Wayne and Janet Gretzky are officially selling their massive Thousand Oaks, California mansion that has been the background for so many family internet moments over the years. Wayne and Janet, both 59 with five grown children, are clearly at that age when they are considering downsizing from a 13,000 sq. ft. mega-mansion to something a little more manageable.
The Gretzkys are unloading this masterpiece for $22,900,000. There’s no need to worry about the future of the neighborhood. This house is inside the gates of Sherwood Country Club. All your neighbors have Gretzky-like money, just like you do. Take a look at a Google Map of the neighborhood. You also won’t have to worry about someone putting up a pre-fab shed from Home Depot. They’re clearly not allowed in his ‘hood.
