A converted church has just hit the real estate market and there is one unexpected feature that has buyers excited to relive their childhood.

From the outside the house, in England’s Norfolk, looks like any other but on the inside the semi-detached house homes an entire skate park on the ground floor.

Listed for about AU$430,000, the three-bedroom home features all the basics such as a modern kitchen, a dining area and a tidy backyard.

But owner Rob Marsden added a personal touch with four-metre vertical wall drops and 1.2 quarter pipes all designed for the love of skateboarding.

“I’m 45, I have a broken back and I’m a middle-aged shredder,” Mr Marsden told The Sun.

The mechanic built the indoor skate park so he could enjoy his hobby from home and developed a following on Facebook by live-streaming events at the unique home.

But after a recent injury, he has decided it’s time to sell.

"I never thought I would leave this place but I found a place out in the country that I have bought,” he told The Sun.

The avid skateboarder doesn’t plan to quit his hobby completely though, revealing he will build an outdoor skate bowl at his new residence.

"I’ll make a concrete feature there that I’ll skate — just not inside this time,” he added.

It’s not the first time a skateboarder has taken their hobby to extremes.

In Brisbane a home with an indoor skate bowl went viral in July when it was listed on the market for $2.375 million.

The home sold to a family who was more interested in the location in picturesque Hamilton rather than the skate bowl.
