DH and I stopped at an open house because it was a house we had been curious about and it had been on the market for quite a while.
It was an older house and the current owners had converted a closet on the first floor to a powder room. The door on this powder room faced the front door of the house, and the toilet was right inside the door. So, if you were sitting on the toilet and didn’t close the bathroom door, anyone who came up on the porch would be staring right at you.
The upstairs bathroom was rather narrow. The sink was on the left, the bathtub was on the right, and the toilet was in the back of the bathroom. The owners had taken a large slab of marble (about 18” wide) and fastened it to the edge of the bathtub. I guess they were trying to make it into a bench or something. This only served to make the bathroom more narrow and you had to turn sideways and shimmy into the bathroom sideways to get back to the toilet.
My favorite feature, though, was this. There was a closet in the upstairs hall which backed against the end of the bathroom that had the plumbing for the bathtub. Inside the closet was a pipe, running from the bathroom. Attached to the pipe was a garden hose, all coiled up inside the closet. When I asked the real estate agent what that was for, he explained that Mrs. Owner liked to light candles and leave them all over the place and Mr. Owner had a large dog who tended to knock over said candles. So Mr. Owner installed the hose in the closet as his own “fire extinguisher” and he was extremely proud of that feature.
