    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

    To be fair there's a fair bit of work been done, and you don't have to use that sleeping space for sleeping. It would be useful storage.
    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?

    That's true, i agree. I quite like it apart from that sleeping area.

    Another 1 bedroom house but what constitutes an "Entrance Hall" is pushing the definition to its limits.

    I'm all for a bit of idiosyncrasy but there are limits. It reminds me of the time we viewed a house where just about everything was painted black or red. It was like walking into an S&M dungeon.

    Well at least no giant "EAT", "LOVE" or "SLEEP" lettering on the walls or shelves.

    Even just looking at the photos has left me feeling really miserable and down. Then suddenly we entered the garden, lifted my spirit!

    I reckon anyone who lived in that house would be requiring antidepressants within a couple of months. Drab, grey and lifeless.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.
