    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

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

    For contrast, this is very near where my mother used to live. They look nice from the outside, but personally I'm not keen on the interior exposed beams look of these types of cottages and being Grade 2 listed there will be costs for maintenance - even if it does date partly from 1650.

    Would it be worth taking a builder round the property with you?

    1) Yes, I do fancy my builder.
    2) Does the property have a decent mattress?
    3) Can the EA be persuaded to disappear?
    4) Is it sole agency?!
    5) Have I misconstrued ?

    Admittedly I have very limited experience, but possibly.


    We only went to that area once and we ended-up with a child and quite a large car repair bill, though not in that order.


    Very pretty though, and on the positive side, we somehow dodged the midges.

    Not Gonks. There are many soft toys that purport to be Gonks, but the originals look like this:


    On my screen they're definitely devils.

    Not noisy at all. There was only a small period of about a few minutes at night occasionally when I assume a certain plane is circling , waiting for permission to land when there is an eerie sort of sound . Otherwise I hear more plane noise in London. You would never really know there was an airport apart from the road signs.

    Spot the cat(s)!





    Both pics from the same property no longer on the market, sold in 2017, but any urls I try to post to it don't work.

    Looks quite cosy actually, at least for the summer months!

    Moorings up that way cost a small fortune per year. With a bit of tidying up and maintenance there could be moorings for a fair few boats there.

    Could make a nice little business for someone.
