Wayne Gretzky, legendary hockey player, former head coach and team executive, and his wife, Janet, have sold their home in the Sherwood Country Club area of Westlake Village for $4.2 million.

The sale represents a hat trick of sorts for the Hall of Famer. It is the third home he’s sold in the affluent gated community in the last two years.

Set on a half-acre of grounds, the Italianate-vibe two-story backs up to the 16th fairway of the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. Beyond the course are mountain and valley views in nearly every direction.

The home features four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in its nearly 5,600 square feet of interiors. Dark wood floors create visual contrast against white walls in the great room and library/den. The chef’s kitchen brings a clean traditional ambience, with Thassos white marble countertops and a sunburst-style chandelier.

Sliding glass doors off the common areas open to a covered lounge with bar seating and an outdoor kitchen. A swimming pool, lawn and terraced grounds complete the setting.

Gretzky, 57, earned the nickname “The Great One” during a career that spanned two decades.
