Enter through the gated entry and arrive at a circular motor court with stunning 360-degree panoramic views of the Santa Monica Mountains and Lake Sherwood. Designed by renowned architect Richard Landry, the 13,000-square-foot residence includes 6 beds, 8 baths, and 2 guest houses. Exquisite, elegant craftsmanship is apparent in every room, with no detail overlooked. Amenities include a primary suite with sitting room and dual baths, screening room, fitness facility, billiards room, office, championship tennis court, outdoor entertainment area, wood-burning pizza oven, wood and gas barbecue, and formal gardens.

This isn't just a hockey house. Golf plays a prominent role. Obviously, Sherwood CC is one of SoCal's premier private clubs, a past host of multiple high-profile events. Plus, the world's top-ranked golfer Dustin Johnson, who has two children with Gretzky's daughter, Paulina, has stayed a time or two. There's also a baseball connection. The Los Angeles Times reports that Gretzky sold the house to former baseball star Lenny Dykstra and then bought it back after Dykstra declared bankruptcy.
