    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

    I think those are alpacas, freshly shaved. They look very clean.

    Pavia???

    Oh, I get it. As in "Dahling, I love the exteria!"

    It's a lovely house in itself and they have some interesting design ideas, it's just that none of them work very well! And certainly not together.

    Wish the interior of the flat was a bit more in sympathy with the interior of the rest of the building. Still very nice.

    Yes, the bland interior is a shame after the rest of it!

    I don't think I've ever seen anything like this before; it looks like they have excavated a tonne of earth outside an existing semi detached house to build a flat in the foundations

    Excellent street view, spot the dodgy parking and low planes, also the bloke with glasses looks fed up.

    If you look at the other end of that group of houses on Street View, the one with the rather inappropriate rustic oak fence shows that these properties are built on a steep slopes in both directions, so have basements. It seems some have them exposed at the front, others not.

    The house with the flat for sale had some kind of hole there. There's a plastic crush barrier in front of it. Looks like a developer bought the place when it was run-down.

    Anyway, yes, the hole's much larger now!

    EdIt: That flat hasn't much natural light, whatever the bright pictures imply.

    So this one is for sale "By Order of The Government Legal Department."

    Wonder who's had their asset seized?

    (Well it doesn't look like a government-owned bolt hole!)

    Anyway, it's inaccurate to say Chulmleigh's a village. Yes, I have now driven right through it twice, in daytime, without seeing a single living soul, but it has a Town Hall and a mayor.

    and also looks like they divided off the back of the house and put a front door right next to existing front door.

    Golf, anyone?

    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-46335414.html

    I'm actually disappointed. I saw this property listing a few months back and the decor was even more 'interesting'. Seems it was taken down while the owner toned it down a little and then re-listed it with new photos.

    Good call dave, a few beers and The Who through my headphones, pure magic, what a great band. (I have to have headphones, the missus don't go too much on my music, she likes only 1 or 2 records of my Pink Floyd collection but I have seen her tapping her feet to Squeezebox by The Who.
