The house that NBA and Seattle Sonics legend Lenny Wilkens had built in the Bridle Trails area of Bellevue and lived in for a number of years during the team’s glory days is on the market. (It no longer is owned by Wilkens.)

The five-bedroom, 4.5 bath, 5,311-square-foot house has been listed for sale at $1,398 million. It was built in 1978, the year Wilkens coached the Sonics to the NBA Finals. They won the title the following year.

The former Wilkens house is placed on a private lane and features walls of windows and expansive rooms. The home also features an outdoor hot tub and tennis court.
