Surreal Estate: $5.8 million for a Collingwood hockey haven with its own rink and sports bar
What country estate would be complete without a steam room, a viewing gallery and bar, 11 parking spaces and 25 acres of land?
Parking spaces: 11

A one-of-a-kind two-house family estate with a sports bar, a dressing room and a 14-by-29-metre ice rink. Standing on a 25-acre lot in the ski town of Collingwood, this hockey fan’s paradise has been featured on Sportsnet’s Hometown Hockey with Ron MacLean.
The foyer serves as a mudroom for snowy boots and leads to the powder room.
Moving down the hall reveals the living room. The owners placed their dining table here to watch evening hockey games on that big-screen TV above the fireplace.
Here’s the kitchen, which comes with stainless steel appliances, plenty of storage, a marble peninsula and a bespoke hanging hood fan.
This reverse view shows off the custom oak cabinets, which accommodate a second sink and a coffee station.
Upstairs, there are five bedrooms. The main suite overlooks the front yard.
This is the main bathroom, equipped with an elevated marble tub flanked by corner windows and a glass shower with a rainfall head.
Another bedroom features a massive bunk bed unit.
The home also has a finished basement with a fireplace, a guest bedroom and, yes, another giant TV.
The adjacent games room leads to the manicured side yard and deck via french doors.
Here’s a view of the entire property. Next up: an inside look at the leisure house up the path.
The leisure house’s crown jewel is its wood-and-polyethylene rink—covered with ice in the winter and transformed into a pickleball court for the summer.
Guests can take in games from this viewing gallery with its own kitchen, bar, TV and stone fireplace.
Another view of the gallery.
Above the rink is a dramatic loft with a wall-to-wall couch, an 80-inch TV and a ping-pong table as well as a gabled recess that currently holds an office.
Post-game, players can relax in this state-of-the-art steam room.
Here, even the bathrooms are peak Canadiana.
Next to the rink are a few essential amenities: a stainless steel fridge for Gatorade and a pinball machine to loosen up pre-game.
The owners built a full dressing room, with rubber floors for skates and enough stations to host an entire hockey team.
And, yes, the place comes with a brand-new ice resurfacer.
