    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

    OK it's a nice building but this is about 100K more than similar sized properties with parking and no restrictions on holiday letting.

    However, what really caught my eye were the FOUR purpose build bunk beds in the tiny bedroom while the parents luxuriate in their generous double. "Don't bother bringing any toys to our holiday home kids"

    That has got to be one of the best views from a kitchen sink I've seen for a while

    Whilst 9 & 10 are a bit odd and obviously related to the history of the house in someway, 11 is just a wierd photo!

    This one may have been just added to Rightmove, but it was knocking about on this thread some time ago, probably last year, because I still remember it. Someone dug out info about its history, I think.

    It's OK, fun even, but I don't see much value in quirk, especially facing some ex-council houses and with a great rear view of a concrete water tower!

    The garage was never meant for a car. With all that grass, a ride-on mower is most likely in there somewhere.

    Yes I think it was up with another agent earlier this year. I seem to recall photos then seemed to show some possible damp problems.
