Homebuyers were stunned by a bizarre feature in this three-bedroom ocean-view home: ‘How disgusting!’
- A house on the south coast of New South Wales had a strange detail
- It included a toilet and bath installed next to the main bed.
Potential homebuyers have been baffled by a strange detail in a suburban home that sees a toilet, tub and shower inside the master bedroom.
The property in the town of Manyana, on the south coast of New South Wales, has been described as the “ideal family home or holiday retreat”.
The modern two-story house features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two lock-up garages, an open-plan living room, and a newly renovated interior.
It is located on a lush 556 m2 block of land with stunning views of the sea.
But it is the view from the main bedroom that has become the main topic of conversation.
An odd detail in a suburban home sees a toilet, tub, shower, and sink just steps from the foot of the master bed.
The room contains a toilet, bathtub, shower and sink just a few steps from the foot of the bed with no wall dividing the two areas.
The toilet has been positioned to face directly towards where the next owners of the property will sleep.
From the bedroom to the open bathroom, the floor changes from carpet to tile.
Writer and editor Amber Robinson first shared a photo of the room on Twitter, writing: “When did we start adding toilets to rooms?”
‘There are already 3 other bathrooms in the house! There is absolutely no reason to need one in the master bedroom as well,” she added.
Other Twitter users also expressed surprise and disgust at the detail.
‘Gross! Bath sprays where you sleep, plus sharing EVERYTHING with your partner. And wake them up to download the chain”, said one user.
Another commented: ‘The floor plan says bathroom. No. That’s a bed in a bath. Gross.
I can’t even deal with en-suite bathrooms. Do not place a bath near one of the sleepers. We don’t even do that when we camp out,” added a third.
However, some people suggested that the design was a good idea to help people who have mobility issues or a disability.
The detail was included within this home in Manyana on the south coast of NSW, which has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two lock-up garages, a newly renovated interior and stunning sea views.
Estate agent Brendan Shipp told news.com.au that the previous owners decided to open up the space within the master bedroom by getting rid of the previous divider.
Real estate agent Brendan Shipp of McGrath said the home’s previous owners decided to get rid of the wall that divided the bathroom from the sleeping area.
“The sellers wanted to open up the master bedroom and make it more flowing to get more light,” he said. news.com.au
“It is not normal, but (nor) is it something negative, it is a point of difference.
He added that the design choice was something he had only seen inside a property beforehand.
Despite the unusual detail, at least six people have inquired about the house.
The property is scheduled to go up for auction on April 12.
