Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher reduce asking price for Ottawa home
TORONTO — Country superstar Carrie Underwood and her Canadian husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, have reduced the asking price for their Ottawa home.
The custom-built mansion, which has been on the market for close to a year, is now listed at $1.95 million — down from $2.2 million this past summer.

The couple hasn’t lived in the Spruce Ridge Road home since February 2011, when Fisher was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators.
Sitting on 11 acres of wooded land at the end of a winding driveway, the house has five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
It boasts an open concept living room, main floor master bedroom, enclosed porch with a fireplace, wine cellar, home theatre and gym and a two-sided fireplace.
The property is a 10-minute drive from the Canadian Tire Centre, where the Senators play.
Paul Rushforth Real Estate has the listing.
Fisher and Underwood moved into their dream home in late 2010 — only months before Fisher was traded.
Surrounded by trees and protected by a gated driveway, the residence offered the famous couple far more privacy than their previous home less than 10 kilometres away on Corkery Road.
In January 2011 — only two weeks before being traded to the Predators — Fisher filed an application with the municipality to purchase the dead-end portion of McGee Side Road that divided the property.
Although they no longer live in Ottawa, Fisher, 33, and Underwood, 30, frequently visit family and friends in his hometown, Peterborough, Ont.
In its latest issue, the National Enquirer claims Underwood and Fisher are heading for a split because their different schedules keep them apart. The tabloid also alleges Underwood is cheating with country singer Brad Paisley. (Paisley’s wife has laughed off the report.)
Fisher and Underwood met at her 2008 concert in Ottawa and were engaged a year later. They tied the knot in July 2010.
