    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

    They've fitted all those fancy LED lights but they still have cables trailing up to the tvs - photos 10 and highlighted again in photo 25.

    Photo 11 - looks like the Estate Agent couldn't stand the room so set the camera on remote control.

    Photo 14 - is the vacuum cleaner part of an art installation like Tracy Emin's unmade bed? Or perhaps an indication of lack of storage. I wonder where they've hidden the ironing board.

    I can't get my head round having multiple living areas for each person. Why?

    Oh and picture 5 doesn't bode well storage wise in this.

    Ab fab - Edinas house and Saffy's bedroom at the top...

    What a bl**dy mess! Ruined a perfectly nice period house. How on earth is anyone supposed to redecorate that - where would you even start!

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

    I thought it was good value till I looked at the plan.

    Friends had a better-shaped pad a few doors up from there. Good view of Sydney Gardens, but they hardly saw the sun. That one at least looks the right way.

    second bedroom
    Well, in the description the second bedroom is the cupboard between the ensuite and the kitchen, at 4ft 9inches I suppose you might get a cot in there.

Never occurred to me to use it as a bedroom; it was just a store with access to the roof......which was far more interesting, especially in weather like we're having now. There was a beautiful, un-overlooked space up there, just right for growing tomatoes!
