    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 is the biggest back garden I've ever seen on on a suburban 3 bed house.

    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-68361530.html#location

    On the satellite view it's 10 houses to the left of the grey dot, next door to the house with the solar panels.

    This one has a 320 foot garden, a little over a third of an acre in total.

    The thought of showering with Saddam Hussein was bad enough, then it was Lenin turning his back to the seating arrangements and the sitting room with dead animals. But the worst of all is the thought of sleeping with what seems to be a more than life size kamikaze pilot. Shudder.

    I have to confess there are a few things I really like in that house (the sanitaryware, green high-backed sofa & huge palms for starters) but these are outweighed many, many times over by stuff I definitely couldn't live with

    Devon can be quite cheap if one stays away from the tourist hot spots. Plenty of choice around 250k - 300k, from olde worlde cottages to modern bungalows, just right for a quiet, easy retirement.

    And then there's this: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-61738162.html

    That's a rather large bedroom 21' 8" x 12' 4" (6.619m max x 3.768m max)

    No householder charges here and - for now at least - garden waste collection in wheelie bins is still FOC. Good job too as our council tax is ridiculously high

    One thing we have noticed since moving to the West Midlands is that the tip recycling centre doesn't have a resale area. Not sure if that's the same in other parts of the country, but back in Wiltshire (and previously in both Essex and Hampshire) there were sections set aside for the sale of the *better class of rubbish*

    My council's bulky waste is 20 for first item and 3.50 for each subsequent item. If the other items are electrical - its an extra 1 for subsequent items.

    When I had my washing machine delivered by a local firm, they charged me 5 extra for disposing of the old one. I have seen others in the area having other white goods delivered and don't pay the 5 for disposing as seen their broken appliance on top of their drive. Why didn't they pay the electrical showroom the 5, I don't know.

    My tips don't have a resale area. Though I had people taking my stuff away when I took them to the tip. One time, I got rid of some picture frames as the backs went. Someone said they are the sort he was after and took them off me. Another time it was a round veg rack on wheels as he was going to convert the baskets into flower baskets by welding some chains at the rims.

    This one's a little bizarre, a 2 bed semi with 2 kitchens. Aside from that weirdness it looks quite a nice house.

    They do have some books on shelves which is always a positive for me. Otherwise, love how creative and discrete the EA has been in the description.
