Thousand Oaks Home

Hockey’s greatest superstar, Wayne Gretzky, has listed his Thousand Oaks Home for $22.9 million. Wayne and his wife, Janet, worked with architect-to-the-stars Richard Landry to design the home in 2002. After selling it to former baseball-star-turned-financial-advisor Lenny Dykstra in 2007, who trashed it after filing bankruptcy, the Gretzkys repurchased it in 2018 for $14.9 million and turned it back into a stunning celebrity home, now back on the market even better than it was originally.

Sited on 6.5 acres on a crest with 360-degree views of the Santa Monica Mountains and Lake Sherwood, the symmetry of the home is impressive from every angle. More of a complex of structures than just a home, it encompasses two detached guest houses – one with a full gym, a tennis court, huge pool and formally landscaped gardens perfectly matched to the home’s Colonial Revival-style.

Measuring 13,276 square feet of living space, there are a total of six bedrooms and eight baths. The grand entrance opens to a foyer with the wide-curving staircase, perfect for a bride’s wedding or family-reunion photographs, into a large living room with huge windows and spectacular long-distance views.
