    Hockey’s “Great One” Wayne Gretzky is selling his Scottsdale, Arizona home for $3,395,000. Located at 6436 East Gainsborough Road in an exclusive gated community with only 12 other homes, Gretzky’s desert oasis would make the perfect escape for anyone seeking luxurious amenities and solitude.

    According to property records we peeped and previous media reports, Wayne and his wife Janet bought the newly-built home in 2003 for about $2 million.

    Now for sale for the first time in a decade, the Gretzky’s home is a beautiful Mediterranean-style mansion with incredible views of Camelback Mountain. Secluded and very private, the home is beautifully finished and perfect for entertaining large parties or intimate gatherings.  The main house includes 3 bedrooms with bathrooms in each, an elegant separate guest bath, a wood-beamed office and top-of-the-line kitchen appliances.

    The property also includes a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom detached, separate casita located near the property’s glistening pool.

    In other Gretzky property news, in 2007, he sold his Thousand Oaks, CA home to Lenny Dykstra for $18.5 million. Dykstra had a personal life crisis of epic proportions that included a brush with the law, and he eventually lost the home to foreclosure. Once considered the “crown jewel” of Thousand Oaks, the home has a $14.5 million-dollar price tag and is still currently seeking a buyer.

      The massive Thousand Oaks home, custom built by hockey legend Wayne Gretzky and later owned by disgraced baseball star Lenny Dykstra, is for sale for $14,995,000. Dykstra never sold the home to the current owners–he lost the amazing home to foreclosure after a string of personal discretions left him in high water and without the funds to cover the mortgage.

      Gretzky was the original owner of the custom, Richard Landry-designed estate, but Dykstra took over when the hockey star and his family moved to another incredible estate in Arizona. According to reports, Dykstra purchased the compound in 2007, furnishings and all, at the peak of the housing bubble for $18.5 million. The baseball great then tried to flip the home  for $24.5 million in 2008, according to Internet reports, before going through a period of trouble with the law and his creditors. Shortly thereafter, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom mansion–considered by some to be the crown jewel of the Sherwood development–fell into disrepair. It was game over for Dykstra when the home was finally purchased at auction in November 2010.

      Now, the home has been remodeled, restored, and placed back on the market. It’s also gained a couple of well-known neighbors in the past few years: Pete Sampras and Britney Spears! So, to all prospective buyers looking for an incredible home with A-list neighbors…step up to the plate!

      The sprawling estate features six-bedrooms, eight-bathrooms, and over 13,000 square feet of living space, with 2 guest houses. Exquisite attention to detail and artisan craftsmanship is found in each and every room. Amenities include a master suite with sitting room and dual baths, screening room, fitness facility, office, championship tennis court, outdoor entertainment area, wood-burning pizza oven, wood and gas BBQ, promenade terraces, gardens, and an incredible pool.
