For all his on-field success, Tom Brady remains, much like Rafael Nadal, a relatively understated figure at first glance. He's attended, and summarily failed to turn heads at, many a Met Gala in his time, despite being on the arm of Gisele Bundchen.
But as with Rafa, who just bought a custom, $8 million yacht on the DL, it appears that he prefers to let his assets and performances speak for themselves.

Take, for instance, the gigantic Boston mansion that the New England Patriots QB just listed on the market for an eye-watering $58.8 million AUD. And you thought he was too Tom Brady to care about fancy houses.
The absolute castle of a property sits on a five-acre plot overlooking a golf course, and gives full-time residents access to 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms (plus two more half), driveway space for 20 cars, and presumably a secure room where Brady hordes his Super Bowl rings like Thanos does infinity stones. It also has a barn-inspired guest house with a built-in Yoga studio.
Other amenities include, according to the realtors, "a stunning dining room, living room, home office, eat-in and chef's kitchen and a family room all with generous fenestration... a recreation room, kids play room, full bath, gym, spa and outdoor organic herb/vegetable garden."
The sprawling estate is being sold presumably to secure funds for another huge mansion that he's just purchased in LA, fuelling rumours that he was set to either move to another team after nearly 20 years with the New England Patriots or announce his impending retirement. He just signed a two-year contract with the Patriots though, so he's not going anywhere soon.
