A luxury postcode TWO BED apartment in West London is available to rent for £875 a month – but tenants will really have to like each other.
The furnished property – described dangerously as “uniquely sized” by permissively optimistic staffers – is located inside a lovely five-story residence in Barons Court.
But just a glance at the Rightmove ad reveals a huge benefit to potential tenants.
This small studio features two oddly stacked beds, with a single mattress tucked beneath a wooden bunk-style structure.
Whoever takes the top bunk will have to climb a ladder every time they want to make 40 winks – even though at least their bed is a double.
Meanwhile, the apartment also has a corner shower, which is grooved against the front door.
People you choose to share a communal space with won’t have any privacy – even while they’re washing their hair.
There are other precious things in the apartment, no floor space for a sofa.
The kitchenette has only a fridge, sink, kettle and microwave.
And there is no obvious toilet in the room, and no mention of one in the ad.
Despite its obvious downsides, the apartment is likely to attract a lot of attention from soon-to-be residents.
It is located in a very trendy part of the capital and is located just minutes from the two main Underground stations, West Kensington and Barons Court.
It is also located just around the corner from Queens Tennis Club, while many restaurants, pubs and bars are a short walk away.
Foxtons agents say that “light and airy” properties are available for a long time.
“Located on the third floor of a unique brick building, this studio-style apartment offers a moderate-sized living space with neutral décor,” they said.
“Barons Court offers a range of local amenities, including award-winning butcher, HG. Walter.”
Budget hunters will know that finding the perfect property in London is no easy task.
A luxury Holland Park one-bed house is on the market for £802 – but it has two big problems.
The first is that new tenants can’t expect much in daylight as the only outside window has been completely covered by a scaffolding tower.
The roofing has been painted over the structure, which means there will be no sunlight for the duration of the work.
And occupants will be advised to keep the blinds drawn, or risk seeing the craftsmen at work during their day.
Meanwhile, the bed can be found on a pedestal near the ceiling.
Going to drink water at night will be very dangerous, tenants are forced to step out in a hidden corner before finding the first step.
Elsewhere, a room in Willesden, in the north-west of the city, is available for as little as £450 a month.
However, there is a good reason for the low rents.
The space has only bed and kitchen – and the room was so small that the occupants could cook their dinner while hiding under the blankets.
