The New Orleans home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. In the master suite, the house features his and hers walk-in closets, so Brees and his wife, Brittany, never have to argue for clothing space. In addition, there is a jacuzzi tub in the master suite, which is just perfect for a player of his caliber.

This stunning home has ample natural lighting, as huge windows are evident from the exterior. Inside, the house is laced with hardwood floors, while a spiral staircase decorated with a crystal chandelier leads to the upper floors. The main door leads to a stunning foyer leading to a solarium.

The living room and dining room are spacious and offer beautiful views of the house exterior. Talking of views, the den provides the best panoramic views of the swimming pool and beyond.

Drew Breeze is a big fan of real estate, an industry he has invested in, including through his charity works. He is sure to scoop up all the good deals when it comes to personal preference, and his Four Seasons home is the latest indication of that. He recently bought a condominium in Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans on Canal Street.

Four Seasons is believed to be one of the most lavish and expensive real estate projects in downtown New Orleans. Still, it is thought that Dree’s condo might have the best features, making it the most expensive unit. For starters, he has access to the bar and lounge, and his room has a golf simulator room.

Drew and his family can enjoy extra perks like swimming in the establishment’s 75-foot outdoor pool and enjoying the best views of the French Quarter and Mississippi River from the condo.

The house also features a wet bar with ample sitting space. Next to it is a billiards room with lots of natural lighting, not to mention the elegant views of the house’s exterior. The entire home has a beige theme, which is also evident in the kitchen, which features beige countertops. However, custom wood floors and cabinets are the real attractions in the kitchen.

Outside is a large swimming pool that lays magnificently as you’d find in a resort. It is a saltwater pool that also features a miniature waterfall. Elsewhere, the exterior features a 6-hole putting green, an outdoor dining area, and an outdoor fireplace. The green exterior sits nicely against the slightly Mediterranean architecture, giving the home such a rich vibe.

While Drew Bees owned this house while playing for the Chargers, it is believed he sold it in 2012, years after moving to San Diego.
