After nine seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, Canadian hockey defenseman Francois Beauchemin is ready to say goodbye to the Golden State. Earlier this month, he signed a three-year, $13.5 million contract with the Colorado Avalanche and put his Tustin, CA, home on the market.

Listed for just under $3.5 million, the 5,400-square-foot, Mediterranean-style home has plenty of living space -- including 5.5 bathrooms, four bedrooms, a chef's kitchen, an office, and two master suites.

The living room has a soaring two-story ceiling, a large fireplace with marble mantel, and two sets of french doors leading to the outdoor saltwater pool. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, gorgeous wood cabinetry, and a butler's pantry.

The home's second-floor master suite is spacious, with a separate seating area and a bay window overlooking the pool. The master bathroom is full of custom details, including a jetted tub and his-and-her toilets.

As for Beauchemin, we can't say for sure how the Stanley Cup -- winner will fare in Denver, but we're betting he'll score big in the Mile High City.
