What to add to the house that has everything...

If the resident is Grammy winner, record producer, and business mogul Dr. Dre, the answer is simple: an enormous (10,000-square-foot) music studio underneath.

Days after Beats was purchased—a feat which makes him the world’s top-earning musician of 2014—Dre made a purchase of his own: the magnificent Brentwood mansion formerly owned by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen—for $40 million. He immediately launched a remodeling project to add a gigantic music studio underneath the chateau.

The interior design elements include reclaimed ceiling beams, salvaged tile and antique doors.
