Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady officially announced their split just weeks ago after months of highly publicized marital problems, but sale documents reveal that the fashion model has been looking for her own space for much longer.
Gisele Bündchen purchased a modest three-bedroom family home in Surfside, Florida in February this year, a drastic change to Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s home before their divorce, and is now looking to renovate it.
This is what we know about the $1.3 million cottage.
The model completed the purchase quietly at the end of February this year, around two weeks before her soon-to-be ex-surprise husband’s NFL comeback, according to the New York Post.
One Sotheby’s realty initially held the listing, which described the property as a “charming Art Deco-style cottage.”
The 1940s three-bedroom home also has two-and-a-half bathrooms spread across 1,540 square feet – a much smaller footprint than Gisele may be accustomed to, with many of Tom Brady’s houses boasting mansion-like sizes.
Despite having recently been renovated, records show that Gisele has given control of the property to luxury construction company Ivey Design Build in order to change things up yet again.
The property currently has an airy open-plan layout that takes advantage of swaths of natural light that flow throughout the property. The open-plan kitchen currently features an oversized marble waterfall island, a breakfast bar, all-white cabinetry and backsplash ideas, and high-end stainless-steel appliances.
The open concept design extends to the living-entry space, which includes a modestly sized family room with a brick faux fireplace, dining area, and real hardwood floors throughout.
While the master suite is no match for the exes’ unfinished $27 million Miami beach mansion, it does include a spa-like bathroom retreat with batt, glass-encased walk-in shower, and dual vanities.
Outside, there is a small, contained lawn area framed by tall green hedges, as well as a small raised outdoor patio ideal for catching some fresh air away from prying eyes. The front is equally unassuming, with a brick driveway leading to a charming front entry.
