This studio flat in posh Kensington could be yours for £175k – but you have to climb a LADDER into bed

A FLAT in sought-after Kensington is on the market for just £175,000 – but you have to climb a ladder to get into bed.

The 118 square-foot studio on posh Old Brompton Road in London is just a stones-throw from busy Earl's Court tube station.

While the reasonable price tag is a several-million pounds shy of other glamorous pads in the area – the previous owners have had to utilise some clever space-saving techniques to make the small flat liveable.

The new buyer has to climb a wooden ladder to reach the 3m by 79cm bedroom suspended above the kitchenette and bathroom.

The space is just big enough to hold a single mattress.

The kitchen boasts a fitted hob and sink, with ample shelving space above it.

Next to the kitchen is the bathroom, with a shower, sink and fitted toilet.

Estate agent Foxtons said the flat is ideal for a buy-to-let property hunter, but it also offers a sensible "London base" for anyone opting to live outside the capital in the post-pandemic world.

Earls Court Sales Manager Fleur Marston told the Sun: "Our lettings team first let this fantastic studio flat in 2010 and it has been let consistently for the last eleven years.

"It represents exceptionally good value as we have not seen anything on the market in this area at this sort of price point for a long time, with the exception of garages of course!

"It is a phenomenal opportunity for a buy to let investor. However, we have also seen the return of the pied-a-terre market post Covid.

"We have recently experienced a lot of clients who have sold their houses/flats in London in order to buy in the country but, still need to retain a London base.

"Old Brompton Road would definitely also suit a buyer with these requirements."
