Tom Brady, the NFL legend known for his incredible career and for leading his teams to a record seven Super Bowl wins, is making waves off the field in Miami’s real estate scene.

His latest venture? A jaw-dropping waterfront mansion in the ultra-exclusive Indian Creek Island, affectionately dubbed “Billionaire Bunker.”

Yes, you heard that right – Brady is setting up his new bachelor pad in one of the most coveted slices of paradise in Miami, and let me tell you, it’s nothing short of spectacular.

For those keeping score at home, Indian Creek Island isn’t just any neighborhood. It’s a veritable who’s who of billionaires and A-listers, with names like Jeff Bezos and Ivanka Trump calling it home.

And now, Brady, fresh off his retirement and stepping into his new life chapter, is about to join this elite roster.

Tom Brady’s megamansion in Miami’s ultra-exclusive Indian Creek Island

Brady’s future digs, a sprawling estate that’s been the talk of the town, sits cozily across the waterway from the abode of his ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen.

The supermodel paid $11.5 million for her new spread at 1400 Biscaya Drive in Surfside right after their split and is currently revamping the waterfront home too.

So while the former A-list couple is keeping local construction crews busy, let’s take a closer look at the former New England Patriots quarterback’s sprawling Florida abode — and pin down what makes his newly built mansion a touchdown in luxury living.

Set at 26 Indian Creek Island Road, Tom Brady’s house in Miami has all the hallmarks of a celebrity megamansion to rival those of its deep-pocketed neighbors (Amazon boss Jeff Bezos paid $68 million for a teardown on the island).

We’re talking about a state-of-the-art gym (because, of course), a sleek study, and a waterfront pool and spa that screams relaxation with every ripple.

And for those balmy Florida nights? An outdoor kitchen, lush gardens, and a tree-lined driveway that leads to a motor court, ready to house Brady’s collection of high-end rides.

The property also boasts a plush pool cabana adjacent to an infinity pool lined with palm trees, creating a backyard oasis that’s second to none.

And for that extra touch of privacy and security? A large security house stands guard at the entrance.

Renderings of the mega-mansion have leaked, showing off the primary and guest suites, each with their own terraces.

You can take a peek inside thanks to these indoor renderings obtained by The Real Deal (swipe to see inside Tom Brady’s new house in Florida):

The interiors bear the signature of lauded designer Scott Mitchell of Scott Mitchell Studio, known for his standout designs, combining contemporary architecture with geometrical elements and juxtaposing soft, tactile textures against concrete and other natural materials.

Mitchell’s design style, which creates a sense of understated comfort, has drawn in some of the richest people in the US.

Beyond his long-standing collaboration with Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, he also counted billionaires Larry Ellison and David Geffen as clients, as well as former Walt Disney Studios boss Jeffrey Katzenberg.

It’s clear no expense has been spared in creating this slice of heaven. With construction in the final stages, sources hint that Brady is expected to move in come spring.

By the numbers: How much it’ll cost him

Now, let’s talk numbers because they’re just as impressive as the property.

Brady and Bündchen snagged the 2-acre lot almost three years ago for a cool $17 million. And as hefty as that might sound, it’s worth remembering that the lot sits in one of the richest neighborhoods in the United States.

Properties here typically sell for eight-figure amounts and are rarely up for grabs.

In 2023, a waterfront mansion just down the street from Tom Brady’s house listed for a whopping $85 million. We haven’t seen any other Indian Creek houses pop up on the market since.

But the land cost isn’t reflective of the overall value of the property — which sits north of $50 million.

The construction loan Brady took out from JPMorgan Chase to build his Indian Creek Island house sits at a whopping $35 million, The Real Deal reports.

But when you’re Tom Brady, with an estimated net worth of $500 million and a $375 million deal with FOX as an NFL commentator waiting in the wings, well, let’s just say he’s playing in a league of his own.

Indian Creek Island has long been a haven for the mega-rich, but Brady’s new abode is set to raise the bar even higher. And while he’s traded the gridiron for the good life in Florida, it’s clear Brady is still in the game – the real estate game, that is.

Hunkering down in the ‘Billionaire Bunker’

Indian Creek Island — known as “Billionaire Bunker” due to the high concentration of billionaires that own property here — is a high-security paradise for the ultra-wealthy, nestled on a barrier island in Biscayne Bay, Florida.

This exclusive enclave boasts under 50 waterfront properties, each sprawling over 1.25 acres, centered around a lavish 18-hole golf course.

Homes here are no small investment, with properties here selling for well above the $20 million market, with recent standout purchases consolidating the island’s air of affluence and privacy. Just a couple of homes have traded hands on the ultra-exclusive island in recent years, one being Bezos’ $68 million purchase, and the other another $50 million home.

DJ and producer David Guetta is also looking to join this exclusive club, reportedly snapping up a $69 million newly built house on the island.

The community is so secure that it has its own 13-person private police force patrolling by land and water, ensuring that residents like Tom Brady can enjoy their sanctuary without worry.

From what we’ve seen so far, the NFL legend’s new mansion is more than just a home; it’s a sort of statement that life after football can be equally exciting for the five-time MVP.

And honestly, we can’t wait to see the final reveal. Welcome to the neighborhood, Tom!
