    The "have a look at this!" thread II 5th Aug 11 at 11:16 AM
    Official MSE Insert:

    Thanks to Grimbal for starting this thread, where compulsive Rightmove browsers share their funniest finds. Scroll down for Playboy mansions, unusual extensions, toilets in wardrobes and mysterious presences under bedcovers.

    Back to the original post...

    Thought I'd start off a new thread as the other one was getting to be pretty long. The old thread can be found here.

    How about starting up a thread dedicated to the interesting properties that we come across in our searches ?

    I'm guessing these guys don't invite their granny over to watch TV

    I always try to look beyond the clutter when looking at a house - but even I can't see beyond the mess of this house and I find all that stuff in the bathroom being on display when you're trying to sell your house kinda off putting.

    Surely there must be at least 15 different people living there for that many bottles to be in use at the same time! Odd, the house doesn't really look big enough for that ...

    The house must belong to a rock and roll granny, look at the music room, or perhaps she plays the church organ? And how on earth did laura spot the vintage baby powder among all that dross??? I have now added to my pet hates (along with the twigs) stuffed toys in an adults bedroom.

    strange all the stuff is around the bath, not on the cistern or window sill as well.

    I somehow didn't notice that

    I thought Sensible_Jess was referring to the thing that's just to the other side of the fire in front of the bricks - it looks a bit like a great big stuffed toad standing on its hind legs...

    Anyone with better eyesight than me got any idea what that is?

    Didn't notice the toad / frog on the other side - well spotted
