For Half-A-Million Bucks, You Could Buy An Old High School Gymnasium Home In Indiana


When it comes to investing in real estate, this Indiana property is a slam dunk.

If you are like me, you’ve always had a dream of buying an old school and renovating it to make my childhood self’s dream home. All that really requires is for there to be a basketball court included in the home in some form or fashion.

So what better way to make that dream come true than buying an old high school gymnasium in a state that is almost synonymous with basketball (see the movie Hoosiers, Indiana University)? For those that are like me, you are probably trying to figure out how you could move around your assets to buy this place, which is on the market for a cool $599,977 (because putting it at $600,000 would be too overwhelming).

The listing has gone viral on social media, and is described on Zillow as:

“Discover (this) one-of-a-kind property in Wilkinson, IN. This historic gym transformed into a modern residence offers a rare blend of historical charm and contemporary comforts.

Featuring meticulous upgrades, a serene location, and a rich community history, this home is an exceptional find for those seeking a unique living experience. As featured on NBC Chicago and IndyStar, it’s a must-see for homebuyers and history enthusiasts alike.”

The post above showcases the old school gymnasium portion of the unique listing, but there’s actually more than meets the eye.

It appears that half of the building has been renovated just for living quarters, which features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, exercise facility, indoor mezzanine, and a newly remodeled kitchen with old gym floor as the hardwood.

This home absolutely screams Indiana, and would be a must for those who love to shoot some hoops. There are plenty of people on social media that are jumping at the bit to try and “score” this gym-turned-house. Personally, I think they should just have a one-v-one tournament to see who gets to claim the listing as theirs. As they often say on the basketball courts, winner stays.

Others online had their own commentary on the unique living space, sending out replies to the post saying:
