    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

    "mid-century townhouse" - polite way of putting it!

    I don't think it's bad.

    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.....

    The property itself is a bit of a dog too!

    Hideous conversion IMO.

    Not sure about the windows!
    At least you can't see them from the inside.

    I think there is a door missing on the floor plan, as you say from lounge to inner hall - the blurb says: The spacious lounge/diner boasts a large bay fronted window and has doors to the kitchen, re-fitted bathroom, master bedroom and a patio door to the lean-to.

    Just noticed the blurb also includes the phrase you least expected to hear in an advert:
    "an entomologist's dream".

    Does that mean "our infestation is so notable it's been on the Discovery Channel"?

    The tubes hold the roof up.

    I imagine it was one large space before being converted to flats.
