    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

    I would hope they'd give more details soon, as it's only been on since yesterday. If they don't I wouldn't be too happy if I was the vendor.

    Pig's ear is about right though.

    I can't believe someone has put the gas boiler in a bedroom! - but as the kitchen and bathroom need gutting I suppose that it could be moved to a more appropriate place then.

    Not sure if I had the bedroom in picture 6 that I would want anyone else in the house having guests coming round after 9 at night.

    and wondering if it would be normal at that point for my way of living and can't quite picture it

    ....and then I saw I would be stocking up on earplugs...

    and it became a "No then"....

    Might do for a very different way of living to mine - but for me it went into "Not as a gift".

    Regardless of the design, facing north esast on a steep slope in the same direction is a no-no. The photos just highlight the problem.

This one is lesser of two evils of the two of them - one could feel "at home" (well - inside the place anyway) and good views/not too much noise pollution (the A680 nearby and people might use the road as a cut-through but, hopefully, shouldnt be too bad) and no having to "knock the place around" to fit...I thought my (still currently "concrete garden" would cost a lot to normalise). That garden would cost a heck of a lot - rip up all flooring/paint and hide concrete walls/put up tall fast-growing trees all round the edge (errrmm...not leylandii - but hundreds each for pretty full-grown trees to go around the borders).

    Are some of the pictures in black and white?

    What's that in picture 14?

    I think the shirts in 19 might be staged.
