    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

    It may be a stable arrangement, but the 'horse house' is only available 'for licence,' which seems to be a pretentious way of saying it's just rented.

    Doesn't the interior predate the exterior? Might they have build the house around it?!

I'd guess from the architecture this house was built in the early 70s so definitely possible this style of kitchen was still available new at that time.

    DCFC79 Yes. The price is about right but I wouldn't live there. Don't like the area. This part of West Midlands is one of the cheapest.
    I did wider search today and that one came up and I found the pics a bit odd.

    The listing was first on Rightmove in September 2017 with the below description. Since featuring in this thread 3 long hours ago, it has been changed. "By the Power of MSE, I have the power!"

    DESCRIPTION

This extensively refurbished home offers a fantastic and versatile living space abundant with original exposed beams and brickwork adding to the property's internal beauty.

RARE and Outstanding opportunity for family or retired.

    Come on people, it's not difficult: lose means to be unable to find, loose means not being fixed in place. So if you have a hole in your pocket you might lose your loose change.

    A huge patio, but the elevation of it makes me wonder what lies beneath! Nice length of garden, almost cancels out the stick-a-bricks on the front....

    Not a road where many people move on, judging by the dearth of sold properties; a good sign.

    Well...splutter.....I just don't know what to say, apart from that this house should be preserved as a museum.
    How on earth could anyone actually live in it? Id be fascinated to see it in person.

    Always a good idea to 'stage' the property when the pictures are taken, gives a lived in feel, as well as makes it look at its best.
