    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

    Garden parties could prove tricky here with the only access being through the bathroom!

    I really like it. You might need to zoom in a bit to see the textures on the stone.

    Wow, and he seems surprisingly sane considering he's been doing that for 5 years. I'd have lost the plot after about a month I think.

    It's the bit where he says he works from home that gets me, I work from home. My office is bigger than his entire home. I'd go nuts living and working in that amount of space.

    I also can't decide whether I hate that kitchen or love it... It's nice and big, but most of that space is in the eaves.


    Easy access to the mainline station indeed - just reach out the window with the hook of your umbrella, and the train will take you there!

    With that attention to detail, which many white non-Muslims omit, I doubt if they'd fit a system with uncontrolled pressure that left their bathroom floor sailing in water!
