4 toilets in 1 bathroom? Realtor Explains Viral House Design

(NEXSTAR) – This gracious home just outside of Milwaukee offers modern amenities, plenty of historic charm, and four side-by-side toilets in the same bathroom.

A Wisconsin real estate ad has gone viral thanks to its usual largest bathroom layout, which features four side-by-side toilets — with no dividers — arranged directly in front of four separate sinks.

The house, built in 1851, did not originally have four toilets in the same room. This unique addition came later, after the original owners donated the South Milwaukee home to the Girl Scouts around 1920 or 1930. During their ownership, the organization moved forward and made several additions to better accommodate their needs, including the “infamous bathroom,” according to listing agent Jane Dichristopher of Mahler Sotheby’s International Realty.

The house has changed hands twice since that time, but the four-toilet bathroom has remained.

“Both owners have really retained a lot of the historic integrity of the house,” explained Dichristopher, who said the house would also have been part of the Underground Railroad in the 1800s. original features. It’s lovely.”

The house listing – known locally as Hawthorn House – began to gain attention earlier this week, after being posted on the @ZillowGoneWild Instagram account. Most reviewers were left baffled by the bathroom, with one user saying she ‘had nightmares like this’ and another saying: ‘It was such a normal house until she didn’t. was more.”

Dichristopher, however, kindly pointed out that there are three more bathrooms between the main house and the included master suite, which means there is no reason to believe that prospective owners would be in any way or another forced into a common pot time scenario.

Despite the restroom situation, and perhaps even because of it, Dichristopher said the historic house is attracting a lot of interest. As of this week, there was also a pending offer.

“I had a ton of people reaching out to me, and we had a lot of screenings initially because of marketing,” she laughed, “and dressers.”
