“Full-on Austin Powers” house with red sofas and “nightmare” toilet goes on sale


A three-bedroom family home has gone on the market for £600,000 -and viewers of the incredible property have been transported back in time.

The property in Camden, north London, is fitted out with red sofas, 70s gaudy carpets and a very purple bathroom that looks like it was designed by Austin Powers.

It’s now on the market with estate agents Purplebricks, which describes it as a “charming three bedroom terraced Edwardian home…in need of modernisation.”

The incredible house comes with a guide price of £600,000 – £625,000_ and is already being talked about on Twitter thanks to its unusual interior.

Author Sarra Manning joked: “This is a gradual retina burn. Also, what the heck is going on with that toilet, please?”

Lots of people were taken by the unusual bathroom decor – which features a purple tub and sink, along with a highly unusual toilet.

On Twitter, one woman joked: “Toilet is a nightmare but I’m weirdly into that kitchen!”

Another commented: “Oh my god it’s full-on Austin Powers!”

A third added: “The bathroom… I’m fascinated by the picture hanging though.

“Why display your art on an empty wall when you can put it above an archway or a shelving unit?”

The entrance to the house shows the incredible original wooden staircase and tiled floor and features lots of artwork on the walls.

The main living room is decorated with a long red corner-sofa, and a small coffee table and lots of lovely portraits on the wall along with a giant heart wall hanging made from straw.

The room opens up into a dining area with a hanging chandelier and a wooden cabinet packed with family trinkets.

Red cabinets and wooden panelling in the kitchen make it look like it’s from a 1970s catalogue, with a red mat finishing off the look.

One of the main bedrooms upstairs features an incredibly gaudy red carpet, which is complemented by a yellow bed cover and a red wall hanging.

Another bedroom with a double bed is equally colourful, with a purple duvet clashing with the bright red carpet, while the curtains look like they belong to a different interior design style.

The final bedroom is more muted, with some dated 70’s style wallpaper and a single sofa bed.

The property listing on Rightmove states: “A charming three bedroom terraced Edwardian home.

“Boasting over 1,060sq ft of internal floor space. Located equidistance to Bounds Green and Bowes Park stations.

“The layout of the house is particularly suited to modern family living.

“Offering bright and spacious accommodation and is well presented throughout however in need of modernisation.”

People were divided over the house on Twitter, with one woman raving: “These blue daisy hall tiles look amazing though!”

Another commented: “I’m fascinated by these kind of adds, all houses are always so messy!

“And there was my mum back home (The NL) stressing over a bit of mess before the estate agent came to take photos.”

One fan tweeted: “Would move in tomorrow and keep exactly as is.”

Another added: “Bargain for a 3 bed house in that part of London even if it does need money spending on it!”

But one woman held back, as she replied: “That is a bold choice…”
