    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

    If I didn't know that Davesnave was a fine, upstanding member of his local community, I might suspect a double entendre or two. But neither he nor I would stop so low.

    It's certainly no advert for how to install central heating!

    This has to be the shortest lease I have ever seen. Isnít the statutory minimum before you can extend after purchasing 2 years anyway?!?

    It does look like a nice house = yep go for it.

    Then one reads "oil fired central heating" and thinks "Damn = hassle and expense to get shot of that then - but manageable".

    But the killer for someone like myself (ie non car-owner) would be that road and "Next please.....(darn it)".

    Though that field next door is a concern as well - as my first thought woulda been "Bet that farmer ain't organic - so nasty chemical spraying at intervals", closely followed by "Bet that farmer is gonna try and sell that field for more housing at some point". Gawd - why does living on Planet Earth make one so cynical years down the line of doing so?

    Define "a peaceful country setting"?

    Should have said "now you can feel like a catseye with the proximity to the M77"!

    Which I once thought meant = take at face value, ie it's conveniently-located.

    But then learnt that that is used to mean "lots of traffic noise - and not for me personally".
