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?

Surreal Estate: $5.8 million for a Collingwood hockey haven with its own rink and sports bar

Location: Collingwood Price: $5,850,000 Bedrooms: 3+1 Bathrooms: 3+1 Parking spaces: 11 Agent: Daena Allen-Noxon


The place

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 history
flex-col gap-1 md:gap-3 lg:w-[calc]">
In 2013, a family of four built two houses on this huge property: one for living and one for leisure. They fashioned the main home as a winter chalet and built a rink in the second one to host birthday parties, friendly hockey games and fundraisers for charities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada—all while celebrating the country’s favourite sport. Now that the kids have moved out, the parents are looking to sell the entire complex and downsize. Realtor Daena Allen-Noxon has fielded several calls from families with hockey-playing kids and even a few from hockey academies looking for new training facilities. “The scarcity of ice time in Ontario adds to the property’s appeal,” says Allen-Noxon.

The tour

The main house borders the Osler Bluff Ski Club and has access to a network of forested trails for skiing and snowshoeing. It has a sprawling front deck and an attached garage.

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.

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.
