The luxury home of former Ottawa Senators captain Jason Spezza is up for sale for $1.7 million.

Tony Rhodes, an agent at Coldwell Banker Rhodes & Company, confirmed that the property at 905 Hare Ave. is owned by Spezza, who was traded to the Dallas Stars earlier this month.

Hare Avenue is a tree-lined street located off Carling Avenue between Maitland and Woodroffe avenues.

The two-storey home is listed for $1,690,000 and includes eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, a two-car garage, in-ground pool and finished basement, among other things.

"Open concept design and layout create a bright, cheerful living space with the huge eat-in kitchen as the centrepoint of the home," reads the Coldwell Banker Rhodes & Company listing.

The custom home was built in 2001.
