PHOTOS: Inside Tom Brady's $20 million moat-mansion

By John Breech |

Back in January, news surfaced that New England Patriots quarterback had bought a mansion in Southern California. A $20 million mansion -- and not just any $20 million mansion.

According to Homes of the Rich, Brady's $20 million mansion includes a moat, a bridge, eight bedrooms, a 2-story foyer with curved staircase, formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet kitchen, a breakfast room, a library, a home office, a wine cellar, a gym, numerous covered outdoor living areas, a 6-plus car garage and a lagoon-style swimming pool.

Basically, Brady's mansion has everything that your house, condo and my crappy apartment don't have.

And lets be honest here, the moat isn't even the most impressive thing. If you have a shovel, a few city permits and 96,000 gallons of water, you can build your own moat.

The most impressive thing is the breakfast room. Think about his for a second before you go watch any Patriots preseason games: Tom Brady has a room just for breakfast. How can you not cheer for that guy? Or for a guy that's married to Gisele Bundchen?

Anyway, back to the mansion. Before this week, pictures of the house didn't really exist. There was one aerial video taken in January, but that's it. Well, we have some good news on the Tom Brady mansion-front: more photos exist.

But we also have some bad news too: We've been asked to take them down. If you didn't get to see them, you'll just have to imagine what a breakfast room looks like.
