Hockey Hall of Famer and fan favorite Teemu Selanne has put his 6-acre Coto de Caza estate on the market for $6.9 million.
Selanne, nicknamed the “Finnish Flash,” was a member of the Anaheim Ducks’ 2007 Stanley Cup championship team.
The Coto de Caza spread is set amidst sprawling lawns in the luxe Los Ranchos neighborhood. In addition to a 9,400-square-foot Mediterranean home, there’s a barn, riding area, tennis court and a rock swimming pool with several waterfalls.
A private gate leads up a long driveway to the house, with four bedroom suites and two additional rooms that can be converted into bedrooms.
Fireplaces warm spaces throughout the home, including formal living and dining rooms, a family room and a pair of offices.
The kitchen contains a large breakfast nook, and in the bar and entertainment center, French doors open to a veranda. There are six garages, and the barn includes a couple of flats – one a two-bedroom – with kitchenettes.
One piece of real estate here is just for kids: They can play house in a cute doll house on the grounds of the estate, says Mariann Cordova of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the listing agent.
Selanne was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in November 2017.
“Teemu Selanne blew away the NHL with his breakaway speed from the moment he jumped into the league, captivating it with his goal-scoring touch and magnetic personality,” wrote Eric Stephens in the Orange County Register when he was selected for the honor a few months earlier. “Those aspects of the multifaceted lover of fast cars and uptempo hockey instantly made him a fan favorite.”
Selanne put off his retirement on an annual basis, often announcing his comebacks in funny videos on the team’s official website.
“Whether he was playing in the NHL or in international competition, Teemu Selanne always found a way to excel,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said last year. “A relentless competitor, a Stanley Cup champion and a global ambassador for the game, Teemu now adds the ultimate hockey recognition to his resume.”
Selanne retired in 2014, finishing 11th all-time with 684 goals and 15th with 1,457 points. His No. 8 jersey was retired by the Ducks.
In addition to his Selanne Steak House in Laguna Beach, he is slated to open The Penalty Box, a more casual eatery, at SteelCraft Garden Grove this fall.
