    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

    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.

    You will need sunglasses and an open mind to look at this one! It is unbelievable, go have a look, and NEVER judge a book by its cover either!

    There's a street near where I work where there's some great looking houses facing some rubbish looking ones, so the rubbish ones had a great view but the nice-looking ones had a horrible one. If they were similar on the inside, we wondered whether it was better to be in the ones that looked good or overlooked the good ones.

    Apart from the double glazing and microwave, this house could have been used as a film set for Prime Suspect 1973

    What I really like (not) is the carpet on the side of the bath. How do you hoover that?

    I've always thought this about listed houses, for grade 2 listing it's mostly about the exterior. So if you own one you get all the hassle and expense but most of the time you are inside probably frustrated because there are changes you want to make but can't! I'd want the house opposite, so you get a view of a lovely house with none of the hassle!

    On the plus side though - good size plot, bright house and good big rooms. I was trying to work out how to extend it so you had a good kitchen diner but still keep a garage:
    Extend level with front of house
    Wall down garage to create long single garage on right
    Section off back of new garage to create utility room
    Knock down existing right hand kitchen wall and hallway, so large squarish kitchen
    Knock down right hand lounge wall to open up into new dining area. Change right hand lounge window for sliding doors (possibly extending to right).
    Not sure what to do with back kitchen wall - keep I think and ditch the window. Not sure I really like totally open plan in a large house.
    Then extend upstairs as well...........

    Ignore my ramblings .

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