Unusual detail in home listing stuns viewers

A home in Boston, USA has gone viral for one unusual feature: a bathroom with no privacy.

The four bedroom house, which is described as a “newly renovated condo” is currently up for US$899,000 (AU$1.16 million).

The house also has three bedrooms, a master suite private rear deck and hardwood floors.

But it was the bathroom that really caught viewers’ attention.

“That open concept went a little bit too far,” one person commented on real estate comedy account Zillow Gone Wild’s Facebook post.

“Let’s take this in. You’re walking along admiring your surroundings when all of a sudden you see someone a) in the shower b) using the very not so private toilet... when you were probably expecting more of a family around the dining table kind of moment. Hope they buy curtains!” added another.

More to the story

Others still queried whether the bathroom plan was designed for people living with disabilities and their carers.

“For anyone who isn't aware...accommodations can look very different for different people; even those with the same disability. While this does look very weird, I think we don't know the whole story. And that's OK, we don't need to know the why behind the accommodation,” one person commented.

America’s house prices are currently climbing at their fastest pace ever, with the median price of a single-family home jumping a staggering 14.9 per cent in the last three months of 2020 to US$315,000 (AU$410,000).

Their rise has been fueled by record low interest rates, as has been the case also in Australia.
