    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

    Isn't it the building bottom left of photo, with overgrown roof, red door & windows and a chimney?

    It's on Street View:

    It is genuinely puzzling, though. How on earth can that have an upstairs?

    The rear is north facing. Bet it's damp and gloomy down there.

    I've taken the link out as it's making the thread look really wide!

    Oh ok, I've worked it out. Link
