    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

    Looks like there might be free folding chair and a hose reel if you're quick!

    I guess it might actually be a small card table undercover as a chair, in the hope of catching the sitting tenant.

    They can then question them as to who erected these garages in a place with no tarmacked vehicular access, although there is a sort of dropped kerb and a track, of sorts. It's all a bit odd.

    another odd configuration. a sitting room and bedroom served off a utility room. and the fridge in the sitting room is interesting as is the wall paper in pic 11.

    There's a street near where I work where there's some great looking houses facing some rubbish looking ones, so the rubbish ones had a great view but the nice-looking ones had a horrible one. If they were similar on the inside, we wondered whether it was better to be in the ones that looked good or overlooked the good ones.

    Apart from the double glazing and microwave, this house could have been used as a film set for Prime Suspect 1973

    What I really like (not) is the carpet on the side of the bath. How do you hoover that?
