Tom Brady is renting his Tampa Bay mansion from Derek Jeter. The family is moving into the 30,000-square-foot waterfront mansion. “St. Jetersburg” is a really lovely place, and Brady’s kids will love it.
During his interview on Sirius XM’s The Howard Stern Show, TB12 revealed that he and his family will stay in the house for quite some time. Let’s not forget that he signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“I’m going to stay here for a while,” he says. “I had to find a place on really short notice and he’s been a friend of mine, so we just talked and it all worked out. It just worked out perfect for me being here and kind of getting my life started here.”
But, there’s one particular issue. The mansion has a six-foot-tall fence, but it isn’t as private as his home in Chestnut Hill.
“Where I lived in Chestnut Hill, I was pretty private for a long time,” the quarterback explained. “So I forgot, in a way, like people could drive up to your house. You couldn’t drive up to my house where I lived in Chestnut Hill. Here, they could pull right up to the back of the house. This is a little different because when you go out to the backyard, there’s a lot of boats that have pulled up and people out the front.”
The Brady family is happy with his Tampa Bay mansion
Brady says he is an introvert who likes to relax in his quiet house. No noise, no outside influence.
“When you walk outside the house you understand everything that goes along with being me,” Brady said of his privacy. “I think part of it is when I come home I want to feel like I can let my guard down and relax.”
But, the mansion is definitely great for his family. It’s great for his wife and kids, so the introvert will have to get used to his new home.
“There’s enough space here,” Brady noted. “We have my sister in law that lives with us, our kids and we have someone that cooks for us. So everyone’s got a little of space. The nice part is we have a lot of outdoor space here. I can do all my football training here, which I really like. It’s been a good place to come down. He left it furnished for me so I didn’t have to deal with any of that.”
Brady loves the mansion, and believes that Jeter did an excellent job.
