House has enough plug sockets for everyone in the street
If having enough plug sockets ranks highly among your concerns for a new home – this could be the house for you.
A five-bedroom detached house on the market in Eastcote, England has gone viral for having around 320 sockets dotted along its walls, metro.co.uk reported.
Photos from inside the property show the outlets placed haphazardly on nearly every side of the bedrooms and lounge.
One room appears to contain at least 40 sockets alone.
The ceilings are also dotted with down-lights that don’t appear to follow any set pattern, as well as several spotlights fixed on the walls and pointed in different directions.
It could be considered a gadget-lover’s dream house – but with a selling price of £1,350,000, it might be cheaper to get an extension cable.
Screenwriter Toby Davies shared a link to the house’s advert on his Twitter, with the caption: “Thinking about buying this house, but I’m not sure it has enough plug sockets.”
Since then, the post has gained nearly 6,000 likes, with other social media users equally
baffled by the amount of sockets.
One person mused: “Were they running the CIA from the front room?” while another asked: “Did it used to be an arcade?!??”
The house is being sold by Andrew Pearce and is within walking distance of both Eastcote and Pinner stations.
A representative for the estate agents said there is sadly no satisfying backstory to accompany the hundreds of sockets.
They claim the owner simply asked for that many outlets when the house was refurbished – and the contractors didn’t object.
There was also no clarification on whether the amount of electricity to power this many outlets would trip the fuse.
On their website, Andrew Pearce lists the house as a ‘family haven’, situated in a ‘family-friendly location’.
It is described as being ‘bright and spacious’ with a ‘natural flow of light’. in addition to the many spotlights along the walls.
As well as five bedrooms across 3,000 square feet, the house also boasts three bathrooms, a garage, conservatory and a reception room with a fire place.
