A STUDIO flat has gone on the market in London – but it features some very unusual design decisions.
The tiny property, accessed via a garden gate, is on the market for a whopping £900 a month.

That’s in spite of the fact it contains just a kitchenette and grimy-looking ensuite bathroom.
But most baffling of all is the décor.
Every surface apart from the ceiling has been fitted with tiles.
All of the walls are covered in the huge chilly-looking slabs, while the floor has also been completely tiled.
A single yellow strip light appears to be the only source of electric lighting in the flat – suggesting the building’s original use wasn’t residential.
The little home can be found in Cricklewood Lane, Kilburn.
A Gumtree ad reveals all bills, bar council tax, are included, and there’s both central heating and double glazing
“The property is managed by a private landlord,” it says.
“No admin fees, no referencing fees, no move-in fees.”
A £900 deposit is asked for in advance and the property comes unfurnished.
The new tenant must be willing to sign up for six months – and while smokers are considered, no pets are allowed.
The occupant also won’t be allowed to use the garden of the landlord’s home, meaning they’ll have to cope with the tiny space available.
London is notoriously difficult for flat-hunters on a budget.
One spacious double-bedroom in a trendy postcode is currently available for less than £600 a month – although there’s a huge catch.
At first glance, the room in Haringey, north of the capital, looks like a steal.
But those who prefer their own space may be well advised to skip a viewing.
That’s because the new resident will be sharing the space with 19 other people – as well as two cats.
The room is in a whopping warehouse which has been transformed into accommodation.
And its occupants must be creative types who don’t mind the occasional queue for the bathroom.
Those with more cash fare significantly better.
A spacious apartment in Chelsea is available for £2,838 a month.
It comes fully-furnished with a sofa, bed and what appears to be a grand library.
The bookcase is just a decoy – and it slides apart to reveal a kitchen behind it.
