    The "have a look at this!" thread II 5th Aug 11 at 10:16 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

    This old house seems was up first in jan at 260? But its not sold has it, And with a fixed price for the new house it may be a long wait.

    Probably not the owners car, but a rather homely looking little place

    Yes, totally agree with those downsides, but as you say, someone has indeed looked after it, so much more so, than the 'staged to sell. pictures, we often see.


    And the location to escape to, as long as all the caravans are empty, is really quite an attraction.

    I much prefer my locations to be sorted long before I buy.

    That's like Margaret Mead's famous quote: "Remember you are unique, just like everyone else."

    At the age of 90 she sold her house to a 47 year old man, the conditions of the sale were that the buyer had to pay a fixed monthly sum to her in additional to letting her live there for the rest of her life. Given their ages he no doubt thought this would be a wise investment for his retirement but it didn't quite work out that way as Mrs Calment lived to 122, actually outliving her buyer who died aged 77.

    I am fascinated by this one. Way overpriced considering the length of the lease, so no wonder it is not selling. The furniture, coupled with the lease length, suggests someone older, but there are clear signs of young children. Bathroom modern, kitchen awful. So many possible scenarios ...
