Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen and her husband Tom Brady have opened up their lavish Brentwood, California home for Architectural Digest cameras.

The couple's impressive spread graces the cover of the new October (13) issue of the publication.

Bundchen also opens up about the place's eco-friendly design, revealing it features extensive solar panelling.

She says, "90 per cent of the materials used to construct our house were reclaimed."

The supermodel also tells the magazine that her California home allows her and Brady to be semi-self-sufficient, explaining, "We grow 85 per cent of our fruits and vegetables (here)."

The estate features a koi-stocked moat, professional-grade kitchen and a top-of-the-range gym.
