Phil Esposito played eight seasons with the Boston Bruins, winning the Stanley Cup in 1970 and 1972. Though the hall-of-famer may still be angry that he was traded to the New York Rangers in November 1975, he ended up with quite a nice house in Bedford Corners, N.Y. (He would also be upset to know that he lost in’s #GOATMadness bracket of Boston’s greatest-ever athletes.)

Though he no longer owns 173 Guard Hill Road, it was built for him in 1985. He retired from the Rangers in 1981 and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1984. After his retirement, he was the coach and general manager for the Rangers and later founded the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The 4.5-acre property, which has four bedrooms, 7.5 baths, and 6,720 square feet of living space, is listed for $2,049,000.

Inside, you’ll find an open floor plan with lots of natural light. The first floor boasts two stone fireplaces, an updated kitchen, dining and family rooms, a sunroom, a powder room, and a porch.

The large master suite offers a fireplace, a dressing area, a sitting room, two walk-in closets, and two bathrooms.

On the lower level, there are game and media rooms, two baths, and more. Outside, you’ll find landscaped grounds with mature trees, a pool, and a putting green.
