However, the real estate listing for a Boston home has garnered a lot of attention on social media for seemingly including an open-concept bathroom.
The house, located on South St. in Boston, Massachusetts, was featured on the Zillow Gone Wild page. A post on the group’s Facebook page shows the exterior of the house, which is a multi-family home that appears to have been recently renovated.
The main focus of the post, however, is a shot of a second-floor room that appears to have a bathroom with no hidden walls in one of the corners.
Aside from the bathroom, the bedroom appears to have French doors separating it from the rest of the house and also opens onto a second-floor balcony.

According to the listing by Zillow, which has the home priced at $ 899,000, the property sold for $ 418,100 in 2019. The listing also lists the home as foreclosed.
On Facebook, some users speculated that this could be a mistake. Others wondered if the bathroom could have been designed for a disabled person, but it was also noted that it is on the second floor of a building with no elevator and does not include a handrail.
One user wrote: “I live near this house. It’s a change, and the open-concept bathroom was added and updated after its purchase in 2019. It’s not for disability reasons; they probably ran out of money before opening a door. “
