This mid-century modern at 1226 McGilvra Blvd E is hitting the open market for the first time in more than 30 years and University of Washington basketball fans who want a serious deep dive of street creed might want to pay attention. Doyle Perkins, who starred for the Huskies basketball and tennis teams in the 50's, has owned the house along with his wife Shirley in all that time. Just as it is for UW, it's time for a new generation to take over and they'll be getting a well-maintained 1948 home that comes with one hell of a pool. There's also a lower level that features parking for four cars, a kitchen and a rec room that has certainly heard it's share of classic UW hoops tales. Asking $1.69M, the 5-BR is just blocks from Lake Washington, but offers the chance to dip your toes in the water simply by opening the master suite patio doors.
