For Sale: Wayne Gretzky's Thousand Oaks Mansion
Hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky and his wife, actress Janet Jones, have fixed up their Thousand Oaks, Calif., mansion and are selling it for $10.5 million. Gretzky has been called audacious, and so might his house. But he has also been called The Great One, and the listing promises the estate "merely leaves you breathless from the very first footstep of the front door."
The 8,711-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-bath home doesn't hold back on luxury, with pillars, molding, dark carpets, a gold fireplace, and masculine black chandeliers in the living room and entry hallways. The front door is flanked by immaculate hedges and looks onto a tiered black fountain, and several rooms open up to a veranda with a large swimming pool and pool-house with an exercise room.
The Gretzkys bought the house in 2009 for $2.765 million and added the pool and pool-house, among other things, according to The Real Estalker. Listing agent Nicole Van Parys of Engel & Volkers Westlake Village was not available for comment.
