Spare a thought for the homebuyers searching for their dream property... only to stumble upon these nightmare houses.

The snaps, collated in a gallery by Bored Panda, were shared on the Facebook group You Should Have Hired An Architect which has more than 31,000 members.

The group is dedicated to examples of why it is a bad idea to take on a build job without an architect.

One unusual home included a bath-tub in the kitchen, while others featured bizarre roof-top features including turrets.
