Former NHL bruiser Bryan Allen has put his Parkland estate on the market for $1.79 million.

The waterfront home, at 6635 Northwest 122nd Avenue, is located within the gated Heron Bay golf club community that’s a mere mile away from the Everglades.

Its interiors boast seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, Mediterranean style with a gourmet kitchen and “volume ceilings” in every room, according to its listing. Outside, the home has a sizable pool patio, summer kitchen and a winding red-brick motor court leading to its four-car garage.

Allen, a defense player who’s spent 15 years in the league, bought the home when it was newly developed in 2007 amid his contract with the Florida Panthers. Although he was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2011, Allen hung onto his Parkland estate for another five years before retiring and deciding to sell.

Measuring 6,302 square feet, the home’s asking price breaks down to $284 per square foot. That’s a big decrease from the $2.175 million, or $345 per foot, that he and his wife paid when the home was first built nine years ago.

The listing was announced by DND Associates, an affiliate of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.

Allen isn’t the only hockey player to slice up South Florida’s real estate market in recent years. Petr Nedved, a Czech-Canadian, sold his Icon South Beach condo for nearly $1.9 million amid his retirement in 2014.
