A VERY “En Suite” Bathroom

Gaza Ave, East Boldre, Brockenhurst, Hampshire SO42 7WH

This is the “Bedroom with en suite shower” described in the listing.

Um… I’m pretty sure “en suite” means “attached to” not “they’re actually just the same room with zero separation.”

  1. Oh dear me – do click through to the listing, I suspect picture #7 is the “before” shot – of this property’s previous incarnation as the stables down behind this lovely former paddock.

  2. Remind me never to raise horses in the south of England. This place is tiny, has no actual bathroom, and they want…. $650K for it. (O_o)

    Do 500sqft of stables and feed room plus a bit of pasture really merit the price? Or is it because this is in the midst of a national forest? Along with lots of other small to medium sized houses… and lots of open fields… and apparently not much forest.

    Well, if you have your heart set on this listing, there is another shower/toilet in the utility room, along with the washer/dryer hookups and – oh look! – a kitchen sink! Wow… two kitchen sinks. I guess this place really does have everything. [horses not included]

  3. @anodean: I think that’s one of the referenced stables that’s still a stable. That’s not to say the house didn’t use to be a fourth stable…

  4. Putting the entire bathroom in the corner of the bedroom…putting the “bungle” in bungalow….

    Also, I have to note that those are the most formal, stilted driving directions I have ever read. “Proceed in an easterly direction”??

  5. @JMixx: “putting the “bungle” in bungalow….”

    ROFL!!! :D

    I can’t pee when someone’s watching. I’d be sloshing in a day. O.o

  7. @Denita TwoDragons: Well, it is a horse farm. Maybe there’s an extra set of blinders sitting around? Your choice as to whether you or your companion puts them on.

  8. I was watching house hunters the other day, and a couple looked at a house with the same concept with the open bed & bath

  9. @Colleen: Where was the house? And how did the couple react? Did they seem OK with the idea? How did the owner/agent/show host try to “spin” the design?

  10. Hi Emerald, I tried to find the show on hgtv, but couldn’t find it. The couple thought it was very weird with the bathroom open, but they bought the house. I would assume they put walls up, as the bath was at the top of the stairs into the master bedroom. I’ll do more checking around to see if I can find it.

    @Colleen: Thanks Colleen. It would be interesting to see, but don’t sweat it if you can’t find it; don’t put yourself out trying to. It’s good enough for me to know that they, too, thought it was weird, although I’m surprised they bought the house. I guess the rest of it was what they needed/wanted. I certainly hope they have room to put up walls if they want to, or at least dividers of some sort. At the top of the stairs?! Sheesh!!
