About seven years ago, Wild defenseman Ryan Suter had an off-season home built 25 miles from Madison, Wis.

He spared little expense.

But now the house is on the market for $4.5 million, and a post from last month on realtor.com about it  caught our attention over the weekend.

"In 2011, Suter—a Madison, WI, native—had the 12,000-square-foot mansion custom-built, including a home theater, tennis court, billiard room, and wine cellar. Covered spaces near the outdoor pool are designed to weather a chilly spring or fall."

Did we mention the home sits on 120 acres of land?

The listing agent, Paul Handle, said: “The home's positioned high up on a hill from a long driveway that comes up to the highway from a gate. It was really built to capture the views.”

Handle also noted that Suter's hockey schedule means the home “ may be seven years old, but it’s only been lived in for (the equivalent of) about a year."

So why leave? Handle explained that Suter's children are older and there's more reason for them to live closer to Madison, where they reside just outside the city.

If you're interested (or just curious), the full story is here.

And here's the MLS listing.
