The ‘unlivable’ property in Isleworth, west London, appeared on the Zoopla real estate website late last month and, despite its dismal condition, caught the eye of a potential buyer.
A run down apartment with a ‘Trainspotting bathroom’ has been shockingly offered for £ 290,000 – leaving people in despair.
The ‘unlivable’ property in Isleworth, west London, appeared on the Zoopla real estate website late last month and, despite its condition, caught the eye of a potential buyer.
It is noted that the two bedroom apartment “needs some work” with the kitchen and bathroom particularly run down and covered in disgusting thick grime.
Social media users even compared the spooky bathroom to the renowned ‘Scotland’s worst toilet’ scene from Danny Boyle’s cult classic ‘Trainspotting’.
People are desperate in the housing market given the exorbitant price of the apartment which is described as “unlivable”.
What did the worst toilet you’ve ever seen look like? Let us know in the comments
While no floor plan is provided, the 500-square-foot property appears to have five bedrooms and a hallway.
The rooms include two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom.
Both bedrooms are unfurnished and dated with exposed floors and unflattering curtains.
The kitchen itself is disused and dirty, with only a dirty sink in sight – harboring what appears to be mold and rust on its surfaces.
The floor is chipped and stained and the curtains are discolored and brittle.
The bathroom also sets a grim scene, with the sink, toilet, and tub all covered in thick dirt.
The tub is stained with grime crawling over the skin, with one social media user describing it as “like a corpse is sitting in it.”
Finders International listed the property, writing: “This apartment offers excellent living space located on a quiet residential street with oversized rooms.
“The apartment has the added benefit of a private rear garden and private entrance, a great buying opportunity to rent.
“The property requires work including a new kitchen and bathroom and tours highly recommended.”
The property was shared on social media, attracting over 1,000 likes with hundreds of comments from users disgusted by the dirty apartment.
One user said, “Oh wow, that’s a whole Trainspotting bathroom suite!”
Another joked, “I guess the price is due to the fact that this is the mold where the penicillin was first discovered?”
A third user commented: “Looks like a corpse has been sitting in this tub for a few months and was only recently removed.”
And another replied, “How on earth is such an unlivable place so expensive?”
