I'm now starting to think my three-bedroom detached house I owned in Bolton in 1999 was rather "posh". It had an integrated garage, a double driveway (it actually fit three cars), a dedicated utility room with a sink and a washer and separate dryer and a tall fridge and freezer and dishwasher in the kitchen. Those two had doors that hid them. My husband chose the house for me (I still lived in Wokingham at the time) because the builder said it was "American-styled". I guess it was, now that I think about it. I guess things weren't all "grim up north" after all.

That is posh! Ooo!   ;)
These days any new build is quite tiny, squash as many as they can.  They all need to have downstairs loos here in Scotland and you see they now make combined utility/toilet rooms to pretend you're getting something special with a utility room. Same sink for handwashing and everything else a utility room sink is used for.

This is something I've seen a lot in floorplans here (Kent, not Scotland).  In a lot of houses the only loo is downstairs but the bedrooms are upstairs, and you'd have to walk through like 4 rooms to get from the bedroom to the bathroom in the middle of the night.  Not a fan at all.

Yeah, our bathroom is at the very back of the house, it's an add on since it was built in 1885. You can see where the old outhouses were in the back gardens. They've added a macerator toilet upstairs which is nice.

Might be 1895. I don't feel like walking out front to check though.
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.
