Wayne Gretzky Just Sold His $6 Million Los Angeles Mansion

The former hockey player modelled the home after his favourite boutique hotels

When you retire as one of the greatest hockey players of all time, one expects you to have a pretty spectacular place to return to. This is certainly the case for Wayne Gretzky, who recently sold his Westlake Village, California, property, for $6 million, according to Curbed.
Built in 2008, the ranch-style home in the exclusive gated community of Sherwood Country Club centres on an entry courtyard with a fountain. Inside, the trimmings consist of leather and linen wallpapers, French oak flooring, and onyx fireplaces—details inspired by the family’s favourite boutique hotels around the world. The main floor comprises a lofty great room with bi fold doors that open onto an expansive covered dining terrace; a formal dining room with a fireplace and intricate coffered ceiling; a large open kitchen; and all five bedrooms, including the master suite, which has its own fireplace. On the second level, there is a media room with coffered ceilings.
Tranquil, resort like grounds feature a full outdoor kitchen, a large pool and poolhouse, a gym with a steam room, and a detached guesthouse with an outdoor sitting area.
