    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 have just noticed that despite the lack of space, the man still has enough room in the flat for the mandatory set of twigs in in a vase!

    Have a look at where he keeps his manky trainers - right below his cutlery and crockery and opposite his food in a closed cupboard - mmmmm, can 't you just smell the ripe odour of sweaty feet and dog !!!!...

    that's made me smile, and I'm having trouble doing that at the moment, so thank you!

    Hard to believe that PP was given to that - it's just so out of keeping with next door: even the roof line doesn't match!

    Glad to help!

    What I don't understand is the price - presumably they thought they could play the market and make a killing but when you bear in mind that for around the same or less you can get these:

    There's an estate agents round our way, lots of properties up, seem to be very thorough with their advertising, lots of photos, usually a floorplane too etc, but what i love about them is they feel the need to have witty captions on the pictures...

    Unless the guitar is an integral part of the house and comes with the sale seems like a complete waste of time.

    The caption "want to see more!", surely should be a question mark, that's an odd rhetorical question!
