    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

    .. and the bathroom floor doesnt show any adaptation to allow for what happens to the water run-off from it (no matter how carefully "aimed" there must be some).

    My thought was that, if I left it in place (doubtful.....) I'd use it for foot-washing or footwear-washing. Done over the loo - for the water to go down there.

    But - being somewhere semi-rural now - I've got waterbutts around and use them instead for rinsing off muddy footwear before coming indoors. The waterbutts would do as well for just washing my feet - if I didnt mind it being cold

    Might come in handy for dog-washing too? Though, personally, if I had a dirty dog on my hands - I'd just put them in my walk-in shower and turn it on.

    The house is OK, barring the fireplace & chimney breast, which I'd have to sort out, but the garden's small for the type of property, so not a goer for me. I'd end up like one of those sad polar bears at the zoo, walking round in circles, swaying and shouting at passers-by.
    (OK I know the bears don't shout, but they would if they could!)

    Mind you - 2 bathrooms doesnt seem much for a 7 bedroom house too (even if one has facilities to clean teeth or wash hands in most of those bedrooms - until you rip the washbasins out for being old-fashioned that is).
