    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

    Today in 'how many kids can you fit in a two bedroom house?'
    Also that living room colour is definitely something.

    That is hideous.

    For some reason they seem to have left the room in pic 11 untouched. The rest of the house is truly dreadful.

    I thought "Looks like a lot of water has been leaking into some of those rooms". But, actually, one could always live in the smaller house and think that that price was an okay one to pay for just smaller house and all that land.

    The property below is the closest comparable one I can see in that area and is listed for 1.1 million but it has only a fraction of the amount of land and is IMO a less attractive building.

    I'm sure quite a few horror movies started off with families arriving at properties like this, saying things like "It's a bit isolated" "What a charming old place" plus "And it's surprisingly affordable".

    Only jesting. It looks brilliant.

    13,000sq ft (1181 sqm) at about £1k per sq m for a decent historic renovation of the main house, you're looking over a million for the renovation, Its not a bad price, buts a money pit.

    True. Maybe it was the scene of a mass murder or devil worship, subject to local legend. Wouldn't put me off though, although the renovation costs might!

    Not quite as big, but here's another one:

    OK so a TV in a bedroom is nothing special these days, but can anyone work out how you are supposed to watch it?
