There is no doubt that the legendary Wayne Gretzky does not need more money than he already has, but who are we to say that? The problem is that he will have to find someone with more than $20 million chilling in the bank to buy his California estate.
The Great One and his wife Janet built the Colonial-style mansion on nearly 7-acres following his retirement in 1999, and it’s now on the market for $22.9 million.
Located in the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, the house is gigantic and includes a movie theatre, a billiards room, a swimming pool, a tennis court, an entertainment area, and a wine cellar. It looks so good with its red brick and classic white columns, which was designed by Richard Landry. In total, the property houses six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms across 13,300 square feet.
Now, it is on the market, but we all know how it turned out many years ago. Gretzky sold the same multi-million dollar estate in 2007, but ended up buying it back in 2018.
So who knows, it might get sold again - despite the incredible amount of money the retired NHL player and his wife are seeking - and they could miss it too much and look to buy it again in a couple of years.
Check out some of the pictures from the estate, especially if you want to buy it and hold some crazy post-COVID-19 parties.
We will see how long it stays on the market. We will get to see if Gretzky is as good with the numbers on the real estate market then on the ice. Tough bar to reach, he who is known for his illustrious 20 season career, during which he set a plethora of records, including tallying the most points in NHL history.
