    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

    Gosh, are they selling those second-hand already?

    The way they've decorated just emphasises the pokiness of the place.

    There's much better on offer in Deb'n for around the £200k mark.

    That sort of thing works to an extent when it's Villeroy and Boch, but not when it's Taylor Wimpey and bodge!

    There is no chain so I assume it may be a probate sale which makes me feel a bit mean but it's quite a spectacle. Check it out.

    Not sure about the main bedroom, or bathroom, but generally a nice house, spoiled by the mess the neighbors have made to theirs, spoiling a row of Victorian terraces.

    First thought "What's that building to the right?". Further thoughts "That building to the right has concrete block walls", "The roof is overhanging into our garden", "Hang on a little minute - I think its wall has even been built a bit into our garden".

    We had the same in our road of 30s semis, which were somewhat over-windowed to start with. About half the owners converted to picture-style, which not only looked like shop windows, but made one feel like a fish in a bowl indoors.

    May as well have hung signs on their gates: "Persons with no appreciation of art & design live here."

    How do you pick the worst room when they've all got their own charm...

    ... and did they really wallpaper the bath?

    From the wallpaper pattern, it looks like the wall to the right of the window has the wallpaper hung in vertical strips. The bath and the wall below the window have horizontal strips of wallpaper, running in opposite directions.

    That interior is utterly awful Why combine so many (hideous) patterns/wall coverings? Did whoever decorated - and I use the term loosely - actually think those combinations looked good together?

    As for the kitchen - apart from the fact I'm not a fan of bathroom-style tiles being used in a kitchen setting (see wall of large tiles to left side) - what in god's name possessed them to put the cabinet doors on like that? Not only are the top handles out of reach to anyone under 7'* or not wearing stilts, but the base cabinet handles are at rodent-level, lol......handy if the local mice want to help themselves to a few scooby snacks
