House hunters horrified by bedroom with exposed toilet in it


House hunters have been left ‘horrified’ by a property that features an exposed toilet inside the bedroom.

The three-bedroom home in Norwich is up for sale for an asking price of £425,000 and has been listed on the property website Rightmove.

But lots of potential viewers have been put off by its bizarre en-suite set up.

The top floor of the property, on Bishop Bridge Road, comprises of a large master bedroom suite with a bathroom tucked in the corner.

The only issue is that the sink, shower and toilet are completely exposed by glass walls.

Estate agents Sefftons have listed the “glass ensuite” as one of the key features of the home.

They explain that the unusual layout is “designed to immerse you in the fantastic views”, as the master suite overlooks the River Wensum at the rear of the home.

But online commenters were at best unsure of the set up, with one joking that it would give them “loo anxiety”.

Glass walls leave the toilet completely exposed

After spotting the listing, Sarah Weatherley, 50, tweeted: “Today on Rightmove: Impress/horrify guests with a glass-walled khazi.”

Her tweet sparked a reaction from fellow property enthusiasts with one user named Dave saying he “hopes it’s the sort of glass that magically goes frosted at the flick of a switch.”

Speaking about the property, Sarah said: “I have been looking quite intensively on Rightmove recently because I’m looking to move to be with my partner.

“As my partner and I aren’t particularly tied to one area, I’ve been comparing what you can get for the same money in various areas.

“This house is on for about £425,000 and is in Norwich. The house itself looks like it’s in a stunning location with lovely views so I clicked on it.”

People aren’t a fan of the strange bathroom set up

She continued: “The ensuite was something of a surprise – I did a double-take and had to zoom in for another look.

“I’m not sure I’d want to live with that bathroom – and my partner was pretty weirded out by it too.

“The house is lovely but we’d have to do something about those glass walls – maybe make the glass more opaque.”

The advert describes the three-storey property as an “exceptional elevated period home with stunning river and cathedral views” in Norwich city centre.

The historic East Anglian city is said to have “everything you would desire of a vibrant regional capital and has a real sense of history preserved” and has been voted in the top ten happiest places to live in Britain.

The advert also states that the house boasts “full height picture windows to the master suite”, three reception rooms and an “elevated riverside garden and al-fresco dining area”.

Despite all of this, house hunters seem to remain put off by the glass-walled ensuite, with Andrea Pattinson saying: “Errrrr it’s a NO from me!!!”

David Harrison added: “Had one of those in a hotel room in Berlin. Was weird even as the only occupant. Brr.”

The bedroom has a beautiful view over the garden and the river

A spokesperson for Sefftons said: “With so much attention and more than ten viewings booked within hours of launching to market, it seems everybody wants a loo with a view.

“Yes, you could frost the glass or screen the room, but where’s the fun in that.

“Designed for a fun loving couple who enjoy all the city has to offer, combined ‘an exceptional view, in more ways than one’.”
