Pokey flat on the market for £1,300 a month… but the bed may put some renters off | The Sun

A POKEY flat has gone on the market for £1,300 a month – but the bed may put some renters way off.

At first glance the studio flat in posh Maida Vale, London, seems an attractive proposition.



But any potential new residents may have second thoughts after seeing the bed.

It is accessed by a bizarre looking chunky staircase – with the last step up quite a leap.

And the bed's platform is made up of scaffolding poles which have been painted white.

The bed itself is just a mattress on top of the DIY-looking structure.

A curtain can be pulled to split it from the rest of the studio.

And potential buyers may not be happy that the bedroom is so small you can’t even stand up in it.

Elsewhere in the studio flat, there is a tiny living room with just enough room for a sofa, a table and two chairs and a wardrobe and chest of drawers.

There is a small kitchen with a cooker and hob, sink and washing machine squeezed in.

The bedsit in swanky North West London does have a separate bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet.

Listed on the market with OpenRent the property is advertised for up to two tenants despite its size.

The listing reads: “Lovely bright studio flat on Kilburn High Rd. 

“Loft style sleeping area with bills included. Close to transport and Kilburn Grange Park.”

As well as the whopping rent, prospective dwellers will also have to stump up a £1,500 deposit.

The rental ad says that bills are included and the bedsit comes fully furnished.

However, there are no pets are allowed, there is no garden or parking.

It comes after house hunters were put off by a creepy feature in a three-bedroom house worth £180k.
