    The "have a look at this!" thread II 5th Aug 11 at 10:16 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

    Now wonders if the neighbours are incredibly nosy (in which case I'd have put blinds up along all those conservatory windows to block that) - not a blimmin' great fence...

    OR they were determined to get literally every single last inch of space for that conservatory - but forgot about how they would get to maintain one of those conservatory "walls".

    I can't see anything wrong with this house, but the price history on Property Bee is interesting:

    27th April: listed at 400,000
    3rd May: reduced to 380,000
    5th May: reduced to 375,000
    12th May: reduced to 365,000

    400,000 was optimistic, but they've dropped the price incredibly fast.
