    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

    Can anyone figure out what is going on with the upstairs floorplan here? There appears to be no door into the bathroom or Bedroom 2, and Bedroom 1 has a separate empty space off it!?

    Thinks....now wondering if a garden as bare as that one is evidence that the vendor never planned on staying in the house for long right from Day 1...

    I think it's the light switch, we had the exact same one in a rental - bl**dy awful thing as the weight bit was so heavy it would gradually take the paint off the wall if it so much as swung towards it.

    Me neither.

    Nor have I ever seen the inside wall of a shower lined with either plastic, or a shower curtain. Pic 12. I wonder why

    Googling, the stove appears to be a very pricey bit of kit but it looks rather like a spare part for a Dyson to me

    I have no comment regarding the kitchen.

    I suspect that there shouldn't be a wall at the top of the stairs. If that were open then there is a door from bed 2 and the main bathroom.

    In bed1 the space could be used as a dressing area or a wardrobe area as in walk in wardrobe.

    What a ridiculously small living room compared to the kitchen diner. And a 4 bed? What were they thinking?

    At least it isn't wooden doors with handles and carved details.

    I knew when I read "unique design" I was in for a treat.....not sure pic 4 is my cup of tea.

    Garden is "totally un overlooked"....ok thanks for clearing that up!
