A French chateau-inspired mansion owned by former New Jersey Devils hockey star Ilya Kovalchuk, once on the market for $18 million, can now be had for $2 million less.
The veteran NHL player’s 25-room home at 10 Frick Drive in Alpine now has a $15.99 million price tag, down over 10% from the $17.99 million asking price when it was put on the market last year.
The stucco and limestone mansion has three kitchens and 14 bathrooms, in addition to the banquet-sized dining room, great room, family room and living room. The estate is surrounded by landscaped gardens with a pergola.
Other features of the home are a lounge, theater, massage room, exercise room, dry sauna, wine and tasting room, wet bar, two game rooms, an arts and crafts room, a library and an elevator that runs from the basement to the third floor.
The home was built after Kovalchuk, who now plays for the Washington Capitals, and his wife, Nicole Andrazajtis, purchased a 2-acre plot in 2010 while he played for the Devils.
The land was once part of the 60-acre Frick Estate. A short distance away on the former estate is the Stone Mansion, which has been on the market more than a decade and has an asking price of $32 million.
The price cut was first reported by Realtor.com. The listing agent for the mansion is Michelle Pais of Signature Realty.
