Oh how we miss Cribs, the show that let us explore Mariah Carey's ridiculous shoe collection and have a dip in her bubble bath. Now it's no longer on MTV we can't see Kimye's Givenchy gear or check out Cara Delevingne's beanies.
But all is not lost as we can explore Gisele Bundchen's $20 million Brentwood, California pad, thanks to the latest issue of Architectural Digest. So what does 20million buy one in California you ask? AD write that, 'The reality of Bu?ndchen and Brady’s life in Los Angeles’s Brentwood neighborhood is far more—dare we say it?—normal.' Err, do most normal houses have a MOAT? Sorry, let's be precise, a koi-stocked moat.
The 22,000 square-foot house has bronzed windows, a custom-built gym bigger than our flats and a bridge instead of a front drive. It also has a loggia which, after a quick google search, we can inform you is a room missing a wall or two so it is open to the elements. You can do quirky stuff like that in California.
We can also step inside Gisele's wardrobe, which is almost as cool as Cher Horowitz's. Almost. She has three shelves packed with gold strappy stilettos, a red leather biker out on display and an antique crystal chandelier in the centre of the room. There is also a Buddha at the top of the room to the keep the peace during outfit meltdowns.
The couple built the house from scratch, building the Bundchen-Brady mansion on an open lot of land. Gisele says: 'I like simplicity and coziness. I want to live in a place that feels like a real home, where you can put your feet up on the couch and just relax.'
It was important to Gisele that the house is environmentally friendly, so they use gray-water technology for irrigation and photovoltaic solar panels (you have permission to Wikipedia these two). Gisele said: 'From the beginning we asked everyone involved in the design and construction, ‘How can we make it as sustainable as possible?’
