Pick-up hockey fans are largely locked out of the favourite Canadian pastime because of the COVID-19 pandemic in many parts of the country.
But deep pocketed enthusiasts are in luck, because there’s a way to bring the game home. As long as you’re willing to move across the border to Stamford, Connecticut.
A $7,690,000 ($9,836,778 in Canadian dollars) house is for sale, with an indoor hockey rink and its own Zamboni. Not even Wayne Gretzky’s mega mansion for sale can boast amenities like that.
Contact William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty if you want to make an offer.
Until then, scroll through for a look inside a home that’s more like a hockey lovers retreat.
It sits on 13 private and picturesque acres with lots of trees and streams that brings nature to you. Property taxes will cost you around $985 (CAD$1,259) a month.
It was built in 2004 and has 18,168 square feet of living space. There are 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.
If you want to hold a mini-tournament once COVID-19 is over and worry about where to put all those players, don’t worry, there are 2 guests houses on the property.
The indoor rink has heated team benches, lighted scoreboard, and a fully integrated sound system for calling the scores or providing the soundtrack for the figure skater in you.
There are home team and visitors’ locker rooms.
And a viewing lounge with a view of the entire rink, complete with a bar and a TV in case you feel like tuning out of the action on the ice.
Don’t worry about finding someone to keep the rink in tip top shape. It comes with it’s own Zamboni! Which just might be even more fun than playing hockey.
If you want to take a dip after you’re done playing, or if hockey just isn’t your thing, there’s a heated pool to cool off in a hot Connecticut summer.
