One-bed flat so small you have to roll out of bed – and rent is £930 a month


A tiny London flat with an unusually low ceiling above the bed is up for rent, at nearly £1,000 a month.

The new occupier would likely have to roll out of the bed in the property on the market at Hornsey Lane, Haringey.

Pictures of the one-bed studio flat show thick black-painted beams all the way through the cosy interior.

Low windows are also set into the floor and the space afforded for the single bed is beneath a slanted section of the ceiling, which could prove a tight squeeze with the tenant forced to crawl or roll out of bed each morning.

The home is up for grabs for an eye-watering £930 per month, and it doesn’t include the cost of any bills.

Most of the studio is made up of the living space, and the single bed is wedged into the side of the room.

A small kitchen with a breakfast bar is also featured along with a single bathroom with a toilet.

Agents at Open Rent said of the property: “We are proud to offer this delightful one-bedroom, one-bathroom studio flat in a great location.”

The 12-month tenancy is also available either with or without furnishings, with the choice up to the tenant.

The maximum number of tenants for the property is two people and the agent says that smoking, pets or families are also forbidden.

The pricey studio comes after advertised rents in some of Britain’s biggest city centres saw annual falls of more than 12 per cent at the end of 2020.

Inner London was hardest hit, with average asking rents falling annually by 12.4 per cent – equivalent to £275 a month.

This was followed by Edinburgh city centre, where the drop in asking rents was also in double digits at 10 per cent (£112), and Manchester city centre, where they were down by 5.3 per cent (£54), according to Rightmove.
