Cramped studio flat with £900-a-month rent doesn’t appear to have room for a bed

A house on the rental market for £900-a-month is situated in one of London’s most desirable locations – but there also appears to be a glaring absence in the set up.

The cosy studio flat is on the doorstep of Belsize Park underground station, shops and pubs, as well as being a short distance from the green areas of Primrose Hill, Regent’s Park and Hampstead Heath to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

It comes already furnished with a dark leather sofa and a small table at the window, but there appears to be no bed – nor the room to accommodate one.

The 7.24m by 2.59m flat would struggle to provide the room for the sofa to extend out into a bed – unless you wanted to sleep with your feet on the hob – with the entire floorpan providing 22.48 square metres of space.

That includes a bathroom close to the entrance door of the flat, housing a shower, toilet and sink, which is not featured in the pictures of the advert on Zoopla.

However, the flat is located in a stunning white town house consisting of four storeys and has access to a large garden at the rear, meaning it is simply the price you have to pay to live in this area of the capital.

It is listed with Goldschmidt & Howland, which has two other properties in the same building, both with beds included at rental costs of £800 and £1,100 per month.

The flats are described as: “A selection of well presented studio apartments situated 0.2m from Belsize Park underground station and the local amenities that Belsize Park has to offer.

“These fantastic studio flats are inclusive of all utilities and benefit from having free wifi and an onsite maintenance team. Belsize Avenue is ideally located 0.2m from Belsize Village.”
