It’s been two decades since Mark Messiness last stepped foot in the NHL.
Now, he’s getting a new home.
The legendary hockey player has purchased the beautiful, 3,500-square-foot, six-bedroom home on the shores of Lake Ontario on the Canadian side of the lake.
Messier’s wife, Linda, and son, Drew, will move in next year.
They bought the mansion in 2015.
“We are so thrilled to have this opportunity to share this beautiful home with my son, son-in-law and daughter-in.
I have never had a home of this caliber.
I am very excited to be able to share it with Drew and my wife, who will join me on the beautiful lakefront grounds,” said Messier.
The home sits on two acres with a lake in between and is surrounded by woods.
It has three bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room and a garage.
The main floor will be open to the public, and there is also a master suite with four bedrooms, two baths and a private bathroom.
It’s not clear if there will be a swimming pool.
The house has been purchased for the couple by the Canadian Art Decade Foundation, which will renovate the property in the future.
Messiers son, Ryan, is the executive director of the foundation.
He said the family is proud to be associated with this great organization.
“I think this will be the last time that we will have a residence that is of this magnitude, of this design and of this quality, he said.
Messiness has also purchased a 7,600-square foot mansion in Toronto for his son.
The estate is on a 5.5 acre site and has been remodeled for the home.
