Pavel Datsyuk’s Home For Sale, Complete With…
Let's start with this: This is not a fixer-upper that you can pick up for a song. The former Detroit Red Wings superstar's Bloomfield Hills home is a custom built paradise, complete with all the amenities, including one that may or may not surprise you.
Yes, it has bedrooms, kitchen, several bathrooms, all those. (The Detroit Free-Press says about the master bathroom: "The owners’ bath is — you guessed it — lacquered zebra wood, granite and porcelain tile. It has a vanity table, two cabinets with sinks and his-and-her toilet rooms." Here's a video of what's inside the home.
But it also comes with a panic room. A what? Panic rooms sound like a fairly recent development. By definition (via wikipedia) it's a "fortified room that is installed in a private residence or business to provide a safe shelter, or hiding place, for the inhabitants in the event of a break in, home invasion, tornado, terror attack, or other threat. Safe rooms usually contain communications equipment, so that law enforcement authorities can be contacted." When you're a multi-millionaire superstar athlete and from a former Communist country, I guess it comes with the territory.
The rest of the house is nice. Five bedrooms, nice bathrooms (full and half), The Free-Press says Datsyuk put about $10,000,000 into it, so the near $5 million dollar price tag really does suggest this is a steal at that price.
