    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

    I quite like it.

    The style of it just has to be either Brighton or Totnes. No Buddhist prayer flags = Brighton then.

    I dont see the point of the rooftops photo at the end though...

    The point of the photo at the end is to show that it has a 'sea view'. Technically, I have one of those too, it's that blue triangle between the rooftops which is slightly darker than the sky...

    The first photo was clear enough that I could spot my personal "Here be bodgers" sign (ie visible piping going up the wall) and turned me off straight away.

    Guess I didnt phrase that too well - ie most people take it for granted that the neighbours wont disrupt a decent nights sleep.

    I was making the point that most of us take it for granted that we get the "peace and quiet" we need (are absolutely entitled to have) at night in our bedrooms

    But I do know/have experienced personally the frustration/anger of those times when a neighbour (or nearby traffic) does disrupt that "peace and quiet"....

    Fingers crossed for you that this will resolve soon.

    Thanks, I am having some work done at the end of June which should hopefully knock out some of the downstairs. Upstairs and next door I think I am just going to have to live with for a few years until I stop needing to commute and can get myself a little semi-detached cottage in a quiet area. /dreamy sigh

    Well, you would think by now someone would have noticed that all of the photos are upside down - the property was listed a month ago. It's making me feel a bit sick.
