It’s an NHL fantasy camp come to life. You can work on your slap shot without ever setting foot outside your property!
A Connecticut compound with a hockey rink skated away with the title of most popular property on realtor.com® this week.
On the market for a little over a month, the one-of-a-kind offering continued to gather up clicks from folks who dream of putting on a power play in the privacy of their own home.
The professional-grade hockey rink even comes complete with its own Zamboni. The property also boasts two guesthouses and a pool, for those who aren’t interested in lacing up the skates.
However, it’s the building built for hard-checking action that makes this a can’t-miss home.
Outside the rink, you took the time to click on a few other extreme homes this week. Interest in a massive 8,400-square-foot barndominium in Iowa spiked, as did clicks for a spectacular 1960s lemon-lime waterfront time capsule in Oklahoma, and a midcentury masterpiece in Michigan perched on the private Lake Helene.
In the wise words of the office philosopher Michael Scott (or was it hockey legend Wayne Gretzky?): “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
With that in mind, we’d like you to take a shot at perusing all of this week’s most popular homes…
10. 305 Old Forge Rd, Pine Grove, PA
Why it’s here: Spanning 5 acres, this property is called the Forge, and is headed up for auction at the end of the month. The six-bedroom main house offers 6,022 square feet of living space and has been sitting vacant for years.
Built in 1800, the home is filled with built-ins, beamed ceilings, exposed stone, and other vintage details. But the bathrooms have seen some quirky upgrades over the years, and this one-of-a-kind property is ready to be reimagined.
9. 21698 Tollhouse Rd, Clovis, CA
Why it’s here: East of Fresno, CA, this nearly 6-acre mountain hideaway includes a five-bedroom home built in 1936.
The two-story house has a fireplace, galley kitchen, remodeled bathrooms, as well as new paint and carpet. Outside, there’s a porch for relaxing.
8. 6325 Meadowwood Ln, Grand Blanc, MI
Why it’s here: Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and sitting on nearly a full acre on Lake Helene, this midcentury marvel is awash in natural wood everywhere. There are also walls of windows and built-ins galore.
The home was built in 1956 using cantilever construction methods, and many of its original details are still in pristine condition. There’s also a basement, which opens onto a rock garden.
7. 670 Reed Rd, Colebrook, NH
Why it’s here: A turnkey buy! All the furnishings are included in the purchase price of this prime 23-acre piece of property with a 3,273-square-foot post-and-beam home built in 2014.
The custom-built home features poplar bark walls, barn boards sourced from local farms, hickory floors, Ponderosa chandeliers, and hand-made furniture.
Other highlights include a fieldstone fireplace, a kitchen with granite island, stone patio, and outdoor kitchen.
6. 2697 Niagara Trl, Logan, IA
Why it’s here: This barndo building was erected in 2000. It’s since been converted into an 8,400-square-foot home with all sorts of high-end creature comforts, like a custom kitchen, home theater, fenced pool area, and home gym.
The nearly 8-acre property offers plenty of room to expand, should a buyer desire to go even bigger. The west section of the home includes a shop, garage, and storage area.
5. 923 Ormewood Ave SE., Atlanta, GA
Why it’s here: Built in 1998 and filled with upgrades, this move-in ready three-bedroom home is designed for indoor-outdoor living.
Surrounded by leafy, mature trees, this classic and crisp home is located just blocks from trails, Zoo Atlanta, and parks.
4. 220 Maple St, Springfield, MA
Why it’s here: Built in 1874, the Loomis-Wesson Home was designed by the firm commissioned for Harvard’s Memorial Hall.
Today, the eight-bedroom residence is in need of a few repairs and some cosmetic touch-ups.
According to the listing details, it’s been well-maintained and updated over the years, but could use a fresh set of eyes.
Original details include wood paneling, French doors, fireplaces, built-ins, and a grand staircase.
3. 2151 London Groveport Rd, Grove City, OH
Why it’s here: Don’t let the low price fool you! You will need to outbid the competition to win this Ohio home. It’s headed to the auction block with an opening bid of just a single buck, and a savvy bidder could walk away with a serious bargain.
The four-bedroom home sits on 7.5 acres, but there are no interior photos to help us even guesstimate how much this place might be worth.
Along with the house, a winning bid will acquire an outbuilding, pasture, and attached garage.
2. 446482 E. Fishermans Rd, Gore, OK
Why it’s here: Open the door and walk back into a different era! This time-capsule home from 1960 isn’t just a vintage decor dream, it’s also a waterfront retreat on Lake Tenkiller.
Along with the purchase price of the three-bedroom lemon-lime fantasy, you can also negotiate to buy all the furnishings.
1. 503 Studio Rd, Stamford, CT
Why it’s here: Put the biscuit in the basket any time you like!
This estate has a lot going for it: 13 private acres, 2 guesthouses, and a pool. However, it’s the full-sized professional hockey rink that has puck-minded dreamers buzzing.
The rink building has everything a buyer would need to live out an NHL fantasy: heated team benches, a lighted scoreboard, home and visitors’ team locker rooms, a sound system for announcements, a viewing lounge, and even a Zamboni to keep the ice in pristine shape.
