    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

    Quite sad! the house is pleasant enough...looks like the garden has "run away a little".

    This would be a great garden for the kids....and the horses...and the sheep.

    Interesting place to keep the fridge freezer!

    That wouldn't just be a "rip everything out" job - it would be a "Where's the rest of the kitchen?" job too. Answer - in one of the bedrooms (I've never seen a fridge/freezer in a bedroom before now...).

    EDIT; Just seen last post - glad I'm not the only one that thought that. I think one of the reasons is all that dark furniture - not helped by the poor light the photos were taken in. Though I did think "How on earth can a garden be so bare and barren?"...

    Must be one of those estate agents the "locals" automatically go to - rather than seeking out a decent one (as per DaveNave's recent comment). I looked for the floorplan to see just how one would re-model the house - and it was missing.

    Surely that's a mistype on the price??

    A house near me had the warning that viewings were done at your own risk - surprised this one has got a similar warning

    I actually like that house, great views and love the balcony in the bedroom. If I could get my house sold I'd go view that.

    Is the name not just an ironic name for a new house as it was in 2006?

    ETA. On second view perhaps not. Whoever it is, looks rather odd!
