An indoor basketball court three stories tall is one of the features of this 13-room Colonial in Woodbury on the market for $1.579 million.

Built in 1978, the home was once occupied by a professional racquetball player. The indoor racquetball court that was part of the home's interior was converted to an indoor basketball court by its current owner.

The home has six bedrooms, four bathrooms and a half-bath, an updated kitchen with Wolf appliances and radiant-heated floors in the grand foyer. There's an in-ground gunite pool with a hot tub in the shape of a racket on the one-acre property.

Additional amenities include 10-zone heat, four-zone central air-conditioning, a two-car garage and two-car carport.

As an incentive to potential buyers, seller Jackie Colton is paying out $25,000 a year for the next three years to go toward the $52,000-a-year tax bill as she grieves the taxes.

The listing agent is Belinda Wiseman of Laffey Fine Homes.
