    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

    What about the access on the 1st floor with the Jack n Jill bathroom between the games room and hallway. You'd need to go down to the kitchen to get back upstairs if the bath was in use!

    Does anyone understand this new trend for awful de-saturated photos? I think they make everything look cold and stark ...

    Like this http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-55364854.html especially the lounge

    and those photoshopped skies ... arrrgghh

    I'm really confused as to why this house has two kitchens!!!

    Maybe they had installed the one in the basement and were planning to take out the galley kitchen in the living room, but just hadn't got around to it? (or vice versa, I suppose)

    The poster was referring to the wishy-washy Photoshopped style which that particular agent uses.

    Here's another of theirs at random:

    If you look very hard you'll see a square in every shot.

    But really - I don't have OCD but my OCD is off the scale with that carpeting.

    It never fails to baffle me how some people cannot be bothered to even tidy up / clean / put their sack of quality potatoes away before the EA arrives to take photographs... I get that the house may be tenanted but even if I was renting I would be horribly embarrassed for someone to photograph my home in such a state. Probably upset with the landlord for selling....
