Canadian hockey player Connor McDavid and his girlfriend, Lauren Kyle, are getting a lot of attention after opening the doors to their ultra-modern Alberta mansion.
During an Architectural Digest tour of their home, located in the Edmonton neighborhood, viewers noticed the house was devoid of any color.
“After seeing Connor McDavid’s house I no longer wish to be rich,” one person wrote on Twitter. “If it means living in a monochromatic home with no personality, how the hell am I supposed to eat pizza rolls in that house?”
“Fantastic, it’s McDavid House Tour time again, when we continue to ask the question: what did colors do to offend these two?” another added.
The extravagant three-story house features several amenities including a basketball court and an expansive wine cellar.
“We live in Edmonton, Alberta, which for people [who] don’t know, that is a very cold place,” McDavid, 24, told Architectural Digest.
The couple began their quest to search for their perfect house after McDavid signed a nine-figure, eight-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers in 2017.
Situated in the upscale Parkview gated community, the home boasts panoramic views of the river valley.
In the basement, next to the bar lounge, they added a sports court, where McDavid spends most of his time rollerblading.
“Connor being the captain, we knew we were going to have to host a lot,” Kyle said. “This house feels like it’s definitely an entertainer’s home.”
“I think our house has kind of become the designated team party house,” the hockey star added.
The home is very minimalistic and modern, with television sets hidden in unexpected places.
“I like that everything’s hidden,” Kyle says. “Even our bar, we have this brass door that slides over [it]. We really wanted everything to stay clean, but then have a little bit of intrigue. Like, What’s behind?”
But other fans joked that this house would be weird to live in alone if the couple ever decided to go their separate ways.
“McDavid’s house is cool in like a hedge fund billionaire who is secretly a serial killer kind of way,” one Twitter user commented.
“Hope to god Connor McDavid n his gf stay together forever cus they break up somebodys gonna have to live alone in that house,” another quipped.
Pegged as the “best hockey player in the world,” McDavid was the first overall pick in the National Hockey League’s 2015 draft, the youngest team captain in NHL history, the three-time league leader in points and two-time winner of the most valuable player award.
