It might look like a normal property on the outside but the inside of this 110-year-old South Australian home hides an insane floor plan.

Located in the beachside suburb of Seacliff, the house boasts a staggering 19 bedrooms across its 900 square metres.

But there’s a catch. The house only has four bathrooms - meaning tenants would need to share a toilet and shower with at least four other people.

Initially built in 1910, the property underwent major extensions in the 1980s and became a retirement and nursing home. It was later used for student accommodation.

The most recent owner was an older woman, who lived in the property along with her tenants. Now, it is a deceased estate and the family has changed its classification from commercial to residential.

“We are offering an exclusive opportunity for growing families to create their exceptional forever home, or for the savvy investor to explore the potential within the exceptionally high demand for affordable accommodation in Adelaide,” the listing reads.

In addition to the massive number of bedrooms, the property also features four car spaces, two kitchens and multiple living spaces.

Despite boasting 19 bedrooms, the property is currently home to just five tenants who are paying $185 per room each week, including bills.

The house has been listed by real estate agents Harcourt Packham, who told The Advertiser the property had attracted a large amount of interest and it was expected to fetch more than $1 million.

“We’ve attracted interest from people who are interested in re-establishing it and operating it as a rooming house,” real estate agent James Packham said.

“We have also had supported living, meaning people can live there with their carer.

“On the other end, we’ve had developers who say it’s the perfect block to split into two and build what could be two really beautiful homes.”
