One lucky tenant might be the new renter for his private en suite bedroom in posh Kensington, but the price is too good to be true.
The apartment is a three minute walk from High Street Kensington tube station and only 12 minutes from Earls Court station, a great location in one of Britain’s most luxurious postcodes.
Although the ad on OpenRent describes the apartment as “recently renovated” with parquet floors, a double bed and an en suite bathroom, the kitchen is very small.
The kitchenette, pressed next to the bed, has a sink crammed alongside a couple of counters and a kettle that seems to balance out in the photos.
A slim washing machine and a foldable chair are also placed in the bedroom.
It seemed that there was nowhere to hang clothes even though there was one chest of drawers and a few shelves.
While the rent does include heating and hot water bills, one local voice criticized the price as being too expensive.
Emma Dent Quad, a member of the Local Labor Council, told MyLondon: “People will be queuing around the building. What a tough time we are living in.”
Property in the town is actually the most expensive property in the UK, costing 36.5 times the average income.
In South Kensington, 80 per cent of homes cost more than £1m and even garages are up for sale for £150,000.
However, about 3,000 locals in Kensington and Chelsea are on the waiting list for council housing.
The owner has been contacted for comment.
