Wheres the loo Tiny west London studio flat with kitchen


The London rental market is undoubtedly one of the world’s most expensive, swallowing up an average 30% of tenants’ pay before tax.

Anyone looking to pay less than £1,000 for a studio flat may be interested in a small bargain in west London. 

At just 3.89m x 3.3m – the living/bedroom/kitchen room in Barons Court is undeniably compact for modern living. It described as a ‘good size living space, that is presented in neutral décor,’ by Rightmove in its listing here.

Situated near West Kensington tube station, the third floor studio costs £875 a month to rent. 

It requires no deposit and is available for long-let. A floor plan shows a bunk bed inches away from a small kitchenette, allowing the resident to literally step out of bed to make breakfast.

The bottom bunk could act as a sofa in the small living area, although no other space is available.

Pictures show a shower within the studio but it is not clear where the toilet is and there is also no bathroom door.

The flat is on the third floor of a building on Castletown Road, not far from Fulham.

Rightmove features two other properties in the same ‘wonderful brick-built building’. A 5.92m x 3.81m studio flat on the lower ground floor has access to a back patio area, and is the market for £1,550 per month – but again, curiously features no toilet.

Another studio flat on the ground floor of the property resembles a bedroom at 3.78m x 3.58m and is marketed at £975 per month. 

A bargain studio flat of just £563 per month is located just a short walk away on Castletown Road, featuring a bed, kitchenette and shower. 

Local amenities including a Michelin-starred pub called The Harwood Arms and an array of shops.  HG is the area’s award-winning butchers and there is also a wine bar, Vagabond, nearby with famed food platters. 

Small properties with large price tags are a regular occurence in the capital. In March, a tiny studio flat in Belsize Park – which didn’t even have a bed – was on the market for a £900-a-month.

The miniscule apartment is even smaller than the six-yard box on a football pitch. However, the estate agent described the tiny, furnished property as ‘fantastic’.

And in Russia Dock Woodland – just opposite the Thames from Canary Wharf – a one-bedroom flat with an oven yards from the bed was marketed for couples at almost £1,000 a month in February.

The studio-style property has a double bed, kitchen and wardrobe all crammed into a single small room.

Would-be renters were left aghast that the flat was valued at £950-a-month to rent. Twitter user Gigibee said: ‘Housing in London is just a joke.’

Emma Jones commented: ‘You can have a four-bed house with off road parking and a garage for that where I live.’

Morris wrote: ‘The idea that you basically have to spend a grand a month to wake up in your kitchen really stresses me out. This city man.’

In August, one of Britain’s tiniest flats sold for an eye-watering £325,000 – despite being the size of a garden shed.

The tenth-floor apartment in central London measured just 143sq ft, and is just a stone’s throw away from Harrods and Harvey Nichols in the exclusive borough of Knightsbridge.

Directly opposite the bed, a shelf attached to the back of the kitchenette could 'be used as a dining table if stools are place underneath it'

The sale of the ‘micro-penthouse’ in Princes Court, on the Brompton Road, equated to £2,272 per sq ft – making it one of the priciest ever sales in London. 

The apartment was described as ideal for ‘staff’ who may work for a super-rich family with a bigger apartment in the same building.
