    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

    Much more attractive at the back than the front elevation!

    I can identify with that as our current house is not a looker from the lane - butt-ugly in fact - yet it's stunningly pretty from the garden side.....the side that's rarely seen, lol! When we bought it, it was actually one of the things that attracted us. Visitors usually get the 'wow' factor when they see it for the first time

    It certainly wouldn't put me off viewing, although I guess it won't appeal to everyone.

    Not quite up there with Tomb Raider though, is it?

    The numbering is weird as the new house being built is 140. 142 is the house that was posted on here. Next to 140 is 134

    Nice bodge job on the conservatory roof, very "scenic" for relaxing as you play some guitar to try and drown out the washing machine....

    I viewed a bungalow with a sauna a few years ago. I loved the house although it was on for more than I could afford. I had my doubts about the running and maintenance costs of the sauna. Use it in the gym but don't stay in too long so think a sauna in a house would be an expensive waste of space.

    Eventually that house was reduced by £100K. The EA assured me that the subsidence had been dealt with but it was sold before I had another viewing.

    Still not sure what I would have done with the sauna though.

    This might be one of the weirdest floorplans I've seen:

    Cute house though, I'd live in it if it weren't for the location.

    you can see the house the other side of the back fence through the bedroom window pic 7.

    and on street view down the road to the right side.
