Tiny London studio flat with ‘bedroom’ up a ladder is all yours for £800 a month

Ah, London rents. Just when you think you’ve seen them all, another absurdly-priced studio flat comes along to surprise you.

Today’s is a property that’s been compared to Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs, and sits in the posh area of Fulham.

It’s going for £800 a month, which is pretty standard for a studio in London (perhaps even comparatively cheap? That might be our warped Londoner brains talking), but once you see the pictures, expect to be filled with rage.

That’s because this ‘flat’ is not only small, but it’s also in an attic, and the ‘bedroom’ area can only be accessed by clambering up a ladder.

What fits inside the space is impressive, in a way.

There are kitchen appliances, a washing machine, a chest of drawers, and even a bed – on a bunk-style wooden structure built up towards the ceiling.

There’s also a stylish exposed brick wall and a window. Luxurious.

The bathroom and shower is elsewhere in the property, to be shared with other residents.

A posting on Gumtree states: ‘Self-contained small size second floor studio flat to let in the trendy and popular area of Fulham south-west London.

‘Flat has own kitchen area with mini hob cooker, fridge and sink, communal washing machine for building, separate shower room with toilet for flat as well!

‘Wooden floors, good value and great location, access to Fulham Broadway tube.”

‘Rent includes all bills except electricity. Single wanted only with good references a must.

‘One year let minimum.’

The property is also listed on Prime Location, but only with an image of the shower. It appears the listing on Zoopla has been removed.

Housing campaign group Acorn has criticised the letting, calling the flat a ‘complete disgrace’.

‘This is simply not a suitable place for someone to live in and call a home, and the landlord should feel ashamed not only for letting it out in the first place but for charging such an extortionate rent,’ said a spokesperson for the group.

‘As long as our housing system is built on the pursuit of profit, this kind of thing will continue to happen as greedy landlords try to line their pockets by letting out properties that are unsuitable for habitation.

‘It’s time we built a housing system that puts people before profit – leaving it to the whims of the market has completely failed.’
