“It is a true privilege to live in a Gretzky home,” says Nicole Van Parys, the family’s long-standing listing agent. “Sheer elegance, exquisite taste, and first-class comfort can only describe this stunning estate.”

The experience begins with a lakeside drive towards the tall iron gates opening to the enchanting Sherwood Country Club community. A true escape from city life, with ducks waddling along the luxurious lawns and residents traveling via golf cart, a few turns through the serene neighborhood brings you to the Gretzky’s magnificent estate. Envisioned and brought to life by the wife of the legendary hockey star, Janet Gretzky designed the home to embody the lavish features of their favorite boutique hotels from their travels around the world.

Luscious landscaping and a tranquil water fountain lead to the exquisite double front doors. Then, stepping inside one is instantly transported to a place that put simply, can only be described as one-of-a-kind. The definition of ultimate luxury, every inch of the property is detailed to perfection with only the most timeless and eclectic pieces, depicting Janet’s meticulous persona and the couple’s unwavering class. With inspirations and décor from top tier interior designers such as Ralph Lauren, Nancy Corzine, Sherle Wagner, and Rose Tarlow, every room boasts an elaborate style of its own while maintaining a sense of togetherness. The home is grand and spacious, yet warm, and welcoming – the perfect nest for the sports-loving, family-oriented Gretzky clan.

Brilliantly designed to incorporate a rare and unparalleled indoor-outdoor duality, the exterior wall of floor-to-ceiling windows completely comes apart, creating a seamless transition into the true oasis that awaits you outside. A large, resort-like swimming pool covers most of the ground, across which is an al fresco kitchen and dining area, an indoor gym, complete with a ballet bar, disco ball décor, and sauna, followed by the French-country style guest house that welcomes you with its calming hues of white and blue. And last, but certainly not least, proudly displayed is a one of a kind David Murdock sculpture.

Handpicked to be part of the distinguished Sherwood Estates by golf legend, Jack Nicklaus, the Gretzkys, all avid sports players, recall much of their favorite pastimes golfing together as a family at the community’s exclusive courses, designed by Nicklaus himself. At the center of this Westlake Village hideaway are two world-renowned country clubs that offer extravagant dining, banquet halls, and outdoor terraces with lakeside views, in addition to the spectacular 18-hole and Par 3 golf courses for members to enjoy. Set beneath the majestic Santa Monica mountains, and home to some of greater Los Angeles’ most affluent and elite residents, Sherwood is the epitome of first-class Southern California living, with unrivaled luxury, privacy, and sophistication. The radiant reflection of an architectural masterpiece, perfectly blending chic modern design and classic elegance, with its luminous aura and decadent details, the Gretzky estate is a true Sherwood treasure.
