LOS ANGELES — Tom Brady is moving up and down the field as he and the New England Patriots make another postseason run. Away from the gridiron, however, the three-time league MVP is still looking to score big in the real estate market.

Brady and his wife, former supermodel Gisele Bündchen, are asking $33.9 million for their gated estate in Massachusetts, a roughly $8-million reduction from when the property first hit the market last summer.

Set on roughly five acres in Brookline, the estate centers on a 10,000-square-foot brick manor designed by architect Richard Landry. The Los Angeles-based Landry is the same architect Brady and Bündchen commissioned to design their former estate in Brentwood, which they sold in 2014 to music mogul Dr. Dre for $40 million.

Built in 2015, the mansion blends rustic touches with a range of modern amenities. Among features of note are a great room set beneath exposed ceiling beams, a garden-view dining room and a lavish country-inspired kitchen.

A lower level holds a playroom, a wine room and spa amenities. There’s also a barn-inspired guesthouse with a yoga studio.

The property abuts the ninth hole of the Country Club, one of the oldest golf clubs in the United States. A zero-edge swimming pool, lawn and lush landscaping make up the grounds.

Brady and Bundchen bought the property in 2013.

Brady, 42, has spent his entire career with the Patriots, where he’s and won a record six Super Bowl championships. Bundchen, 39, has been on the covers of “Vogue,” “Vanity Fair” and “Allure,” among other magazines.

SALE MARKS END OF A DYNASTY

The West Hollywood condominium of late actress-singer Diahann Carroll has come on the market at $4.2 million.

The Sierra Towers residence, owned by Carroll for more than two decades, is on the 17th floor. Designed by Stephen Rieman and Mark Krasne, the condo features antiqued mirrors, hand-stenciled doors and a wet bar. Floor-to-ceiling windows wrap the condo, which sits on the northeast corner of the high-rise.

The 1,990-square-foot unit has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms was converted into a library, and the master suite offers a collection of closets. A chandelier-topped dining area with booth seating sits off the living room.

Carroll, who died in October at 84, was a pioneering stage and screen star known for her roles on “Julia” and “Dynasty.” Among the first black actresses to star in studio films, she received an Oscar nomination for her role in the 1974 comedy-drama “Claudine.”

She won a Tony Award for best actress in a musical in 1962 for her role in “No Strings.”
