    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 do not understand this house and the floor plan is not helping.

    Unmodernised house with an... unfitted kitchen.

    https://www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/details/49747220?search_identifier=76245a13fb61257e9bca90e cce5d5a3c

    Not sure what's going on with that room with the green squares wallpaper - I *think* it might be a sliding wardrobe that has wallpaper on the doors.

    Although its proximity to Finchley Central Station will have added a sizable chunk to the asking price.

    Anyway, looks like a huge white elephant from where I am!

    As they've been there for decades, that could've happened a long time ago in a colour scheme far, far away.....

    Why do the windows in pictures 8 and 15 have weird black smudges around them?

    Thought this was interesting as to attitude of agents! 2 different listings for the same house. Even the photo of the front of the house shows who worked hardest or had better camera skills. I bet the big red car belongs to the agent, not the house!

    Crazy with this property though, as the USP is the building site, not the questionable lifestyle features.
