    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

    Or is that just a random portrait from a charity shop?

    If the bathroom's men-only, where do the women do their ablutions?

    There is a lesson in there for all of us. If you are colour blind get someone who isn't to choose the colours to decorate your house or you will finish up with something that looks like this.

Iíll never forget the particularly vile sludge jumper that he was convinced was a fetching shade of green.

    Dare say a typically-furnished English semi might just look and feel a tad weird in Tripoli too. Heavy Wilton carpets might not feel so comfy there!
    Opportunities may be missed, especially when they arrive disguised as hard work.

    Spot the potty.

    Someone who lives in a house like that is actually responsible for food hygiene?

    For just £20k more, a 7 bedroom student let that looks a lot cleaner!

    Oh my, what's under the bed cover?
    What's the thing on the floor in the corner next to the washing machine?
    Theres baked beans on the plate beside the microwave.
    Why hasn't the rubbish been taken out?

    Looking at that house, I dont think I would be buying an Icecream or a snack from that van

    Three points on this one...


    1. I'd be worried I'd fall off the cliff, coming home !!!!ed
    2, How do you tell if the cliff is safe and the house won't fall down there due to erosion
    3, How the hell do you cook with they cooker where it is and what looks like a smoke alarm about the cooker
