I guess things are tough even for the ultra-rich: former New Jersey Devils star Ilya Kovalchuk has marked down the price of his Alpine mansion, reducing the price to $14.9 million after originally going on the market for $17.9 million in 2019.

Does that make it more in your price range?

According to NorthJersey.com, the sprawling mansion boasts 22,000 square feet and features such amenities as two pools, an elevator that goes from the third floor to the basement, two game rooms, a spa, a home theater, a sauna room, a library, and three kitchens along with the expected massive dining room, great room, family room, living room and 14 bathrooms.

The “Bob Zampolini designed” European Colonial manor is on the “only single-family guard gated street in Bergen County.” Not only is the house massive, it also has a four-car garage.

The property taxes on the home are reportedly $44,000 a year, which is actually kind of low for a house of that size. That’s because Alpine has no high school or much in the way in municipal services.

You might remember that Kovalchuk signed a 15-year, $100 million contract (after his 17-year deal was nullified by the NHL). He went back to Russia leaving some $77 million on the table.

The new construction mansion sits on two acres; the lot next to it which is 5.7 acres and is next to the Alpine Country Club golf course, is also for sale.
