    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

    There's something not quite right about pic 1 - I can't quite put my finger on what it is...

    That's handy. A downstairs toilet with its very own front entrance via a second hall/front door . Perhaps they ought to charge passersby for the convenience.

    But what is that on the bedroom wall in pic 6?

    At a guess, I'd say a forced warm air heating system. There doesn't appear to be any radiators on the walls of the rooms..

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    Some sort of heater, the wall it's on is a chimney breast, so the bedroom probably had its own fireplace when first built

    Strange...there's a radiator in the refurbed shower room presumably powered by a boiler somewhere.
    And looks like there might be a radiator behind the sofa in pic 3 but all looks very partial.

    Very useful if they were of the gardener-employing class. But they're not.

    I think the heater may be an old electric flush wall-mounted radiant fire that's been boarded over.

    Compact and bijou for sure.

    Surely they could have given the toilet a wall and a door.

    A 2,000,000 flat with a Homebase kitchen

    We had those exact same units in our old maisonette, which we sold for less that 100,000 a couple of years ago.

    The bathroom radiator / towel rail looks like a bit of a bodge job, too.

    My God! That's one expensive rent for what's effectively a bog with a sleeping & cooking area attached! London prices never fail to stun me....
