Mike Green’s career on the ice may be winding down, but he may be just starting a career as a house-flipper. A 1914 rowhouse in the Kalorama Triangle neighborhood of Northwest Washington came on the market a couple of months ago, after being renovated by the NHL hockey player and his wife, Courtney Parrie Green.
“My wife and I have a lot of ties to Washington,” Green wrote in an email. “Having kids, we realized how much we wanted to share our ties and explore the city from within. We enjoy the process of home renovations. Although we have listed it, we want to be in the D.C. area. If we do sell, we will look for another project immediately.”
When the veteran defenseman left the Washington Capitals in 2015 for the Detroit Red Wings, he sold his house in the Franklin Park neighborhood of McLean, Va., for $2.8 million. He bought this rowhouse in 2017 for $1.3 million.
The house has high ceilings, hardwood floors laid in a chevron pattern and skylights to bring natural light into the space. The kitchen has a long island with seating and windows on two sides. The second-floor master bedroom suite is at the front of the house. There are two more bedrooms and a bathroom on that level. The top floor is office or studio space with bench seating. The lower level rec room has a wet bar. The laundry room has stainless-steel counters and shelving. The rear deck is made of rot- and insect-resistant ipe wood, and the garage parking comes with an electric car charger.
Injuries and illness have hampered Green’s career in recent years. The 34-year-old had neck surgery in 2018, then developed a liver condition and more recently missed games because of an upper-body injury.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom, 2,164-square-foot house is listed at $4.6 million.
