AN UNUSUAL Bournemouth property is newly available on the market.

This Grade II-listed building, which dates from the early 1900s, lies in a prominent position at the junction of Shelbourne Close and Holdenhurst Road, Springbourne.

Amazingly, it's been offered for just £25,000 and you'll be flushed with success as there's no chain.

But it'll take a bit of work before you're ready to plug the kettle in and make up the bed. That's because it's a public toilet.

The historic public convenience is due to be sold via an 'informal tender' process by the council. Would-be buyers have until March 29 to submit their best and final offers via Sibbett Gregory.

Estate agents say the "characterful" gentlemen's toilets have potential for other uses, subject to planning permission.

The building, which is traditional solid brick with Crittall windows, was used as a public toilet until it was permanently closed in 2017. It has a concrete domed roof and access is via a single entranceway down a staircase to a below-street level.

Agents believe there are mains water, sewage, electricity and gas connections available.

The tenure is listed as 'freehold with vacant possession', luckily enough.

Offers must be submitted by 2pm on the closing day. No warranties are made as to the facility's physical condition.
