Being the world's highest paid supermodel, it makes sense that Gisele Bündchen's home would be an impressive, sprawling mansion on the California coast. However, the eco-conscious house that she built with NFL player husband Tom Brady is also a relaxed family home, where putting your feet up on the furniture is a priority.
Gracing the cover of Architectural Digest, the Brazilian model opened up her $20 million mega-mansion which the couple designed themselves alongside architect Richard Landry.
'I like simplicity and coziness,' Gisele told the magazine. 'I want to live in a place that feels like a real home, where you can put your feet up on the couch and just relax.'
Married in 2009, the couple have two kids, three-year-old Benjamin and baby daughter, Vivian Lake, along with six-year-old John, Brady's son from a previous marriage - so they decided their family needed some roots, and a plot of land overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Brentwood, California was the perfect spot.
'Gisele and I have eight sisters between us, and there are lots of kids. We built this house as a sanctuary for our family - a place where we can enjoy being together,' explained Brady.
Also being a global ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme, Gisele and her hubby are acutely aware of environmental issues and made every effort to ensure their house was built with recycled materials where possible and ensured it was as self-sustaining, including installing solar panels for all their electricity needs, composting and grey-water technology.
