Studio flats are always compact, but one property listing left renters outraged after the landlord sandwiched a single bed between the wall and the kitchen, with the sink and cooker within arm’s reach.  

Twitter user Lieke, spotted the studio flat in West Kensington, London, on property website Zoopla and tweeted a photograph writing: ‘Randomly browsing apartments on Zoopla for no reason and I came across this. London housing is such a joke.’

The £390 per month room boasts of being a fully-furnished ‘bedsit situated within a large Victorian house’, with a shared bathroom and its own kitchen.

It also states that the ‘compact studio room’ has a single bed, wardrobe and is accessible to many amenities located between West Kensington and Baron’s Court stations.

The flat has attracted over 1,433 page views since it was first listed in November, however no one has rented the property which has a minimum letting of six months.

Aimed at students and professionals, the listing explains the tenant can expect on street parking, many shops, restaurants and gyms within walking distance. 

The landlord claims the property is easily accessible to the M4, A4, A40 and Heathrow Airport. 

They also add the flat is furnished with an oven, microwave and fridge/freezer and a range of units.

The listing doesn’t state if the tenant will be expected to pay a deposit or if the bills are included in the rent. 

A photograph of the property shows the kitchen appliances and dated units strategically placed along a wall.

Opposite, a single bed has been squeezed into the apartment leaving minimal floor space and no area for a sofa. 

The dimly lit ‘studio’ flat appears to have a wardrobe, chest of drawers and small fridge. But the landlord appears to think that the bed will also double as a table by placing a chair next to it.  

Lieke commented on Twitter that she has seen ‘jail cells bigger’ than the property.
