Gretzky and his wife Janet designed the Thousands Oaks mansion in 2002 with architect-to-the-stars Richard Landry. In 2007, they sold the home to the well known former baseball star Lenny Dykstra, who turned into a financial advisor and trashed the home when he filed for bankruptcy.
Gretzky repurchased the mansion for $14.9 million in 2018 and refurbished it back to its original state. In only three years, the home is better and even more stunning than the day it was built. It has a high level of craftsmanship throughout the mansion as everything is detailed, even the subdued wall panels.
The 6.5-acre property overlooks Lake Sherwood and the Santa Monica Mountains. Every angle of the mansion shows its best features. From the mansion looking out, it also has the best views, probably one of California’s best. What makes the home great on the inside is there is so much to do. It compares to an inside mall with different rooms for different activities and hobbies. You will never get bored.
