Retired Hockey Champion Chris Chelios Looks to Score $75M for His Oceanfront Malibu Pad
Former NHL star Chris Chelios, a three-time Stanley Cup champion, is selling this Malibu beachfront pad for a staggering $75 million. With 90 feet of beach frontage in Malibu’s exclusive Paradise Cove, the listing could easily rank among the world’s ultimate vacation homes.
Chelios, who is a Chicago native, and his wife Tracee scored big time when they purchased the home in 2003 for $6 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. Following a hockey game against the Los Angeles Kings in the mid-1990s, the defenseman met actor Tony Danza, who introduced Chelios to the Malibu lifestyle. After renting in the area, the couple decided to purchase a vacation home to use in the off-season. Eventually, Chelios heard about this dreamy property coming onto the market—and it turned out the seller was a friend of a friend. “He gave me the deal of the century,” Chelios told WSJ.
The 3,795-square-foot home was originally built in the 1980s, but the Chelios family has since updated it. With three decks, the contemporary home is centered around ocean views, which are abundant. The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom residence has an additional guest bungalow, because who wouldn’t want to visit?
Chelios retired in 2010, has four adult children, and is now a grandfather. The former hockey star told the WSJ his goal is to buy a vacation home closer to family, perhaps a similar residence on Lake Michigan.
