Flat has bath in kitchen

A Brighton flat is on the market with a bath in the kitchen and the only toilet on the balcony.

The property in Hanover Street, Brighton, one of the most unusual in the country, is expected to fetch between £100,000 and £130,000 at auction next month.

The four room flat boasts the innovative kitchen space-saving feature of a bath with a hinged worktop, reports the Brighton Argus.

Auction manager Nick Muston, of estate agents Austin Gray, said: “It’s an extraordinary place.

“I couldn’t quite believe it when I went inside. I’ve been in about 15,000 properties in my career as an auctioneer and I’ve never before come across a property with a bath in the kitchen.”

It also features the original outside loo on the balcony, which is the only one that serves the flat.

The building, which is believed to date from the 1820s, has a red brick front and a cast iron staircase and it still has 103 years to run on its lease.

Apart from its obvious quirks, Mr Muston said the property could make a nice project for DIY enthusiasts.

Similar flats in the area that have been brought up to modern living standards have been known to sell in the region of £150,000.
