Counter Space or Fully Visible Toilet?

The toilet and shower in one Jamaica Plain home are fully visible from the adjacent room. Many home buyers want more counter space, a landscaped yard, or floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. Precious few are on the hunt for an open-concept bathroom.  Search homes for sale in Flying Horse, Colorado Springs, CO here:  http://www.rehava.com

And yet, one $900,000 Jamaica Plain listing is offering just that: a toilet in full view.

There is no wall — or even a door — between the adjacent room and the spacious bathroom at 302 South St. #2. Instead, the toilet is screened only by a small pane of clouded glass, and the shower walls are completely transparent. Neither will do much to shield your behind from friends and family wandering around the house.

Unusual Layout is Confusing

The odd layout has thoroughly confused people, who are desperate to figure out how and why the design came about.

“Who thought: hey let’s flip this house. And guess what? Let’s put a toilet in the living room. It will be convenient,” one Facebook user wrote underneath a “Zillow Gone Wild” post. Another said they “legitimately” could not wrap their head “around how someone looked at this and said, ‘Yes, this is fine.’”
