    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 went to spitbank back in about 2003 for a dinner night, it was pretty run down and struggling to pay it's way. Looks amazing now, saving my pennies to go back.

    There are other properties with a bedroom window on the side. One of my friend's parents met as neighbours and they had the bedrooms with windows to the side and spoke to each other.

    It's amazing how unique and homely a place can feel when you buy all your furniture from a catalogue, isn't it?
