Look away, it's hideous



Congratulations, Anna! You have found the Most Foul Toilet Ever Featured in a Real Estate Listing! Your prize is one fuzzy toilet-seat cover (pick it up in Irvington at your leisure).


MLS 2506859, since I can't get a link that works. But you might be happier that way, really.

Didn't I see that toilet in "Trainspotting"?

Linnee said...

Tell me that this is a restroom at a gas station. Please. I couldn't see the listing. This can't be in a house. Please. It's a gas station where 30 years ago the owner's wife tried to pretty it up with lid and tank covers. (I won't dare to speculate on the original color.)

Sara said...

Sorry, linnee. It's a house. A real house, where people live. I couldn't make the link work, but it's MLS 2506859.

Why oh why did I watch this before going to bed?? I'll have nightmares all night.

Oh my goodness....can't be in a house....wow.

"House needs TLC" they ACTUALLY said "House needs TLC". Seriously..."TLC" doesn't even come close to what this house needs!

This must be the (cess) pool bath out by the cabana.

Holy CRAP.

I've been looking at your blog and laughing every day now for weeks. And I'm not a realtor either! But today you got me with this, OH MAN! ha.ha. So gross. You are very funny sara! My theory is that someone used that toilet as a wash bin for a muddy bucket. They tried to flush mud. It's just too much gross to be the other.

This just makes me want to take some bleach into my bathroom and scrub everything down. Scrub and srub and scrub. Just so it never ever looks like this picture.

I believe it's a real house. I went through one like it several years back. Photos:

::shudder in horror::

Hey, is that a paper towel dispenser just outside the door?

I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

Now come on. That's nothing a tactical nuclear warhead wouldn't clear up.

Hilary said...

I looked up that MLS and it said the house was CLEAN. They didn't have any pictures besides the frontal view.

By the way, I found your blog by accident and I LOVE YOU!!! Thanks for the awesomeness.

I thought i have seen worst possible toilets ever in a city (i dont want to name it here and sound offending the place)...But your post beats all that...

shieldmaiden said...

Having lived in New Jersey, I am in no way suprised by this. Not in the slightest.

ipa said...

Is that somebody's sock on the side of that toilet seat - is it - is it? Argggggggggggggggggg!

Lauren said...

When i saw this all i could say was
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww

Angela said...

Seriously the grossest picture ever.

You can find the whole listing on www.gsmls.com. Select Essex County, Irvington Twp, and price range of $75K to $100K. It's the 8th house down. It's also listed on www.realtor.com and www.kw.com but the realtors wisely stopped short of posting the foul toilet photo.

Just.Gross. (shudder)

Sara said...

I guess some real estate agents have the sense not to use the photo, but you can see it in more context here:

It's from an older listing (the price has gone down since then), so it probably won't be up long.

THAT IS DISGUSTING!

Stephanie said...

From all the other posting pictures, it looks like someone came in armed with a variety of cleaning supplies... Started to clean, and then realized they did not bring enough cleaning product. Crestfallen, but not ready to give up, they ventured into the basement to see if there might be any extra supplies left down there... saw the toilet... and ran screaming from the house, never to be seen again.

What's wrong with it?

jen shikami said...

"needs TLC"?

Sure, if that stands for "Total Lavatory Cremation."

Hell, I'll pay them just to bulldoze the place and then burn the rubble as a sanitation method.

I will never complain about the condition my kids keep their bathroom and bedrooms again. At least their rooms are spotless in comparison.

Diana and Fam said...

Horrible! Take it off, my eyes hurt....

JO said...

pls tell me nobody's using this???

Elizabeth said...

Oh. Dear. God. I thought my current bathroom was nasty when I got here, but now...

Julie said...

This reminds me of something I saw underneath Mexico City, back in 1982. Seriously.

What I would REALLY like to see is that clean-freak guy... who is it? The one who cleans his bathroom with rubbing alcohol and then lights a match, and WHOOSH, everything is sanitized?

Yeah, I would love to see him take on this bathroom!

Erin said...

oh my gosh... in the last link you posted with more pictures did anyone else see where they murdered Tweety Bird and nailed him to the wall. Psychos must surly have inhabited this "house"!

Karen said...

I think I have been to that bathroom. That is why I travel with my own travel trailer, so I can use my own bathroom, every time.

Suka said...

Quick, pass the bleach...

...for my eyes.

iloveupstate.com said...

Wow, that's even worse than the bathroom at Joann fabric on Long Island...

Here's another pic of the house:

Looks like they have the right idea there, with the pile of rags and gas can.

Hey,could you guys quit talking shit about my toilet? It's only used when company comes over anyway.

Theresa said...

I think this is the grossest photo you've posted yet. I'm feeling sick now. It's my greatest fear, furry toilets. I bet those yellow covers where white when they put them on there.

Carolyn said...

From looking at the other photos of this house, I'm certain something realllllly bad happened here.

Kerry said...

The worst thing is...this listing isn't up anymore. So that means it's either off the market or *gulp* somebody BOUGHT it!
