    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

    Wow! some place - would £37K income from the mobile companies mitigate any risks from living with the transmitters? And do the workmen to tend the transmitters come though the house for access?

    Sounds like the transmitters are about ten floors above you, so I'd n ot be panicking. I bet workmen would come as rarely as possible, seeing as how they'd have to climb so many floors.

    God knows and we're not allowed to ask, which only furthers the confusion/resentment that's going around at the mo. It feels like all you have to do is fart in the wrong direction to get a PPR lately.

    Shame. I didn't agree with her very often but a PPR seems harsh.

    I used to think that the reported danger of living near a substation was very unlikely, but in the last year, two men in their thirties, who lived all their lives next door and a few doors from one in our street, have died of brain tumours and another friend, also living near, has cancer, too.

    Maybe one is used for a cake baking business or some other sort of commercial use.

    Beware impostors!

    Rarely does an opportunity arise to purchase a true bungalow therefore an early inspection is advised.

    It seems likely that the basement one is the original, which is now a utility, and the new kitchen is in the living space because that's become acceptable, or even desirable, in 1 bedroom places.
