    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

    Looking at new homes at the moment in Kent. Seems someone decided to put a gym in their front room! The mind boggles from some of these pictures..

    The fact that it is "near Waitrose" is far more important than listing what town/city the property is in!

    This one's an EA tease, and they're clearly hoping it will go for more than the asking price. Strange layout, but that new garage is crying out to be put to better use.....

    An interrupted project, obviously. Lets hope more of it is building regs compliant than the oil tank placement. Pity about the telegraph pole too....

    Anyway, spot the cat!

    Proximity to Waitrose is paramount.

    Well...splutter.....I just don't know what to say, apart from that this house should be preserved as a museum.
    How on earth could anyone actually live in it? Id be fascinated to see it in person.

    I would guess the problem is that you couldn’t live with it, and you wouldn’t feel right pulling it all out.

    I would have thought the best which could be hoped for was some kind of preservation but I don’t suppose his son has the means to do that (or wouldn’t be selling) and obviously he father wasn’t notable enough to attract ‘funding’ for such an endeavour.

    In the end I expect someone will just rip it all out, which seems a shame, but then again i’m not offering him the cash to look after it either...
