    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

    Spot the sheep, the race track and the typical EA speak. I used to drive past that place regularly and the name always amused me even when it was being built One day I must find out it's origins

    Is the name not just an ironic name for a new house as it was in 2006?

    I love how the picture is titled 'the hole', just in case people wondered what it was

    ETA. On second view perhaps not. Whoever it is, looks rather odd!

    I wondered if, perhaps,"he" might be Peters, but a little research makes this somewhat unlikely, as Peters died in 1992.

    He wasn't the luckiest of guys. His Wiki entry begins:

    "Peters.... was blinded in one eye during a car accident when he was five years old. A thrown brick blinded his other eye when he was sixteen...."

    It's sad; if he wasn't dead, the muddle in the house would all make perfect sense!

    I was thinking about this today and remembered that one of their hits was "Welcome Home" and, although I have no idea if it features on that particular record, I do think that it was carefully placed in the photo to send a message. We cannot know the circumstances behind this sale but it does appear to be very sad.

    EA says, "This property can only be described with one word.....WOW!"

    Unless they are referring to the triffid, I think I'm missing something...
