    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

    The EA seems to think the bathroom is a selling point given how many pics there are of it.

    It's hideous.

    But who knows? Maybe the "Welcome" sign is there for the benefit of great crested newts......

    And what is wrong with that? I like it.

    Strip out the sellers clutter and personal belongings, and perhaps re decorate and that's a great house in a great location. The trouble with so many buyers is they just can't see beyond personal belongings that are not to their taste.

    Bedroom One 12' x 9'9 (3.66m x 2.97m)
    Bedroom Two 13' x 8'5 (3.96m x 2.57m)
    Bedroom Three 10'1 x 7'7 (3.07m x 2.31m)
    Bedroom Four 8'7 x 6'6 (2.62m x 1.98m)

    And it's not in any flood risk area according to any environment agency maps (very near one, yes, but not even in the 0.1% zone). I suspect that, like my own house, it's a matter of local geography. The left bank of the local river is 3ft higher than the right - and you have to go a very long way from the river on that right hand side to get three foot above it, so that's the direction the flooding goes.

    To be honest, the only real problem with this house is that it is in Thetford ...
