House of the Week: Wayne Gretzky’s Thousand Oaks Estate (VIDEO)
1072 Newbern Ct, Thousand Oaks, CA 91361
For sale: $14.995 million
It makes sense that “The Great One” would have a great house.
Wayne Gretzky’s custom estate, which is currently listed for sale, is situated in Thousand Oaks on 6.5 acres within the gated Sherwood Country Club — an exclusive secured community home to several people seeking privacy, including Britney Spears.
“The privacy of the property and community is a major draw for celebrity buyers,” explained Joyce Rey, Executive Director, Coldwell Banker Previews International, Greater LA. “The location is superb, with the Pacific Coast and famed Malibu only a short 20-minute drive, and only 35 miles from Los Angeles.”
The home was built by Wayne Gretzky and architect Richard Landry. Landry, commonly referred to as the “architect to the stars,” has worked with other big names to design custom homes, including Mark Wahlberg, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, and Sylvester Stallone.
Gretzky’s home measures 10,815 square feet, but that doesn’t include square footage of the two detached guest houses, one of which has a full gym. A circular motor court leads to the front entrance of the home, where the grand entry opens to dark wood floors and white walls with intricate plaster detailing. An open floor plan connects the gourmet kitchen with the family room. The home has 6 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, as well as a home theater room, state-of-the-art surveillance and security systems, a wood-burning pizza oven, pool and sunken tennis court.
Built in 2002, the home has already had a large renovation, in which the master his-and-her baths were completely redone and the kitchen was expanded and remodeled and opened up to the family room. New floors, landscaping, new brick patios were added and the pool and tennis courts were both resurfaced.
