Home theaters and pools? How passe. For those on the cutting edge of luxury, indoor sports courts are the new amenity. The super-wealthy have to do something with their money and enormous houses, so why not convert an entire room into a court, complete with polished wood floors, hoops, and – in some cases – a scoreboard?
Naturally, a lot of these courts are really beautiful; they imagine to eschew the whole “high school gymnasium” feel by retaining the homes’ structures, in many cases. For example, homeowners used a barn to house the b-ball court; while it definitely looks more Hoosiers than haybales, the high ceilings are still intact, giving it a unique feel. Of course, there’s also a cozy fireplace for those who aren’t getting sweaty.
