    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

    Needs a load of work doing on it. Kitchen - pokey and original cupboards. Bathroom waste of space as it's in 'three rooms' and original suite

    Being a Listed Building prevents one doing the very thing that should be done with that place. 3.5 acres also going to waste!

    Perhaps if we all chip in we can have a MSE collective pad.

    I'm surprised at myself liking it too..... architecturally it's a bit modern for my usual taste, lol Really like the amount of land that comes with it also.....

    I know, I know...insurance for a thatched cottage - wooden worksurfaces need attention and the garden is a wilderness...roaring log fires and bonfire night come with nightmares of flaming thatch but it is just lovely

    Thank you.


    I've driven past Parliament House many, many times and always felt intrigued by it.


    It's even lovelier and larger than I imagined.


    Of course, way beyond what I could afford and don't often go past now.

    Agreed, the more I look at it the more I find that kitchen growing on me. It's certainly preferable to a lot of the high gloss kitchens which currently seem to be popular (I'm convinced in 20 years time these will be viewed much the same way avocado bathrooms are now).

    I also quit like the retro display unit in pic 5, although I think I'll pass on the fireplace.

    Doesn't help with access to the two smaller bedrooms using the spiral staircase (unless want to walk through the master bedroom using the proper stairs)

    AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT, is one way of describing this unique home. The Detail to attention is what makes this super two bedroom first floor flat really stand out from the crowd, you would be forgiven upon entering for not realising that you are indeed in a Central town location,once inside it really does feel like you are in a country cottage due to the beautiful chic interior.

    Really!!
