    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

    What's the deal with the garage? If it's owned by 1 household, why is there a half wall? If it's owned by 2 separate households, why is there a half wall?

    I think one would decide

    This property has 'an amazing setting facing onto the River Liffey with superb views of salmon stands, wildlife & the weir.' So let's show a photo of it looking like an industrial shed by a main road and not actually any photos of the view.

    It looks a lovely house, and the following news article from 2008 says a lot (given the guide price now is E675000).

    TOP GEAR meets Wind in the Willows is the only way to describe two remarkable houses on the River Liffey at Islandbridge, Dublin 8. Hip young urbanites in search of spacious city homes will be interested in Swan Lake - two large riverside homes priced from €1.8 million to €2 million for sale through agent Owen Reilly.

    Oh, and this from 2017, in case anyone is convinced from HUTH that property development is easy and free of risk:

    A fund is seeking judgment for €2.6 million against the developer of two luxury Liffeyside homes in Dublin. The properties at 1A and 1B “Swan Lake”, Chapelizod Road, Islandbridge, were developed by David Wright, whose address is 1B.

    They have been valued by a receiver at between €1.65 million and €2.4 million. It is claimed Anglo Irish Bank, before it was nationalised as Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (IBRC), loaned Mr Wright €2.25 million in 2008 to renew existing facilities to acquire the land and build the two homes.
    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?

    This worked for me on my iPad but once pasted into MSE throws up the same error as the other post, so I give up.

    How does a house get to that state?

    The suggested uses for this house seem rather specific. And what’s happened in pic 13? https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-84022217.html

    Select Residential.

    It's about number 6 in the list.

    Spot the agent.

    Though she looks like she's wearing a fluffy pink dressing gown, so maybe it's the owner taking the photos?
