    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

    Well, here's a brave developer, gambling on someone coming along to spend £650,000 of their money on this rather smart house and not noticing what has happened to coast road a little further to the East.

    The situation wouldn't put me off, but I'm afraid the house would!

    Do people think this is a good idea and more importantly, why do EA's let them do this? Its just odd.

    But yes....I look nervously at nearby cliffs of the red in colour variety.... and I'd be hazarding a guess that the house location per se might remain okay - but wondering whether the road to access it would be.....

    It is, but considering the location (x3) is as important as measuring the tonnes of bricks & mortar to maintain and the space to heat in winter. But regarless of all that, could you see yourself living in it? I couldn't.

    Bearing in mind it's sales history, other people haven't exactly fallen over each other in the scramble to buy either!

    I suppose it's mainly the flat roof. Inside isn't awful, but there are signs of corner-cutting and I hate ripping-out perfectly good materials. I'd like the amount of light and the balconies.

    I live in a property not far removed in time from that one, but if I had £650k there are houses I'd rather have from an earlier era. In other words, I bought middle C20th 'cos it was cheap!
