    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

    It's a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom house.

    That's a different bathroom for each of my daily visits

    Back-to-back houses certainly weren't rare although relatively few survived the slum clearences.

    I owned a "back to back" until about 18 months ago. I loved it. With windows only to the front elevation and surrounded on the other three sides by other dwellings it was very cosy and economical to heat although I suppose I was lucky being the side facing south

    It was three stories high. The ground and side walls were thick stone but the upper two stories were separated from our back neighbour by just a single brick wall. I could have held a conversation with the neighbour while we lay in our beds if I had wanted, I guess when they were built in 1865 household noise was not such an issue. We had some work done so included some sound proofing which was pretty effective although I was still nervous of experiencing what my next door neighbour did when the chap behind him sent a brick through when hanging something on the wall.

    Aren't they just!

    The one that struck me - still got a sticky label on the loo. Promptly interpreted by me as = If they don't even deal with tiny little tasks like removing that, then goodness knows how much work the house needs doing.

    Poor thing. If it's alone it won't be happy. The site, though allegedly 'extensive,' isn't large enough either.

    I'm playing catch up, but that house is truly extraordinary. I'm not quite sure what it says about an owner when

    1. They have more plastic on the floor than in one of Dexter's kill rooms.
    2. They have more stone angels than an episode of Dr Who.. I'd be scared to close my eyes in bed at night.
