    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

    This thread never fails to remind me that, if I ever market my place, I must remember to remove the dolls from their display case and replace with some innocuous charity shop vases before the photographer comes around.

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

    Not quite. See above. The other side of London but Uxbridge >> Brentwood. I'm sure anyone who knows both towns will understand.
