A home in Wilkinson, Indiana, has taken the phrase “ball is life” to soaring new heights.

This four-bedroom, three-bathroom house, which is on the real estate market for $299,000, was once a high school gymnasium and you can still see traces of it everywhere.

Photos show a pristine kitchen, living room and dining area on what once was a former basketball court complete with visible lines including the free throw and three point lines. Then of course, you have your normal, run-of-the-mill bedrooms and bathrooms throughout the rest of the fascinating property.
