With the growing popularity of Florida real estate, athletes, celebrities, and other influential individuals are finding themselves flocking to the Sunshine State in search of pristine properties and beautiful weather all year round. Having first made the big move to Tampa Bay when ex-husband Tom Brady signed an NFL contract with the Tampa Bay Buccanneers, Brazilian model, and actress Gisele Bündchen recently made real estate news as she recently closed on a magnificent property on the outskirts of sunny South Florida. More specifically, Gisele purchased a 7.5-acre equestrian ranch in Southwest Ranches, Florida for her and her children.

The almost 5,200 sqft. remodeled mansion features a massive nine-bedroom configuration equipped with a first-floor primary suite, gourmet kitchen, floating glass staircase, fireplace, and an open-concept living room. Built on a plot with tons of yard space, Gisele and her family plan on sharing their space with plenty of farm animal friends. Additionally, other outdoor amenities include a huge infinity pool, fountain water features, lounge area, outdoor kitchen, hibachi grill, pizza oven, BBQ pit, and a wine fridge for family festivities. The backyard is also equipped with soccer facilities, tennis courts, and 10 large horse stalls, complementing the active lifestyle of Gisele and her family. Along with welcoming Gisele Bündchen to the neighborhood, the area is also home to other celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Miami Heat star Udonis Johneal Haslem, and many more. Reportedly securing the home for $9.1 million, Gisele Bündchen is looking forward to privacy and serenity in her new luxury ranch home.
