Do You Know Why it's called a Throne Room?

By
Real Estate Agent with CENTURY 21 American Homes

It never fails.

Most days I can pretty easily assume that I've seen it all in real estate.  There really isn't much that surprises me anymore when it comes to what you find in some houses.

Still, there comes that rare moment when I learn that there are still some things that can still surprise me.  So, the other day, while visiting a few foreclosures, I ran across what you see below.  I had to take a photo because I knew no one would believe it otherwise.

At least now, we all know why it's called "The Throne Room."  Hope you enjoy!

Ya gotta wonder what goes through the mind that would have someone building it like that:-)  It proves if you stay in the real estate profession any length of time at all, you will come across some pretty amazing things:-)

Ha that is too funny!  What were they thinking!!  My sister bought a house in Toronto that had an odd bathroom in the basement - with a throne toilet.  It was just weird!!!

Good grief!!  That place would never work for me.  What a nightmare for someone who barely makes it there in time as it is.

I stared at this for quite awhile trying to think if there was a reason for this and couldn't think of one. Truly strange is all I could surmise. cheers cvc

Yep, it's in the basement, Anna.  An unfinished, unheated basement!

But Leslie, once there, you get to look over your domain :)

Some people just want to rise above it all, Curtis

Uneven ground under the house or just a bad plumbing job?  Interesting.  We do see some strange things in this business don't we.  To truly be the throne room though, should probably be painted gold! :-)

This one definitely falls into the 'bad plumbing job' category, Sandra

We see these in basements and they are more than a bit awkward.
