Tom Brady's $20M Mansion or Eli Manning's Fully-Automated House: Whose Home is Nicer? [PHOTOS]
Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen just moved into a $20M mansion in Brentwood, Calif., and Eli Manning shares a fully-automated condo in Hoboken, N.J. with his wife Abby. This photo slideshow allows you to decide: whose house is nicer?
Tom Brady's $20M Mansion:
While Gisele Bundchen cheers on her husband, Tom Brady, and his New England Patriots as they take on Eli Manning's New York Giants at the Super Bowl this Sunday in Indianapolis, she'll be able to rest easy, knowing she has the couple's new 22,000-square-foot house to look forward to.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen reportedly moved into the house recently with their 21-month-old son Benjamin, according to Inhabit.com.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have said that the house includes green features, including rooftop solar panels and a rainwater recovery system. Construction on the house, located in a Brentwood canyon, began about a year-and-a-half ago.
The home has eight bedrooms, a lagoon-shaped swimming pool with spa, a weight room, a wine cellar, a six-car garage, and a bridge connecting two wings of the house. It also includes a butler's room, a nursery, and an elevator.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen bought the 3.75-acre lot in 2008 for $11 million. They had the plans drawn up and then redone, as the first spec was deemed too small, reports The Daily Mail, which estimates their wealth at about $90 million.
Eli Manning's Fully-Automated Condo:
Eli Manning and his wife Abby live together in a 3,000 square-foot, fully-automated condo in the Hudson Tea Building in Hoboken, N.J.
The home is less-flashy than Tom Brady's, but it is top-tier living for being so centrally-located between the Meadowlands, N.J., where he plays in Giants games at the new MetLife Stadium, and New York City.
Their condominium is state-of-the-art, allowing them to control all of their home electronics with the touch of a button. The condo, which boasts majestic views of Manhattan across the Hudson River, has a variety remotely-controllable features, including lighting schemes, audio systems, motorized shades, and a motorized pillar that opens up to display their liquor cabinet, according to professionalathletehomes.com.
The couple's master bedroom, kitchen, living room and master bathroom all have mounted touchscreens that allow them to control all their gadgets, and the whole set-up can be turned off at once to make leaving the house as easy as possible.
