      Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are under contract to buy a stunning full-floor condo in New York City for $14 million.

      First reported by the New York Post, Brady and Bundchen are buying an incredible 3-bedroom condo on the 47th floor of the famed One Madison building that was originally listed for $16.5 million.

      Their new Manhattan digs are the highest single full-floor home at One Madison, and sits a few floors beneath the building’s three-floor, $50 million penthouse.

      Accessed by a keyed elevator entrance that leads to a private foyer, Tom and Gisele’s new Gotham home features a gracious master bedroom suite, including a corner sitting room with North and East views, two walk-in closets and master bath with soaking tub, separate stall shower, double vanities and private bathroom. The other two bedrooms offer ensuite baths and generous closet space.

      In the main living space, a great room connects to an open kitchen and separate dining area.

      One Madison ran into financial woes almost immediately after it hit the market in 2007. Foreclosures and lawsuits plagued the high rise until it was taken over by new management, who were then able to attract A-list buyers.

      Brady once owned a condo at Time Warner Center, which he sold for $17.5 million and Bündchen previously owned a triplex penthouse on West 11th Street, which she sold for $4.4 million.

      Together, Brady and Bunchen were previously spotted checking out an $11.495 million duplex at 212 W 18th street before they settled on their new, incredible pad. On the West Coast, Tom, Gisele and their kids rest their heads in a $20 million-dollar, custom-built mansion with a moat.

        Former All-Star American League left fielder now traded to the LA Dodgers

        Home Stats

        5-bedroom, 6-bath with in-house barber shop and batting cage

        Price

        $2,990,000

        As part of one of the biggest trades in baseball history, the Los Angeles Dodgers closed a huge nine-player swap with the Boston Red Sox earlier this fall, acquiring Boston’s star left fielder Carl Crawford. Crawford, a former four-time All-Star for the Tampa Bay Rays, hit a solid .282 with Boston during his early 2012 season before being hit with news of the trade and shipped off to LA  mid-season.

        For the past few months the left-hander has been on the disabled list recovering from Tommy John elbow surgery, a very common baseball injury. He has also been busy becoming acquainted with a completely new team, new city and new home due to another common occurrence in the professional baseball world: a sudden cross-country trade. Fast-forward to the MLB’s playoff-month of October and the Los Angeles Dodgers are out of the running, now switching gears to prep for a new 2013 season. Crawford too is now ready to officially start over in California as it is confirmed he has listed his Wellesley, Massachusetts mansion for an asking price of $2.99 million.

        This 7,426 square-foot estate has New England-style charm on the exterior and a contemporary, luxury design on the interior. Custom built just a year ago in 2011, the home sits on a privately gated cul-de-sac in historic Wellesley, Massachusetts, an expensive suburb of Boston that features high-priced properties with an average listing price of $1.6 million. The ultra-private living quarters offer five bedrooms, six baths and a three car garage. The estate’s interior is professionally designed with warm, nude color schemes gracing the walls and flooring, while splashes of bright greens, reds and browns on the furnishings accentuate the space and add some spicy personality to each room. But beautiful interior décor will not go to waste – according to the listing, buyers may purchase completely furnished!

        Other ultra-luxe amenities include: a home theater, game room, an in-house barber shop, three fireplaces, an enormous master suite, and last but definitely not least, an extra large exercise room with batting cage. Like other athlete and celeb properties, this estate does not disappoint!

          Ray Allen, formerly a megastar on the Boston Celtics, has migrated south to the warmer climate of Miami and started shooting hoops for the Heat. A new team and a new city means one thing for Allen – he must sell the baller-worthy Massachusetts mansion he and his family used to call home. According to Curbed, the semi-empty home has just hit the market with a price tag of $5.2 million.

          This swank Wellesley mansion was the Allen residence since he joined the Celtics in 2007. And just like the 6’5 hoops star, the home is large! It clocks in at 11,093 square feet. In all that square footage, you’ll find nine bedrooms, nine and a half bathrooms and four stories of stunning house on 1.44 acres.

          The home features a wood-paneled library, a 12-seater home theater, a statement foyer with curved walls and a beautiful staircase. The gated property also features impressive grounds and a six-car garage with 10 space carport.

            When it comes to luxe living, one might instantly think of the glamorous estates or posh condos found in America’s famous cities of Los Angeles or New York. But this Thanksgiving, what kinds of fancy digs can be found in America’s original “hometown” of Plymouth, MA– the town where the pilgrims shared the very first Thanksgiving feast back in 1621?

            With a small population of just 56,468 and a ginormous amount of historic tourism, the town of Plymouth masterfully blends small town comfort with Hollywood’s entertaining appeal. The same can be said for this stunning 7-bedroom, 7- bath 6,370 sq ft Plymouth harbor waterfront manor on the market for $3,900,000.

            This grand estate can be the poster boy for a modern home with historic allure. Sitting on 2.1 acres, the home greets you with a white exterior, beautiful columns and neo classical architecture exuding a vague resemblance of our nation’s White House. It features breathtaking ocean and harbor views from almost every room with a few rooms looking out to the 20 x 40 foot inground pool and brand new 12 x 24 foot cabana. Each room features arched doorways and intricate moldings and a few spaces include French and leaded glass doors. A winding staircase takes you to the multiple floors where you can find 3 custom gas logged fireplaces, a whole house generator, a game room and library with a built-in bookcase. Additionally, the home comes with a 4-car garage and brand new 22 x 60 foot boathouse.
