Hockey legend Chris Chelios, whose prowess on the ice helped etch his name onto the Stanley Cup three times, is selling a sandy slice of heaven in Malibu.
But hold on to your helmet—the price tag for Chelly’s place isn’t for the faint of heart. We’re talking $75 million.
And as sad as Chelios might feel to let go of this beachfront retreat, he’ll skate away with a mind-boggling profit if he scores the asking price. He purchased the place for just $6 million in 2003, which means he could earn more than $60 million on the sale, factored for improvements and renovations over the decades.
Few homes can compare to this dwelling, with its 90-foot beach frontage, four bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and a guest cottage. Ocean views and a chance to gaze at the Queen’s Necklace (the twinkling lights on the coastline between Malibu and San Pedro look like a necklace at night) put this property in a class all its own.
Huge windows, a glass wall, lofty ceiling, skylights, and bright white paint fill the main living space with light. The kitchen offers a midcentury aesthetic, along with luxe appliances, a breakfast nook, and counter seating.
The main bedroom has a fireplace, sitting area, walk-in closet, and ocean views from the nearby spalike bath. A private deck with its own hot tub is just steps away.
Have excess visitors vying for a stay in paradise? Stash them (luxuriously!) in the one-bedroom guest bungalow, which features a kitchen, living room, and three massive decks—one with another hot tub and a barrel-shaped sauna.
Verdant plantings, a gated entry, and a location at the end of a cul-de-sac all amount to a beachy retreat that is perfect for anyone who wants a sunny and serene vacation estate.
Chelios played in the NHL for 27 seasons, before retiring at the age of 48. He earned 11 All-Star invitations, three Norris trophies, and was named one of the leagues 100 greatest players ever in 2017. After his playing days ended, he moved into management for the Detroit Red Wings. Today he is an NHL analyst for ESPN.
