NHL legend Wayne Gretzky has sold his California mansion once again. Per TMZ’s reporting, Gretzky was finally able to sell his home after it sat on the market for seven months. This marks the second time the 60-year-old has sold the house.
Reportedly, Eric and Joanna Miller purchased the Thousand Oaks Property for $17.6 million. He listed the home for $23 million in October 2020.
Wayne Gretzky built the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom house back in 2002, then sold it to former MLB player Lenny Dykstra in 2007. At the time, Gretzky and his wife, Janet, moved to Arizona, where he coached the Phoenix Coyotes. However, after Dykstra filed for bankruptcy in 2009, he was forced into foreclosure in 2010.
More than a decade later, when the property came back on the market, the couple couldn’t resist the appeal of the home that they had built for themselves, so they bought back the estate.
In 2013, Gretzky re-bought the home for $13.5 million. Now, Eric and Joanna Miller and will get the keys to the hockey legend’s former pad. The house comes with a screening room, gym, game room, office, tennis court, outdoor entertainment area, pizza oven, and wood and gas barbecue.
Joanna Miller is the daughter of former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. NBA banned Sterling for life after private recordings of him making racists comments were made public.

Currently, the home sits on 6.5 acres with 360-degree views of the Santa Monica Mountains and Lake Sherwood. Yet, the interior is just as stunning as the exterior.
While Wayne Gretzky lived in the home, he made extensive renovations to the kitchen — which now opens up into the family room. The Gretzkys likely spent much time entertaining guests in their kitchen throughout their time there.
Upon entering the home, guests will see a large foyer “with the wide-curving staircase, perfect for a bride’s wedding or family-reunion photographs.”
The property also includes two guest houses that feature a “full gym, a tennis court, huge pool and formally landscaped gardens.” It also measures “3,276 square feet of living space,” and “there are a total of six bedrooms and eight baths.” For cold nights, guests can warm up next to six fireplaces spread all across the home.
Renowned architect Richard Landry designed the house and is famous for his high-end residential projects. To date, Landry has created over 500 private homes for stars such as Michael Bolton, Rod Stewart, and Tom Brady.
