    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

    Not sure if I had the bedroom in picture 6 that I would want anyone else in the house having guests coming round after 9 at night.

    Or is it just my browser (Chrome) doesn't like the settings from EA?

    Anyone work out what they are doing in the garden?
    Why are they cutting the grass with a strimmer?
    I must say I do like what they've done with the conservatory, I love the 'outside in' vibe.

    I'd be surprised if anyone buys it before the building works are completed.

    The agent describes this property as rather 'quirky' and I would agree. Rather like it though

    Love it, apart from the thatched roof. Looks like next door has tiles? Can't even find this bungalow on the road. All others look like they're tiled not thatch? Idiot owners thatched a modern bungalow? Doubt they'll find buyers particularly fast unless they've allowed for price of removing thatch. But who knows - I know nothing about Norfolk house prices.

    It reminds me of the approach to Hale Village which we drive through on our way to the Nature Reserve of Pickerings Pastures. Plus daughter lived there for a while, but in a slated roof Grade II listed building. As you approach the village you go past a load of my guess is 1930s houses that are thatched. Most of them have thatch that looks moldy, horrid and damp. But even so probably a fire hazard? I find that road rather creepy! It has something strange about it, Hale Village is fine, it's just the weirdo approach road makes me scared!

    On street view there is a white car parked on the verge outside. Taken a while ago I'd guess - the front door isn't painted.

    I rather like it myself, but questions would have to be:

    1. Has anyone got any plans to build on that land at the back (that would be part of my reason for buying it)

    2. How much to swop the roof? - and I like thatched roofs - but wouldnt want a house that had one.
    Like Frankie said - I did it my way.

    As it's a pretty up-together, brand new golf course which has had much investment, I'd imagine it's safer from building than the average field. Of course, business ventures can fail.

    A new roof might be as cheap as £15k if the original timbers are still there and sound. Otherwise, look north of that.
