    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

    Also the Gollys in pic 14 may not be to all tastes (obviously unlikely to come with the house I do realise).

    My mind boggled at the piping thing to cookerhood being out "on show" like that. Guess that equals a DIY(not) person in the household fitted that kitchen - as tubing like that is hidden by wall units in a properly-fitted kitchen (yep...when I had mine done recently - all that piping is up in the loft - courtesy of it being a bungalow). If it had been a "house" - then the wall units would have gone up to the ceiling to hide it.

    *and gollies, which, at the risk of starting a political correctness row, Iíd have kept out of the photos.

    Well, here's a brave developer, gambling on someone coming along to spend £650,000 of their money on this rather smart house and not noticing what has happened to coast road a little further to the East.

    The situation wouldn't put me off, but I'm afraid the house would!
    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?

    But yes....I look nervously at nearby cliffs of the red in colour variety.... and I'd be hazarding a guess that the house location per se might remain okay - but wondering whether the road to access it would be.....
