This Week's Find: A Double-Double on a Basketball Court
This Week's Find is for all the basketball fanatics out there.
The nearly 5,000 square foot two-bedroom apartment is one of several units converted from a Boys and Girls Club in Norfolk, Virginia's Railroad District last year. One of the apartments adapted the club's basketball court, leaving the bones entirely intact from the rafters to the paint to the hoop.
The majority of the unit consists of the former basketball court which is now an open concept living space, adjacent to a spacious chef's kitchen with a huge island. The living area includes the original painted floors, a hoop, retractable bleachers and a functional scoreboard.

The living quarters occupy the remainder of the court, with each of the bedroom suites nestled behind the kitchen under standard-height walls.
The apartment is available in February; all utilities, cable, internet, and parking are included. Additional details are below.
