    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

    Obviously built after window tax was abolished (nice house though!)

    Unless it's a lovely view from the property I am always slightly wary when the EA posts filler pics of the often not that local facilities. As if the property itself is missing something but hey...there a library nearby! Or a field somewhere.

    Plus the weasel words that imply "some work" may be needed.

    This property would be perfectly suited for a buyer who is looking for a project.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    I think I would be a little scared to tell these people I didn't like their house

    It won't be a problem, they are either decommissioned or mock-ups because although I don't recognise the one on the right, the one on the left looks like a "Tommy gun" officially called a Thompson Submachine Gun (though it has the stick rather than the drum magazine favoured by the prohibition gangster movies) and even Dillinger wouldn't let an estate agent photograph a highly illegal working gun in their house

    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.

    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.

    Ever fancied lounging around in bed with your other half sat on the toilet next to you then this one is for you.

    Very odd little house with a bathroom in the bedroom (No separation aside of a waist height wall behind the wc)

    You'd think a few baths in here would pose a significant condensation issue too

    Shame really.
    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?

    Radiator leak unnoticed under the carpet, and condensation on the coldest external walls; perhaps the occupant was in/out of hospital and didn't notice. The kitchen looks quite clean and that's usually the worst if a property is neglected.

    Astonishment is perhaps the word?

    I'd insist that the garden be included in a structural survey.
