    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

    Not that I'm excusing any of it, but surely they maybe got the old cabinet doors from somewhere, and they are already hinged and have handles or something, so they couldn't change where the handles were? They really shouldn't have stopped and got new doors in that case.

    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.

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

    ... and did they really wallpaper the bath?

    Checked out the old number plate, which belonged to a 1985 TVR. The MoT expired in May 2013. Quite a car, if one can still get down that far.....

    The house is number 94. Click on the link and you'll get the pictures/details from the previous listing.

    Hope that makes sense

    Someone was on the sauce when they wrote this description, which I quote in case they change it later:

    "This property is situated in Henllan a village in Derbighshire approximately 2.25 miles northwest of Denbigh. This refurbished character cottage has a reasonable sized southe facing garden enjoying spectacular views over the countryside of Denbighsire and is in a close proximity of two primary schools of Refach-Velindre and Newcastle Emlyn."

    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-52241739.html?utm_content=v2-ealertspropertyimage&utm_medium=email&utm_source=e mailupdates&utm_campaign=emailupdates1day&utm_term =buying&sc_id=10316786&onetime_FromEmail=true

    There's no such county as Derbighshire.

    Denbigh
    the townis about 110 miles from this cottage.

    "Refach Velindre" is just a mis-spelling of Drefach Velindre.

    The cottage is actually in Aber Banc, not Henllan, but don't let any of the above put you off!

    And yes, the agent's address is a shed, but quite a nice one. If I were the vendor, I'd rather not help them pay the rent through producing this sort of tosh.....
