    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 church was converted by a builder and has been on the market a couple of years. The flue looks like an extra terrestrial beacon to me! And the village is a bit of a dump in the middle of nowhere

    It's amazing. I love the commandment to relax in that bath affair in the conservatory whilst in full view of the neighbours.

    I wonder what the people are like?

    Distinctly wierd arrangement though and all I'd keep from it would be the pebbles - as they could usefully go out in the garden.

    There is an alien hiding behind the shower curtain on the corner of the bath in that house.

    The cushions in the living room cracked me up. Because there's three of them, it makes it look like they're repeating it over and over like a mantra.

    I love following this thread, read it almost daily, and post once in a blue moon when I come across a truly hideous house. It worries me at the moment though as I keep expecting to click on a link on here and find my house staring back at me! (my house is currently up for sale)

    I actually did the Right Move version of a double-take. Clicked past it, paused, clicked back, .

    The lights in pic 8 are neat!

    Oh, and it's another house that I really like.
    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?

    Generally, they can. A 747 flew over my house 5 minutes ago and I could hear it outdoors. It was at 37000' and decelerating, so not as loud as a jet accelerating/climbing to a similar altitude, and not very intrusive.

    However, I live in a quiet place. If there was a busy road outside, I'd not have noticed that plane, or most of the others. The intrusiveness really depends on the sort of location affected.

Have just had my hearing checked (part of an annual check) and it's "average" I suspect yours must be much better to hear planes that high? A plane at 37000ft if decelerating should be even quieter than one staying at that height since it will be throttling its engines back.
