    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

    What better use for a front garden than to have someone else's dwelling in it? Answers on a post card...

    It's really the tradesperson's entrance though, as the (ex-LA) house has a huge south-facing rear garden with garaging.

    Anyway it looks as if Mr Grumpy, the former neighbour, visible in Street View, has moved to higher things than an old person's bungalow. The agent's photo shows an entirely different style of garden....not at all to my taste, but could be much worse!
    If you are finding huge gaps between your paragraphs, MSE know about the problem. However, they aren't necessarily doing anything about it. More changes on the way?

    Nice looking building though, from the outside, and so cheap.

    Agreed. That would have to be one heck of a carefully-chosen window covering on that window to look like it was meant. Though I guess one could replace the window with an obscure glass one.

    I think I'd be most bothered about the neighbour that has put dormer windows in their roof - very intrusive. It would be quite a challenge/dont know if it would be possible at all to block them out of sight in the garden.
