    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

    More likely they built a kitchen-extension and didn't get round to removing the old one.

    Or maybe for making charcuterie, my aunt does that in her 2nd kitchen in her place in France.

    The CCTV cameras in the kitchen and lounge and the public-toilet style handwash dispenser on the garden sink add a certain .. well anyway, we know they're normal people because they've got a cheap plastic air-freshener next to the bog.

    But 1.3 MILLION?

    I cannot imagine how that will ever sell! I know you have to look beyond the decor but that would be really hard to do. Nightmare of a house, I only like cream walls and no ornaments!! Tacky and tasteless comes to mind with complete lack of taste.........

    I thought the same, but then remembered comments made by John Cleese and others that if we stop making jokes because it might offend someone, or be inappropriate at some time, then humour itself will die.

    It was only when my dear old Mum died that I noticed how often comedians referred to death. Despite death jokes upsetting me, on reflection, I felt that it was better I was upset than the world be denied the joys of laughter and silliness.

    Quite cleverly extended, from what appears to have been a 2 up 2 down originally.

    Also a decent sized garden.

    Come on people, it's not difficult: lose means to be unable to find, loose means not being fixed in place. So if you have a hole in your pocket you might lose your loose change.

    The worst EPC rating I've seen so far. Realistically, how much more a month would this cost a tenant?
