NBA Finals – Is having a basketball court on your home buying wish list?

It seems like everyone is watching and talking about the NBA Playoffs.  Though I haven’t been keeping up with all of the games, it got me thinking about how great it would be to have a basketball court right in your neighborhood, or better yet, in or right outside your own home.  Many NBA players have […]

It seems like everyone is watching and talking about the NBA Playoffs.  Though I haven’t been keeping up with all of the games, it got me thinking about how great it would be to have a basketball court right in your neighborhood, or better yet, in or right outside your own home.  Many NBA players have this luxury, but for those of us still searching for our perfect home, perhaps this is something to add to the ultimate wish list!

I checked out coldwellbanker.com for basketball courts, and I found that more than 1,500 homes have a private court or access to one in their neighborhood.  One of the spectacular homes that caught my eye was this estate in Woodway, WA.

This beautiful home not only boasts an indoor basketball court, but also a tennis court, baseball field and space for equestrian facilities.  It sounds like an athlete’s real estate dream.  On top of all of the amenities, the Town of Woodway is only about 25 minutes from Seattle (even though the Sonics are the now in Oklahoma City).  This is definitely what I call the best of both worlds!

Are any of you basketball fans? Let me know if you have an indoor or outdoor basketball court in your home!

    This home looks phenomenal. I would love to have an indoor basketball court, outdoor tennis court and a baseball field. You are exactly right in saying that it is an athletes real estate dream.

    Loks like a fantastic home for a pro basketball player. But I don't think many other people would really put such a high premium on having an indoor basket ball court. It may be money down the drain. Most buyers won't want to pay for such an extravagance.
