If you ever get tired of playing basketball, you're ready to go for a life-sized checkers or chess match.

4. Seward Park House ($9.5M)
Seattle, WA 98118
Another massive estate, this one has a sport court for not just basketball but also tennis. Plenty more across this 2.36 acre property.
5. 1515 Parkside Dr E ($4.5M)
Seattle, WA 98112
This 2013 Broadmoor home situated to enjoy westerly fairway views of the Broadmoor golf course also comes with its own half-court.
6. 17404 NE 126th Place ($1.4M)
Redmond, WA 98052
This fully-remodeled ranch style home was built in 1990 and we wouldn't be surprised if that's when this funky court was made, too. Teal and purpose were the official colors of the early 90's.
7. 15131 141st Ave SE ($1.5M)
Snohomish, WA 98290
This "deconstructed" basketball court is actually a 168-yard multi-purpose sports room. We'd call it The Thunderdome if everyone around here didn't hate The Thunder.
8. 7215 116th Ave SE ($1.3M)
Newcastle, WA 98056
Just make sure you take that tennis net down first. That's an injury waiting to happen.
9. 10802 103rd Ave NE ($1.25M)

The sad thing is, pretty soon there are gonna be kids who don't know who that is supposed to be a logo of.
10. 8420 Woodholme Rd SW ($1.3M)
Lakewood, WA 98498
Best to make sure you have spotters to make sure the ball doesn't go into the drink, and you probably want to give your neighbors on the other side of the bush a heads up as well.
11. 3708 42nd Ave S ($3.3M)
Seattle, WA 98144
The professionally landscaped gardens, view terraces & sport court combine to provide a perfect backdrop for casual enjoyment or large scale entertaining.
12. 19474 Conway Hill Rd ($550K)
Mount Vernon, WA 98274
A Washington Huskies-themed half-court? Might be enough to convince you to move to Mt. Vernon...
