    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

    Isn't that the same part of the world that the other purple house was in? Maybe that's where they moved to.

    And if buying a house isn't expensive enough, here's another £3000 to pay! Is this normal on a non auction house? http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-60475303.html

    Looks like some agents are still finding the trendy close-up photography challenging...Pic18....

    and trust that bu99er next door to go and have one of their smelly bonfires...Pic 15.

    Nothing like damning with faint praise either:

    "Almost a picture postcard traditional cottage..." and " in this unspoilt part of the Pembrokeshire countryside where peace virtually reigns supreme." (Apart from the neighbour with the smelly bonfire and barking dog, perhaps?)

The biology lab in my school had the late school python stuffed and displayed, the snake was so lumpy it looked like the taxidermy had been carried out in house using scrunched up newspaper.

    I can't believe this was granted planning permission...can you imagine trying to relax in your living room of an evening with all that footfall going directly past your window / noise and deliveries from the shops next door (on both sides). Has the London property market really gotten this desperate though I guess at least you don't have far to trek for a pint of milk and a packet of biscuits

    I'm more concerned about the lack of a comma between kitchen and bathroom. If folk thing having a washing machine in their kitchen is unhygienic...

    Also, HOW MUCH?!
