House hunting renters have been left horrified by the price of a tiny studio flat that features a bed and shower - in the kitchen.
The £1,083-per-month property is so small that it has no room for a toilet. Instead, would-be tenants are required to share a loo with others elsewhere in the building. The shower, which is directly next to the home's front door, is sandwiched next to the kitchenette that has no room for an oven. There is space for a microwave and a sink, however, whilst a washing machine just about fits under the basin in close proximity to a mini fridge. A double bed is wedged just inches away from the kitchen space and a two-seater dining table.
Despite it's rudimentary size, the Hammersmith, West London pad has been marketed on Zoopla as a "larger than average double semi-studio" by letting agent, Spacelet. The staggering price does include all bills though, and the flat does benefit from a residential parking place.
A full description reads: "A larger than average double semi-studio situated within a large Victorian house. Situated in-between West Kensington and Baron’s Court stations with lots of amenities in the area. Fully furnished, own kitchenette, private shower & shared WC. Comprises of: Large bright double flat with a huge bay window providing lots of natural light and ventilation. Furnished with a double bed, built-in wardrobes, chest of drawers, small table and chairs. Own private kitchenette with a built-in hob with combined mini oven, microwave, washing machine, fridge/freezer, fitted stainless steel sink unit and a range of wall and base units. Private shower. Shared WC."
Reacting to its price, one dismayed renter asked: "Genuinely, how is this allowed to not have a toilet?" Anotgher complained: "There's zero storage." A third fumed: "That's someone's downstairs living room."
A fourth wrote: "At first it looked like a lovely bedroom but then I realised it was everything." And a fifth questioned: "How are you supposed to open the door to the washing machine?"
