The homeowner of this four-room HDB flat in Sengkang is an assistant Chinese art gallery manager.

His abode, especially his bathrooms, instantly transports one into "ye olde English country" with its quaint embellishments.

The set, which comprises a white ceramic washbasin, cistern and bidet adorned with blue floral patterns, had been in the showroom since 1996, waiting for the right buyer. This homeowner snapped it up for about $17,000, spending additional $3,000 on accessories such as Samuel Heath bottle rack and a Gainsborough Argyle beaded robe hook, both from the UK.

He had the handles of his bathrub, along with other colid brass features in the bathroom, plated in 18K gold.

Bath supplies are from Lotus Art Trading; taps from Equip Bathroom; wall tiles from Jireh Technical Services; floor tiles from Soon Bee Huat.
