Behold, the “shoilet”.
The so-called shoilet is in a unit on the rental marketand the response from property watchers on social media has been good-natured glee.
“This is ideal in another toilet paper crisis,” one follower posted.
“I’m all about multitasking so it’s a big yes from me,” another said.
“I mostly hate the way I don’t hate it. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all,” a fan commented, quoting a love poem from the late Heath Ledger’s movie Ten Things I Hate About You.
One fan called the layout “next level genius”. Another said: “…maybe it’s a trend no one knew about…”. One follower tagged a friend and said: “hope you include this in the renos”.
The property at 3/24 Deepdene Avenue in Mitchell Park is a neat, older-style, two-bedroom brick home.
The bathroom includes taps for a washing machine.
The location of the shower head and faucets are not shown in the listing pictures, but in earlier photos, when the home was previously on the market, eagle eyes would have spotted a hint of another sliding screen over a bath, beside the glass-shrouded toot.
As such, the loo paper may not get as wet as some social media users feared, and the dunny and shower are indeed separate on closer inspection.
For prospective renters in Adelaide’s severely tight housing market, the giggle-worthy listing is a comical flash in a tough period.
Adelaide is Australia’s tightest rental market with a vacancy rate of 0.3 per cent, according to Domain data.
Adelaide renters have been hit the hardest by swiftly rising prices.
Its quarterly rental price increase is the greatest of all the capitals, at 4.3 per cent, to reach a median rental price of $492.
A healthy and balanced rental market in Australia has a vacancy rate of 3 per cent, real estate experts generally agree.
