    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

    Oh dear. That is a depressing house. There's not one appealing thing about it.

    I really can't figure out this "kitchenette" in picture 3. It looks to be a U-shape that isn't actually wide enough to fit a person in, and even if they could squeeze in, surely the cupboards wouldn't fully open??

    Is there some unwritten rule they must all be ugly and garish as possible? It kind of reminds me of this film from a couple of years ago that followed some awful people flaunting their awful wealth to build an awful house;

    Fortunately I don't have £29 mill to spare, so I will never know whether I'd have a need to show off my wealth by buying something quite that pretentious.
