House with gravity-defying toilet above hole in bathroom floor

If you're in the market for a new home, this two-bedroom property might just catch your attention - as it's on sale for an absolute steal at just £35,000.

However, you'd be right to be suspicious of the price tag, as the house - located in Chesterfield, Derbyshire - is in need of some major refurbishments, especially in the bathroom, where there's a toilet suspended over a large hole in the floor.

From the outside, the end-of-terrace property clearly needs some work, as the front door and two windows are boarded up, but are missing some of the wooden panels in the panes.

The back garden also needs clearing out, with overgrown plants and rubbish littering the ground.

But inside the property, prospective homebuyers would need to be careful where they stand, with several holes in the floor creating hazards for those viewing the home.

The bathroom is the worst of the rooms with a huge, gaping hole under the basin and toilet. The loo - which has a cracked seat - appears to defy gravity with the room below visible through the missing floorboards.

There are a further four holes in front of the bath, as well as cracked green tiles on the walls, masonry coming through the ceiling, and debris in the bathtub.

Other rooms also have holes in the floor, while the kitchen is dark and dingy - with a toppled-over cooker and a fridge that's facing the wrong way.

The house is being sold by Auction House London on 19 April and is being advertised on Rightmove.

The listing fails to reference the TLC the property needs, as it reads: "The property comprises a two bedroom end of terrace house arranged over ground and first floors.

"The property is situated on a residential road close to local shops and amenities. The open spaces of Kenning Park are within easy reach. Transport links are provided by Chesterfield rail station."

Meanwhile, another house with an interesting bathroom recently went on the market for £42,000 - and the house is in such need of repair that viewings are banned because it's too unsafe.

The bungalow in Walsall, West Midlands, featured a disgusting-looking toilet taped off with a "do not use" warning, and even a missing sink, as well as another room that was cordoned off with red and white tape.
