The tiny bed space has holes in the floor, meaning anyone could just look right up to the mezzanine level – it’s safe to say this might not be to everyone’s taste
A tiny London flat has gone on the market for £575,000 – but there isn’t exactly much privacy in the bedroom.
The tiny bed space has holes in the floor, meaning anyone could just look right up to the mezzanine level.
On the images on the listing, the bed appears to be balanced precariously on the holey floor next to a storage wall.
But if you can get past the unique sleeping space, the one-bed flat – located in Fitzrovia, Westminster – is decked out in trendy furnishings.
The property also offers plenty of natural light, with skylights above the bed and the mezzanine floor helping the light flood through the living area beneath.
The open-plan entertaining space is surprisingly spacious, leading onto the fully-fitted kitchen.
There is even a private patio – a rare offering in central London.
The listing reads: “This fabulous duplex studio apartment with private patio sits within a quiet side street in the heart of trendy Fitzrovia.
Over 500 sq ft of open plan living and entertaining space, comprising an entrance hallway with bathroom and overhead storage, leading to an impressive open-plan split level kitchen/sitting room with wooden flooring and access to a private patio area.
“The spacious galleried bedroom area floats above the living room on an opaque mezzanine floor, allowing light to flood through the apartment thanks to a well-designed light well.

“Hanson Street is located in the heart of Fitzrovia, which offers a great selection of local restaurants, cafes and bars with all the shopping of Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street on your doorstep as well as the amazing outdoor space of Regent’s Park and London Zoo.
“Goodge Street, Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road stations are all within easy walking distance.”
The flat is currently available with Outlet Residential for £575,000.
In more unusual property news, a two-bed bungalow recently went on the market for £350,000 – but there is a nasty surprise in the front garden.
Buyers will have to put up with the huge electricity pylon that sits right in front of the living room.
Unsurprisingly, the property is £75,000 less than the average house price in the street, which is located in Nursling, Southampton.
Images show a large, metal pylon, complete with layers of barbed wire and a “danger” sign, located directly in front of the main door.
The entrance hall and a bedroom are located at the front of the property, meaning the metal structure is clearly visible as soon as you look out.
Other unusual homes we’ve seen in recent months include a three-bed house that went on sale for £169 – but it’s not quite the deal you think.
The property was marked down in price in error and is actually on sale at £169,000.
