Alexander Mogilny, a retired professional hockey player who defected to the United States from the Soviet Union, is selling his Malibu beach house for $14.75 million.
The former National Hockey League star and his wife bought the oceanfront home from Barry Manilow in 2012 for $5.5 million, property records show.
According to property records, the celebrity-pedigreed house has five bedrooms, four-and-half bathrooms and 3,696-square-feet of living space. The listing agent, David Solomon of The Agency, said the contemporary home also features a two-story living room and floor-to-ceiling glass windows that offer unobstructed views of the coast, from Point Dume to Santa Monica.
The house was first listed last October by another agent for $16.8 million. The listing was removed this March.
“The owners also came to me when they tried to sell this house last year, but I didn’t agree with the listing price at that time,” Mr. Solomon said. “The property came on too high last time, and I believe now we have the right price to sell.” According to Mr. Solomon, the new asking price will be $14.75 million, and the new listing will be released later Friday or next Monday.
Mr. Solomon didn’t comment on why the former NHL star is selling this oceanfront home. But if the house is sold at $14.75 million—nearly three times the previous sale price, it’s going be a big payday for the Mogilnys.
Mr. Mogilny is the first Soviet Union defector to play in the NHL. After winning the 2000 Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils, he retired from professional hockey in 2006.
Mr. Mogilny couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.
