The estate of former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra has returned to the Multiple Listing Service, this time priced at $14.9 million.

Dykstra, who filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the summer, had purchased the 6.5-acre compound in Thousand Oaks from hockey great Wayne Gretzky in 2007 for $18.5 million. The property was in default when Dykstra filed for bankruptcy, which derailed a potential foreclosure auction.

The mansion came on the market in September 2008 at $24.9 million and after two price reductions was increased to $25 million a year later.

The Richard Landry-designed main house has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 12,713 square feet of living space. The home also has a receiving parlor, a formal dining room, a billiards room and a state-of-the-art screening room.


The listing agent this time is Karen Crystal of Ewing & Associates, Sotheby’s International Realty, Agoura Hills, according to the MLS.
