A high-school basketball gym in Wilkinson, Indiana was bought by a couple 20 years ago and transformed into a livable home. The house is now up for sale on Realtor.com for $299,000.
The building has two distinct halves: One part looks like a home, and the other half is still a gym.
Imagine having your own personal old-school basketball gym inside your home, which also looks and smells like a high-school gym.
Basketball Gym Turned Into Home For Sale In Indiana
An Indiana couple spent 20 years turning this high-school gym into a home and the house is now on the market for $299,000.
The gym building used to be part of Eastern Hancock High School. It sits on a 3.6-acre lot at the edge of the town of Wilkinson, Indiana. It comes with half of the original basketball court.
The couple Jeff and Christi Broady purchased the gym/house in 2002 for $85,000.
The building is now split into two halves. One half still looks like a gym, equipt with the court, bleachers, and high ceilings. The other half looks like a home, with segmented rooms and two levels.
The owners were able to build walls inside and create new living spaces, such as a kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. They also added windows and doors that led to the other half of the building, where they kept the original basketball gym.
Wilson said he had received four offers thus far. "Not unusual in this market," he said. "There have been well over 20 showings on it."
"The coolest thing is more than half of the gym floor is still gym — the original floor, the original bleachers, the original basketball goal," Wilson added. "I graduated from that gym in 1969. I could tell you where I was sitting."
There is one thing any prospective buyer should know, though: "It still smells like a gym," Wilson said.
