There are two houses on the road opposite us (next to each other in a terrace). They are exactly.the.same. The colour of the window surrounds, the front doors, the decorations on the wall, the blinds in the windows and now there are identical pots in the front gardens, with identical bamboo canes in them!! There's probably other stuff I can't remember, but every detail is identical.

What is going on?! Aibu to go knock and ask?

Im more bewildered by your post

Probably a developer did both of them up at the same time.

LinoleumBlownapart Sun 11-Feb-18 21:12:25

They are owned by the same person.

WorraLiberty Sun 11-Feb-18 21:12:57

Exactly what GertrudeCB said. There's similar in the next road to me.

Either that or identical twins have moved in.

ooh, maybe parents living apart or a couple living together but apart like helena bonham carter and her now ex used to. With a tunnel in between!

One is a nice woman and the other is super envious copy cat friend!?

PurplePotatoes Sun 11-Feb-18 21:13:21

Maybe knocked through ?

Isadora2007 Sun 11-Feb-18 21:13:59

It’s the wottingers and the pontypines surely? Do they have multiple kids!?!?

furryelephant Sun 11-Feb-18 21:18:19

Best call 101 and log it!

Belindabauer Sun 11-Feb-18 21:19:10

I was thinking the same as Gertrude

Bdayupset Sun 11-Feb-18 21:22:39

I don't think it's a developer. Some things have appeared after others.

Sadonions, what's bewildering about my post?!

WhatWouldLeslieKnopeDo Sun 11-Feb-18 21:23:47

Maybe it's one of those MNers who posts that their neighbour is copying everything they buy.

TwitterQueen1 Sun 11-Feb-18 21:25:40

I have no idea what your problem is here. What, exactly, is your issue with this?

blaaake Sun 11-Feb-18 21:28:04

Behave TwitterQueen1 anybody would think it was a bit weird

Rebeccaslicker Sun 11-Feb-18 21:28:05

Are they using it for filming maybe?

WorraLiberty Sun 11-Feb-18 21:30:45

I don't think it's a developer. Some things have appeared after others.

Why would that mean it's not a developer?

SneakyGremlins Sun 11-Feb-18 21:30:57

Could they be doing it for TV or something?

MaireadMacSweeney Sun 11-Feb-18 21:32:49

I've seen houses like this and in my head they belong to identical twins smile

DwangelaForever Sun 11-Feb-18 21:33:18

@WorraLiberty cause you would assume a developer would do the same changes at the same time?

ReasonableLlama Sun 11-Feb-18 21:33:45

My nan lived next to my aunt and uncle for a while. When something needed doing like windows, the drive, the roof etc they both both got it done at the same time. The houses looked similar anyway but as the years went on and the Work/changes happened the two houses looked more and more similar.

Could that be it?

LRDtheFeministDragon Sun 11-Feb-18 21:34:38

They're owned by the same people who rent them out?

There are literally thousands of houses like this, surely? There's whole streets of them near us. Not exactly a mystery.

BookHelpPlease Sun 11-Feb-18 21:34:40

There was a thread a few weeks ago where the OP though her neighbour kept copying her- down to the pot plants. Perhaps you have found her!

tillytrotter1 Sun 11-Feb-18 21:34:44

They have probably decided between themselves to set this up to see which neighbour, nosy or otherwise, finds it necessary to comment, they probably had a bet about who it would be! Winding up nosy neighbours can be such fun!

A developer on my street has built 2 identical houses which ended up looking the same inside too, but one was completed and on the market a month before the other. It happens
