    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

    ....just looked it up. Seller is a lingerie mogul (someone called Michelle Mone who I've never heard of). It's beginning to remind me of an episode of Father Ted!

    Baroness Mone. I'm sure buying property on the Isle of Man had everything to do with the view and nothing to do with any lack of capital gains or inheritance tax.

    Yeah, the property includes separate staff accommodation. No surprise as you must need a team of full time staff and it's located in the middle of nowhere.

    Maybe it could be run as a spa type retreat.

    Some business deals, you fly people in in your helicopter. You put them up lavishly. You entertain them royally. It oils the wheels of the deal. Hotel is not far off the mark.
    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?

    What a house! Has it got an indoor hang-gliding arena in the basement?

    The pictures were from a photographer trying to hard, okay I could skim over that but the floor plan? the upstairs link baffled me more than the downstairs link, what's with the black sharpie scribbles over the bath?

Probably cost the seller a few quid but leave potential buyers completely confused because the EA couldn't be bothered to fix the transparency of the background layer and fill in the gaps of storage areas etc.
