Being a member of NHL royalty obviously has its perks, and for “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky, it involves being the owner of a sprawling estate located in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Situated in the gated community surrounding Sherwood Country Club, Gretzky’s mansion and lavish grounds recently were put on the market. Asking price? $14.9 million. Built in 2002 by Gretzky in partnership with “architect to the stars” Richard Landry, the main home by itself measures a whopping 10,815 square feet, but the many buildings and associated amenities that surround it on the 6.5-acre plot, including two guest houses, is where the high asking price is truly legitimized. As described in its listing, via Zillow.com: A timeless estate, offering the utmost in luxury, with a chic Metropolitan vibe. Designed by famed architect Richard Landry, this newly remodeled spectacular home offers privacy and security, set on a 6.5 acre promontory within the prestigious gates of Sherwood Country Club. The residence includes 6BD, 8BA, over 13,000 SF with 2 guest houses. A gated entry leads you to a circular driveway with a scenic backdrop of the majestic mountains and breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Sherwood. Exquisite attention to detail and artisan craftsmanship is found in each and every room. Amenities include a master suite with sitting room and dual baths, screening room, fitness facility, office, championship tennis court, outdoor entertainment area wood burning pizza oven, wood and gas BBQ, promenade terraces and gardens. Located within the 24 hour guard gated Sherwood Country Club Estates, home to the world famous signature golf course and country club often called the ultimate living experience. Ultimate living experience, indeed, although the descriptive listing does not quite encompass the exquisite and luxurious nature of the home and the lavish environs that comprise the surrounding grounds: While Wayne Gretzky may not generate the kind of internet frenzy and headlines his photogenic and popular daughter Paulina attracts on a routine basis these days, the fact alone that he has been the owner of such a prime piece of real estate certainly and is listing it for $14.9 million indicates he’s not suffering too much.
