2006 and razing the $7.67 million properties to make way for his own home.
With the help of Winter Park Design and J. O. DeLotto & Sons, the baseball legend began constructing the mansion in 2008 spending an additional $6 million to $7 million for the project. It was finally completed in 2010. The home’s current value is currently estimated to be over $15 million.
These days, Jeter is busy being the co-owner of the Miami Marlins baseball team. He notably lived in the same Florida city during his playing career.
The footballer’s potential departure from the Patriots has been speculated even before he officially made the announcement. He and his wife notably put their longtime Massachusetts mansion, which they’ve been calling home while Brady played for the Boston-area team.
His current contract with the Buccaneers will last two years and will earn him a whopping $50 million with an additional $9 million worth of incentives.
