An ambitious home improvement project has led to a spectacular Thomas Crapper bathroom being installed in the unlikely location of a treehouse.
Whilst more commonly found in royal palaces and luxury houses, the latest setting for a Thomas Crapper bathroom is decidedly more rustic.
Nestled in a private garden in Bournemouth is a £100,000 luxury treehouse; the perfect hideaway, evoking thoughts of magic and fairy tales. Tucked away in one of the three-roomed wooden structure’s turrets is an exquisite Thomas Crapper bathroom. Complete with solid brass cistern and fittings, solid oak ‘Throne’ WC seat, Harwood basin and original cistern pull and chain, the bathroom is fit for a princess.
Paul Dwyer, managing director of Thomas Crapper, explains: “Thomas Crapper bathrooms can be found in some unique locations around the world, but I think this may be the first time one’s been fitted in a treehouse!
“The customer was determined to use the best quality fittings and furnishings for every element of his remarkable treehouse so we were naturally thrilled that Thomas Crapper was his choice for the bathroom. Our commitment to attention to detail, top quality materials and outstanding craftsmanship makes Thomas Crapper the choice for the most discerning customers, and this was no exception.
“The combination of natural wood, luxurious polished brass and beautiful white chinaware has created something truly special, and the project perfectly showcases how a Thomas Crapper bathroom can work in any setting.”
Items in the bathroom include the Harwood Cloakroom Basin (£399), the High Level Polished Brass Cistern (£2359), the Venerable W.C. Pan (£495), the Throne W.C. seat (£745) and the Cistern Pull (£145).
The treehouse, which took 18 months to complete, was built by High Life Treehouses in North London and Hanbury Home Improvements in Poole.
