    The "have a look at this!" thread II 5th Aug 11 at 10:16 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

    At any rate I agree with you about the aspect of it!

    Thought this place seemed cheap for a 2 bedroom until I looked at the floorplan...

    Looking though the window at the apartments opposite - do they have some sort of external shutter system for the large windows?
    Look like ex-commercial units conversion.

    You can picture the scene. You're out on the town, all preened and primped and crimped and suited and booted, and you're looking for love. You get lucky; they're gorgeous and funny and clever and they really, really, like you. The evening is an unqualified success. Why yes, they would like to come back to yours for coffee. The taxi drops you off on the main road, and you walk towards the gates. You become aware that they're backing away.

    No, come back! you cry. Despite appearances, I'm not going to chop you up and put you in bin bags!

    It's too late. They've gone.

    I kind of love that there's a house in York with a palm tree in the garden. That's an awful lot of foliage at the front, though. I wonder if the house is shy?

    Ps: I know you mean the one in the back. Frost got ours, it's grim up north.

    Mind you, I'm a couple of hours north of York and we currently have a palm tree positioned by the river. Looking a little the worse for wear though, and I think it was only intended to be there for the summer - is in a container.

    EDIT: damn ninjas editing while I type.
