    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

    Ok, the estate agent will be here today to take pictures, so make sure the purple throws are on the sofas and the bed is almost made and don't worry about the green mould on the front wall, photoshop will take care of that, plus I'm sure the kitchen could be made to look a bit lonnnnnger, in the pictures

    Always a good idea to ensure the bedroom ceiling is well supported and illuminated

    Besides, The Skegness Reconstituted Marble Back Panel' doesn't really have the same ring to it as The Turin Shroud.

    Slightly lacking in facilities is this

    Studio flat for sale
    Denbigh House, Hans Place, Knightsbridge
    140,000


    It looks nice on Streetview



    but less nice in the actual accommodation provided.

    The bubble has well and truly burst. When I was looking to buy in 2014 there was a similar property, a bit closer to the park, up at 240,000.

    Slight touch of subsidence in the kitchen floor, and the security roller shutters, metal fencing and CCTV puts me off.
