Drew Brees is an American football player for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints football team. Considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, Brees was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2001 and played for the team until signing onto the New Orleans Saints, his current team, as a free agent in 2006 following a shoulder injury. But enough of all that, this article is all about Drew Brees house!

Brees has had one heck of a career with the NFL, with some of his most notable accomplishments including his status as MVP at Super Bowl XLIV as well as being a record holder in numerous passing categories, including yards (11,792), attempts (1,678), and completions (1,026). In addition to his dedication on the field, Brees and his wife, Britany, also give much of their time to charity, even establishing The Brees Dream Foundation, a nonprofit charity which seeks help children suffering from cancer. Thanks to Brees and his family, the charity has raised over $33 million.

So, where does a superstar athlete like Drew Brees live? We’ve got all the details for you below!

Where Does Drew Brees Live?

From his former San Diego digs to his current New Orleans spread, we have all the deets on Saints quarterback Drew Brees past and present real estate.

Drew Brees House New Orleans (Current)

Purchased for $1.6 million back in 2006, Brees’ stunning 10,800 square foot home has 4-bedrooms, 3-bathrooms, and 2-half bathrooms. Natural lighting can be found throughout the home from the numerous windows on both the front and back of the house. With an open floor plan, the interior feels spacious, yet cozy.

Walking through the iron lace doors, visitors are immediately be greeted with the foyer, which features hardwood floors as well as a classy crystal chandelier. Off the foyer sits several sliding doors that lead to the solarium, the living room, the dining room, and the den. The living room offers lots of space and comfort along with a view of the grounds beyond through the front bay windows, but the living room isn’t the only location in the house that offers a fantastic view since the den features panoramic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the pool out back.

If you’re not impressed yet, keep reading, we have more! Like the massive gourmet kitchen for example, which features a granite top island and counters, custom cabinets made from gorgeous cherry wood, and slate floors, or the 2,432 square foot basement with a wine cellar.

Moving upstairs, the second level has a large study with built-in shelving, wood flooring in all four bedrooms, a breathtaking master suite that has not only a fireplace, but also an en-suite bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, and huge his and hers walk-in closets, so Mr. and Mrs. Brees never have to fight over wardrobe space. As for the exterior, the large backyard features a luxurious swimming pool (because what would a famous person’s home be without one?), lots of privacy thanks to the brick wall that protects the backyard from paparazzi or nosey neighbors, a beautiful courtyard with lots of shade, and plenty of lush landscape that includes azaleas, palm trees, and gardens.

Even though they have gained much more success since purchasing in 2006, Brees and family still reside in this perfect slice of Nola Paradise. Since Brees is currently playing for the Saints, we can assume he will likely be calling this house home for a while. Should he ever decide to sell it, however, Velvet Ropes will be the first to let you know.

Drew Brees House Kauai (Current)

Another incredible piece of real estate owned by Brees, this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit features a stunning view of Kauai’s Hanalei Bay. The football star purchased the tropical getaway, located within Pu’u Poa Condos on the northern shore of Kauai, for $1.761 in 2006.

The unit features 1,752 square feet of living space, not including the 400 additional square feet that comes from the open-facing lanai which overlooks the ocean. Additional features include glass walls and an atrium. Brees and his wife listed the home in 2015 for $1.7 million, but the couple has yet to find a buyer as of 2019.

Drew Brees House San Diego (Former)

Brees and his wife purchased this beauty back in 2003 for $2.2 million. Despite selling it sometime in 2012 for $2.4 million, we still thought it deserved an honorable mention for just how awesome it is.

Located in the gated community of Fairbanks Highlands in Carmel Valley, this 6,000 square foot home is the definition of utopia. The exterior alone is enough to drool over, with its slightly Mediterranean-inspired architectural style, its large resort-style salt-water swimming pool (complete with a miniature waterfall), a 6-hole putting green, an outdoor fireplace, an outdoor covered dining area, and gorgeous lush landscaping with lots of palm trees and flowers.

If you think all that sounds amazing, wait to you see the inside! The interior of the home, which boasts 5-bedrooms and 5.5-bathrooms, has just as much to offer as the outside. Starting with indoor amenities, the house features a wet bar with an adjoining sitting area complete with a fireplace and a billiards room. The formal dining room has excellent natural lighting and a great view of the pool outside from the large floor-to-ceiling window. Directly next to the dining room sits the spacious pro chef’s kitchen, which features custom wood floors and cabinets as well as beige granite countertops and island. The master suite has its own fireplace as well as an en-suite bathroom with a super luxurious jacuzzi tub.

Drew Brees House Austin TX

So, during my research for this article, I came across a ton of you looking for Drew Brees house in Austin, Texas. Try as I might, there is no proof he has a home in Austin. There are are few sources hinting at homes that are his, but there is absolutely nothing to back up those claims. The Velvet Ropes team prides ourselves with only reporting verified information for you guys, and as far as we can tell, Drew Brees DOES NOT have a home in Austin.

Drew Brees Cars

In addition to his love of luxury real estate, Drew Brees is also a well-known petrol-head and has been the proud owner of some pretty hot rides. Some of the most noteworthy vehicles in the athlete’s collection, both past, and present, include a 1967 Ford Mustang purchased in 2009, a 2012 BMW purchased in 2013, a Tesla Model S purchased in 2014, a 1st generation 1967 butternut-yellow Chevy Camaro, which Brees auctioned off several years back, and most recently a Bugatti Veyron that he paid a whopping $2.2 million for in 2019.

The Bugatti is easily his most expensive automobile purchase to date, and maintenance isn’t cheap either. It costs $25,000 just for an oil change on one of these babies! (yeah, you didn’t misread that number, it’s actually 25k!). All in all, Brees’ car collection is estimated to be worth at least $4.2 million.

Drew Brees Wife

Drew Brees met his future wife, Brittany Dudchenko, while the two were attending Purdue University. A romantic relationship ensued in their sophomore year, and the couple continued to date for several years until finally deciding to tie the knot on February 8, 2003.

In 2009, Brittany gave birth to the couple’s first child, Baylen Robert Brees. As of 2019, the happily married duo now have 3 additional children – Bowen Christopher Brees (born 2010), Callen Christian Brees (born 2012), and Rylen Judith Brees (born 2014).

Drew Brees Net Worth

As of 2019, quarterback Drew Brees estimated net worth stands at an incredible $100 million. In fact, the pro quarterback is one of the highest paid NFL players in the history of the sport. So that’s how he affords all those crazy houses and cars!

His status as one of the greats has also gained him numerous endorsements from big-name companies. He has even been a pitchman for Procter & Gamble, Nike, PepsiCo, Wrangler, AdvoCare, Microsoft, and Verizon.

Bring on the money, brand deals!
