    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

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

    Section off back of new garage to create utility room
    Knock down existing right hand kitchen wall and hallway, so large squarish kitchen
    Knock down right hand lounge wall to open up into new dining area. Change right hand lounge window for sliding doors (possibly extending to right).
    Not sure what to do with back kitchen wall - keep I think and ditch the window. Not sure I really like totally open plan in a large house.
    Then extend upstairs as well...........

    Ignore my ramblings .

    All very nice inside, but the phrase "polishing a turd" springs to mind http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-47374860.html

    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?

    I remember the time though when many (including me) thought it looked really nice... - and the coloured bathroom suites...
