    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

    Flipping Heck! What a price!! It's very pretty but it looks like it could do with a bit of TLC (leaving aside the fact that it only has one bedroom).

    Just unbelievable!!!!

    Looking at street view all the other properties look well kept and tidy. I bet they all hate this house!

    Floor plan says the kitchen is 0.93m wide. Assuming standard units & oven, you could just about open the door, but not to get anything out safely.

    I know there are recommended ergonomic minimum clearances for access to sinks, baths, toilets, cupboards etc but I wonder if they are legally enforceable?

    They are considered for Planning in new builds, but AFAIK not in Building Regs for refurbishment of existing (much of which wouldn't be subject to full building regs anyway).

    The floor plan makes me wonder if the front small room of large flat on the landing has been borrowed to make a third smaller flat.

    Originally the back bedroom of that flat would have been a kitchen, with a small scullery off, and the hall cupboard may have been a box bed off the kitchen.

    I'd actually buy this, scrub off the years of nicotine, and refurb it but keep the Parkray solid fuel central heating as I do miss mine in a way.

    A 'one bedroom detached house' which is actually a studio. A studio with a 'mezzanine' directly above the kitchen area, which is maybe big enough to fit a single mattress, accessed via a steep ladder and without enough headroom to sit up in:

    The place has been completely renovated so i was curious to see what it looked like before. Sold for 85k August last year:
