A three-bedroom house with its own skate bowl inside is back on the market after four years, a television appearance and a price rise.
The pretty 19th-century building, formerly a youth club, is in the Norfolk village of Terrington St Clement and was converted by keen skateboarder Rob Marsden.
He has owned the building for the past 17 years and built the 26ft by 39ft wooden skate bowl over six months.
Marsden, who restores classic Range Rovers for a living, says he hadn’t intended to use the entire space for skateboarding but the ramps “just took over the room”.
The mini skate park is on the ground floor of the property and has a four-metre vert wall, three 4ft quarter pipes and the bowl.
Also on the ground floor is an open-plan living space with wooden flooring, skylight and a wood burner, a bedroom and a shower room with underfloor heating and floor tiles reclaimed from the public records library in London.
There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, one of which features an internal window overlooking the skate park.
The property first went on the market four years ago for £220,000 but the skateboarding fanatic found he wasn’t actually ready to move once the enquiries started flooding in. “He thought he was ready to leave the bowl and he wasn’t,” says Kate Mamo-Lewis, managing director of Attik, who is selling the property.
The house was then featured on the Netflix show Amazing Interiors in 2018 and it’s now back on the market for £240,000.
Once again, the property has attracted enormous interest from skate fans from as far afield as Scotland and has received multiple offers.
“Next time I value a skate bowl I’ll be adding a couple of noughts on to the price!” says Mamo-Lewis.
Marsden is definitely ready to move on this time and has bought a larger fixer-upper with his fiancée, with space for him to run his business from – although apparently he has no plans to build another skate bowl.
Terrington St Clement is near King’s Lynn and has a post office, pub and shop.
The house is for sale for £240,000 through Attik Estate Agents.
