    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

    You mean the vendor finding a way to tell you "Look you can (just about) see I'm slim = middle class. So you will be too if you buy my house...."

    I agree with Clutterfree, the staging is totally OTT, so I find it pretentious, but if it hits home with the target market then it's done its job.

    I may be wrong, but I think that's the back garden. Streetview shows one side of the house having a door from the 'lounge' opening directly onto the street. I'd take thsat as the front, especially with all the service pipes on t'other side.

    The photographer certainly is in love with that moka pot. It has pride of place in three photos. Maybe he was suffering from caffeine withdrawal!

    I was going to go with 'spot the coffee pot' until I got further through the photos - it actually appears in 7 photos.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's not one of the staging items Mr and Mrs Clarke bring with them - Mrs Clarke says, 'Have you put the box of props into the boot?', Mr Clarke say, 'Oh no, don't know what I'd do without you, darling'. Mrs Clarke says, 'For fu....

    Which brings up wondering just what the EA gets renamed to if Mr and Mrs Clarke should ever go their separate ways....

    and my mind boggling as to just why "Mrs" let the agency get called that in the first place - it coulda been "The Clarkes" for instance.

    Photographer is pretty good though, I love the little staged action figure in one of the photos would love to see the non styled version of the house

    I can't decide if that's a mirror or a picture!

    I know EAs like a bit of 'puff' with their wording, but is this really 'A stunning 1930's detached house'

    Easily stunned I think!
