    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

    Church conversion resulting in a rather odd layout. And it has about *the* dullest furnishing I have ever seen - they've actually managed to make it totally characterless despite the otherwise atmospheric surroundings.

    Come on people, it's not difficult: lose means to be unable to find, loose means not being fixed in place. So if you have a hole in your pocket you might lose your loose change.

    It does have 5 toilets though, three of which are off living rooms, two off the same living room.

    11 of us stayed in the house last year. It's a great holiday home. Not so sure about its b&b potential due to the layout. Plenty of toilets and 3 bathrooms. The views are incredible and the main road below isn't that noisy. Beach 5 mins walk. What's not to like? Wish I could afford to buy it!

    Oh and its the perfect house for a brilliant game of hide & seek with the kids!

    Now here's one for all you fitness fanatics. Just fetching the shopping from the car should keep one's circulation in good working order!

    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-61978460.html


    I note that: "Our vendor is actively looking for another property." which might explain the telescope, though not why it's currently trained on Ms Hughes-Jones' place across the green......
