'Austin Powers' house with red sofa and 'nightmare' toilet goes on sale for £600,000

A THREE-bedroom family home that looks like the set of an Austin Powers film with its groovy decor has gone on the market for £600,000.

With a bright red sofa and a garish toilet described by one viewer as 'a nightmare', the North London property has been described as "in need of modernisation" by estate agents.

The Camden home is lined with gaudy carpets, a purple bathroom, bright and red kitchen cabinets.

It comes with a guide price of between £600,000 and £625,000, and became a talking point on Twitter.

Author Sarra Manning joked: "This is a gradual retina burn. Also, what the heck is going on with that toilet, please?"

Another person wrote: “Toilet is a nightmare but I'm weirdly into that kitchen!”

Enjoying the property's bizarre layout, one person said: “Oh my god it's full-on Austin Powers!”

A third added: “The bathroom… I’m fascinated by the picture hanging though.

“Why display your art on an empty wall when you can put it above an archway or a shelving unit?"

"These blue daisy hall tiles look amazing though!"

Another commented: "I'm fascinated by these kind of adds, all houses are always so messy!

"And there was my mum back home (The NL) stressing over a bit of mess before the estate agent came to take photos."

Not everyone was shocked by the bizarre decor, one fan tweeted: "Would move in tomorrow and keep exactly as is."

Another pointed out the financial perks, saying: "Bargain for a 3 bed house in that partinof London even if it does need money spending on it!"

On Rightmove, the caption for the property states:  "A charming three bedroom terraced Edwardian home.
