The last time Patriots QB Tom Brady and small-town girl Gisele Bundchen put their Beacon Street condo up for sale in 2009, they asked $10.9 million. It seemed a tad ambitious at the time, given the popped housing market, and, predictably enough, the couple took the home off the market soon after.
The 5,311-square-foot pied-a-terre overlooking the Charles River has been price-chopped this time around by a smooth $400,000. Brady and Bundchen now want $10.5 million for their 3 bedrooms; 3.5 bathrooms; "grand living area" on the top floor with two gas fireplaces and media room; landscaped roof deck; copper-clad solarium with two skylights; outdoor kitchen; steam shower; and, as an added bonus, the deep-soaking tub where Bundchen birthed the couple's son Benjamin two years ago.
The couple have switched brokers this time around, The Herald's Gayle Lee and Laura Raposa report, hiring Allison Mazer of Gibson Sotheby's International Realty, who declined to talk to the tab. One catch with this monster: Taxes run to over $73,000 annually, and the monthly condo fees are $8,218.38. Brady apparently owns the building, and sold two other condos in it in 2007, retaining the top two floors as his penthouse kingdom from which to point toward New York and laugh at Rex Ryan.
