    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

    Is that a crochet ceiling?

    I was curious to read this in the description "only shown on sunny days".

    I wonder how many black eyes they have from colliding with statues in the middle of the night

    That ceiling is amazing. I don't know if it's crochet or just made to look like crochet. I'd be scared to sleep in the beds in case a statue fell over. It obviously belongs to someone who loves their home.

    Not only someone who loves their home but someone considerably less clumsy than I am. Plus frankly, a great deal dottier.

    By all means rip the rest out but I feel the need to defend the 1950s fireplace. I think it now counts as retro rather than old fashioned. Actually i think I even like the stairs.
