    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

    I don't know what they were cooking on the lounge fire but I suspect it wasn't marshmallows.

    Spot the photographer too. Though given the number of mirrors he hasn't done too badly.

    Might have been better to have spent money on bathroom and kitchen (no photos, but apparently need refurbishment) than on all that rubbish in the house!

    You've been warned. As no bedroom photos, what on earth is lurking upstairs???

    There is a kitchen pic (photo 2) but it’s easy to miss because it’s lost among the chandeliers and ornaments! It’s not a close up though so I am also wondering how much work it needs. Lack of bathroom pic suggests it might either be terrible, or so crowded with embroidered towels, decorative soaps, knitted loo roll covers, knickknacks and tchotchkes that they couldn’t open the door....

    Wouldn't you have loved to be a fly on the wall when the EA photographer came out to take the pics? One of the moments when you're desperately trying to find a tactful way of suggesting a few 'tweaks' to more successfully show the house to best advantage (whilst realising you're doomed...)

    Is that a loo or a bidet in the bathroom? Also, “balcony” is a bit optimistic
