Pretty People List Posh Pied-À-Terre in Flatiron District


David, Mark, Variety


Though it's flown under the radar since it first popped up on the open market in early June, an eagle-eyed informant swears that all-American pigskin-tosser Tom Brady and Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen have listed their pied-à-terre at the sleek One Madison tower in New York City's Flatiron District with a $17.25 million price tag.

Acquired in early 2014 for a bit more than $11.7 million, the high-floor condo spans slightly more than 3,300 square feet and has three bedrooms and 3.5 baths. It was "re-imagined," per marketing materials, in crisply understated luxury by the celebrated architect Peter Marino. A private elevator landing opens to a light-filled combination living/dining room wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows that grant unimpeded if potentially vertigo-inducing views of the Empire State Building and Hudson River. A separate den offers more spine-tingling city views, including the World Trade Center, to the south. Both guest/family bedrooms have private baths, and the master suite sports a two-person soaking tub daringly positioned in a corner with floor-to-ceiling windows. The luxury building, whose four uppermost floors are owned by global media mega-mogul Rupert Murdoch, provides residents with round-the-clock doorman and concierge services, a private screening room, a private dining room with catering kitchen, and a fitness facility with a lap pool and steam room.

The Brady-Bündchens - who, in 2014, sold a custom-built 14,000-square-foot eco-conscious faux-chateau in Los Angeles for $40 million to rapper Dr. Dre - primarily reside in Boston's wealthy Chestnut Hill community.

There, they custom built a stately stone manor of nearly 15,000 square feet on more than five plush acres that border the manicured fairways of a tony country club. That the uncommonly comely and exceptionally well-compensated couple - she hoovered up $30.5 million last year, and he has a new four-year contract with the New England Patriots worth $60 million, according to Forbes - would want to shed their Flatiron condo isn't a total surprise: They've reportedly made a deal of more than $20 million for an approximately 5,000-square-foot condo in a not-yet-completed luxury complex in Tribeca.

Panacea's Gardner Is Ready to Downsize

Panacea Entertainment honcho Eric Gardner has his discreet estate in the affluent, semi-rural community of Santa Rosa Valley, near Thousand Oaks, Calif., on the market with an asking price just shy of $2.5 million. Gardner - who started out as a tour coordinator for bands like the Grateful Dead and Kiss before shifting to artist management - purchased the gated, two-acre spread in 2000 for a little more than $1.1 million.

The nearly 8,200-square-foot mansion has six bedrooms and eight full bathrooms. A double-height foyer with a floating staircase has pale-blond hardwood flooring that extends into the formal dining room, which features a built-in aquarium. The massive great room along the rear of the house incorporates several sitting and dining areas, as well as a spacious center-island kitchen with all the culinary bells and whistles.

A separate media lounge has a fireplace and wet bar. There's also an office/library whose walls are currently hung with an impressive trove of gold and platinum records earned by Gardner's big-name clients.

The area certainly offers more bang for the buck than city properties, with features including a vast covered patio with an outdoor kitchen that overlooks an oval swimming pool surrounded by stone terracing. The property is ideal for the suburban farmer: The park-like grounds offer a chicken coop, in addition to a playground and a gazebo, which is set on a peninsula that juts into a boulder-ringed, koi-stocked pond.

Gardner told this property gossip that he and his wife, Janis Gardner, who previously owned a stunning Mediterranean in L.A.'s Los Feliz area that they sold in 2000 for not quite $1.9 million, moved to the affluent suburban outskirts of L. …
