The Malibu beach home of retired NHL star Chris Chelios will hit the market at $75 million. The three-time Stanley Cup champion purchased the house for $6 million with his wife, Tracee Chelios, in 2003. Though the couple primarily reside in his native Chicago, they would frequently escape to the Paradise Cove abode for getaways and summers with their family over the years. With their children all grown up and parents themselves now, the hockey star and his wife aim to sell the property and purchase a vacation spot closer to their family, Chelios told Mansion Global.
Located among some of the most luxurious homes in Malibu, the property contains four bedrooms in the main house and a one-bedroom guest bungalow. The main house offers a picturesque unobstructed view of the ocean, while the guesthouse level boasts three large decks, one of which features a hot tub and barrel sauna.

The main house has three levels and spans about 3,795 square feet. There’s a loft-style bedroom on the top floor, which has a view of the ocean. High ceilings create an open and airy space, while skylights and walls of windows flood the home with natural light.
Chelios told Mansion Global he first fell in love with Malibu while playing for the Chicago Blackhawks in the 90s. He started out by renting and went on to own two homes in the area. The hockey great and his wife added some modern touches to their beachfront property over time, including renovations to the windows and bedrooms.
Chelios retired from the NHL in 2010 as one of the longest tenured players in NHL history. He was a defenseman for the Blackhawks, Montreal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings, and Atlanta Thrashers.
