    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

    I've finally found something worth posting having read this thread for months . Can't post the full link

    rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-53086863.html

    "GUIDE PRICE 200,000* PLUS 5% BUYERS PREMIUM + VAT"
    What does that even mean?

    "A THREE BEDROOM post-war semi-detached house with inherent modernisation potential"

    Come on people, it's not difficult: lose means to be unable to find, loose means not being fixed in place. So if you have a hole in your pocket you might lose your loose change.

    Not sure if it's against Thread Rules to include an overseas option for anyone looking to relocate to the San Francisco Bay area.

    Seems suitable for someone with a guide dog.

    It's rather cheeky of the owner, to leave the wall art, on picture 15.

    My only thoughts about it really were how similar the kitchen is to mine and "Damn - I knew I shoulda had my showerhead put on the facing wall". So only personal comments on my feelings about it.....
