Basement bathroom - what do you think?
This is proclaimed to be, and listed, as a bathroom.
The sink, the toilet and the tub all work and drain properly. So, technically, this is a bathroom! All it needs is a toilet seat!
And someone is using it!
Wonderful! What a pleasant place to begin the day!
Aside from its angled, off-center position against the wall, the bath tub could be used to wash dogs or something. And the sink is a laundry sink, which could be used to clean things like paint brushes or boots. There was no exhaust fan though, which was a tad of a problem because you might notice the sink did not have a trap, so the full benefit of the drain experience was alive and well! Good luck with that problem!
But a bathroom? Not to me!
My recommendation: it is amazing what things "make the cut" as "features" on a house! This "bathroom" makes this a three-bathroom house! When making the MLS search, and if there is the desire for three bathrooms, this house would show up! Not sure what potential buyers have thought about it before our inspection, but my clients were, um, not impressed.
