Weirdest thing I ever seen:

SFR in Compton, CA. First floor bathroom has 2 entry doors from hallways on opposite sides of the house. The shower/tub in the middle of the bathroom has double sliding doors. There is 1 sink and 1 toilet on each side of the bathroom. The shower/tub in the middle of the bathroom opens on both sides creating 1.00...2.00...1.50...2.50 bathrooms ???

How's the market gonna react to this feature (LOL) :new_smile-l:

I grew up in a house with my parents and three siblings, and only one stool. Back then I would have thought a bathroom as you described was a luxury compared to dancing around in the hallway waiting for my turn.:)

Is there any privacy from the other entry / toilet? If not, I would call it 1.0. If there is privacy (separated by the tub and sliding doors), then I would call it 1.5.

That's called a Jack and Jill bath. Ever see the Brady Bunch?

I see Jack and Jill bathrooms in many higher end houses.

I see jack and jill baths every other day, but never with two toilets...that's a new one for me. Would Jack want to pee with Jill right next to him? :rof:

I certainly hope they are separated by a door or SOMETHING!

All: I think this is a "Jack & Jack" or a "Jill & Jill" instead (LOL).

Ralph: With either of the two sliding glass slower doors closed the illusion exists of a full bathroom, one on either side of the shower; and it's certainly not a luxury feature although it's really difficult to describe the configuration in writing..

Liz and the Elf are on target...they are quite popular on both the East End and Gold Coast areas of Long Island in the Higher end homes...

Yes, it is a Jack and Jill bath and it equates to 1.5 baths.

I don't think he's describing a jack and jill bath as we know it. I'm thinking the bathtub separates the sides of the bathroom (you step through the tub to get from one side to the other instead of simply walking around the tub).

I had one just like this a few months ago and posted about it on the forum.
