    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

    Have you looked at the room measurements? It has 4 beds squashed into the size of the average 3 bed semi. No kerb appeal at all and it needs stripping out inside and it is next to a bog so a flood risk. Nothing going for it at all.

    Bedroom One 12' x 9'9 (3.66m x 2.97m)
    Bedroom Two 13' x 8'5 (3.96m x 2.57m)
    Bedroom Three 10'1 x 7'7 (3.07m x 2.31m)
    Bedroom Four 8'7 x 6'6 (2.62m x 1.98m)

    And it's not in any flood risk area according to any environment agency maps (very near one, yes, but not even in the 0.1% zone). I suspect that, like my own house, it's a matter of local geography. The left bank of the local river is 3ft higher than the right - and you have to go a very long way from the river on that right hand side to get three foot above it, so that's the direction the flooding goes.

    To be honest, the only real problem with this house is that it is in Thetford ...

    I guess it might actually be a small card table undercover as a chair, in the hope of catching the sitting tenant.

    They can then question them as to who erected these garages in a place with no tarmacked vehicular access, although there is a sort of dropped kerb and a track, of sorts. It's all a bit odd.

    another odd configuration. a sitting room and bedroom served off a utility room. and the fridge in the sitting room is interesting as is the wall paper in pic 11.
