This $1.2 million Toronto house has two toilets in one bathroom

Is being able to hold hands with another person while you both simultaneously use the toilet something you've ever dreamed about? Or had nightmares about, perhaps?

A newly-listed detached home in Toronto's lovely St. Clair West Village would theoretically allow you to do just that, as well as take a shower just steps away in one of two identical, side-by-side stalls with flimsy accordion closet doors.

There's never been a shortage of strange, overpriced houses (or even houses with strangely-placed toilets) for sale in Toronto, but a recent uptick in demand for detached properties is turning this city's real estate market into a spectacle that we simply can't look away from.

The house is described as having "beautiful features" with large windows and "lots of natural light."

The kitchen is dated, to say the least, but there are three refrigerators on-site if you need extra space for cold stuff.

What makes the property most noteworthy, given its condition, is its exorbitant price tag: $1,229,900.
