    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

    It's Grot City and no doubt about it - but the one positive point I noted about it was to think "My mother would be interested to watch the 'activity/bit of a viewpoint' thing currently going on. Take that "plus point to some away" and that flat has got absolutely nothing left from anyone's viewpoint.

    It's an auction and the guide prices are usually exceeded, often by a fair margin. Some people will be put-off by the 'neighbours,' but who knows? It has an air of class about it.

    Go to Street View and rotate the image until you see what's over the road, I imagine that's why this bungalow is for sale!

    Go to the 'proper' Street View, wind the clock back and see what was there in 2008!

    Think I know what I'd prefer!

    EDIT: 2 years owned and the price of No71 has gone up by £162k. I smell an amateur developer......

    To me - I think it needs a decorative fence (with gate in) put right across in line with that concrete on the ground.

    To differentiate which bit of garden is just the owners and - more to the point - to keep out all those bins that obviously look like they belong to people in the main property. I certainly wouldnt want someone else's rubbish bins lined-up all alongside my house. I'd have visions of having to move them away from my property at regular intervals and maybe not even being able to find an alternative location that wasnt bang in my view. Though I guess a new owner could always get some VERY big and VERY heavy plants in pots across where a fence should be and that should deter those bins.

    You wouldn't want to walk it though. Well it would be ok on the way in but it's a hell of a slog coming back.
