Picture: Adam HeadThe epic Brisbane home that went viral because of its giant skate bowl in the living room has sold – and you’ll never guess what the new owners plan to do with it.Industry sources say the property fetched close to its advertised listing price that was looking for offers over $2.375m.

Picture: Adam Head.Despite the home’s unique selling point, skaters will be devastated to hear the property ended up selling to a local family with little interest in the actual skate bowl itself.Selling agent Drew Davies of Place Estate Agents had been swamped with enquiries for the house, including from professional skateboarders around the world.“They purchased it because they think that pocket of Hamilton … is so quiet, so peaceful —and the size of the block and home,” Mr Davies said.“The might keep it (the skate bowl), they might not.” The multistorey family home is located at 32 Joynt Street in Hamilton.Mr Davies said the home attracted multiple offers and interest from Olympic skateboarders, a local coffee entrepreneur and young dads keen to live out their teenage dreams.“There was far more interest than expected from people who actually wanted it for the skate bowl,” he said.The three-level house at 32 Joynt St, Hamilton, has been one of Australia’s most popular properties on realestate.com.au because of the custom-made skate bowl next to the downstairs kitchen.The house was built by former owner Robert Lewers, who founded many of Brisbane’s skate parks. The unique home has a classic facade. Inside the home has a timeless feel.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market8 hours agoThe previous owner, Justyn Wood, said the skate bowl was one of the reasons he bought the house seven years ago.“I’ve got two boys and I could just see that they would love having it,” Mr Wood said. “It takes up a fair bit of the basement level and it’s a real fun zone for kids. “It’s soundproof from the rest of the house so they can make all the noise they want down there.” The skate bowl in the basement level is soundproof so entertaining in other parts of the home is not an issue while the kids are having fun skating.American professional skateboarder Tom Schaar even used in it when he last toured Australia.Aside from the skate bowl, there is plenty to keep regular homeowners happy, including a parents’ retreat, indoor/outdoor entertaining space and walk-in wardrobes.There are also six bedrooms, three bathrooms, two carparking spaces and the property is situated just four kilometres from the CBD of Brisbane.Families can use the entire basement level as a ‘kids’ area’, as it features a spacious bedroom with built in robe, ensuite and kitchenette all with direct access to the patio and pool.
