Just in time for the playoffs, this West Newton Hill home is perfect for any Boston Celtics fan looking to perfect a jump-shot.

Built in 2010, 23 Forest Ave. is a five-bed, seven-bath home that features a 1,500-square-foot indoor basketball court with 20-foot ceilings on the lower level. It also functions as a golf simulator or batting cage, which comes with the sale of the home. The home is on the market for $6,795,000.


“The unique quality is having the ultimate play space for a family,” said Mitchel Bernstein of MB Associates, Coldwell Banker Realty, who has the listing. “He bought the house 12 years ago and had two young boys. They’re a golf-enthusiast family.”
