A former Edwardian public toilet in south London, measuring just four meters square, is to be converted into a two-story “duplex apartment” and will be worth 135,000 pounds ($200,000), say estate agents Acorns in Lewisham.

“I don’t think the fact that it was a loo will put people off,” said an Acorns spokesman of the convenience, at 17 Devonshire Road, on the busy South Circular road.
