The wallpaper is reminiscent of a retro Playboy magazine — and this is a bathroom for guests.A house with custom-made wallpaper of naked ladies in its bathroom is set to go under the hammer this weekend — and is expected to draw quite the crowd.The home at 179 Flockton St, Everton Park, has a powder room which is covered from floor to ceiling in wallpaper featuring retro semi-nude women posing seductively.

It even has its own squash court.Mr Armstrong said they initially had the house for sale by private treaty but decided to change to an auction after they received interest from both owner occupiers and developers. And a sauna, to, ya’know, wind down after your game of squash.He said he was expecting a number of registered bidders on the day and had a hunch an owner occupier might outbid a developer at the end of the day, although with an auction you can never be sure.“A couple of people want to live there and run a business out of it,” he said.“Most of them want to keep it in its current style and potentially do some cosmetic work internally.”The house will go to auction this Saturday, March 16 at 2pm.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:44Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:44 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p288p288p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Thank you for your input. +4 Vote up Vote down concerned citizen · 268 weeks ago I have a friend whose son (10 years old) had some fireworks get in his eye last year. He was fortunate not to lose his eye or his vision, but it took many months of antibiotics and seeing a professional. The eye doctor said that they see lots of eye injuries this time of year. This year we are seriously considering eye protection as well as ear protection for our children. Accidents happen, but a little prevention goes a long way. Thanks Chief for the fire safety reminders as well. Have fun and be safe! Report Reply 0 replies · active 268 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
