We all know a rundown property is a ‘renovator’s delight’. What, though, do you call a home that for reasons unknown has a shower and toilet in the kitchen?

And how do you talk someone into buying a house that is so poorly designed that residents need to drive up no fewer than three steps if they want to access the garage?
Gasp in wonder at the homes below… and be thankful that they were somebody’s else’s problem.
