But there’s one feature in particular that will really get flat-hunters talking.
The property boasts its own hidden BUNKER that can be accessed through a private door on the terrace.
The whopping space lies behind a blast-proof underground door.
And it’s kitted out with its own ventilation system – meaning the new owner could use it as a gym, home office or prep zone for a zombie apocalypse.
Unsurprisingly, agents Unique Estates say the flat is “unique”.
“We are pleased to offer this exceptional and unique two-bed apartment with its own garden and a large underground bunker,” they said.
The flat has a modern fitted kitchen with appliances, while both bedrooms are doubles.
But agents admit the key feature is the bunker, which they call “very spacious”.
“It has been fully refurbished as a usable space with its own ventilation system, heating and lighting,” they add.
“It’s possibly good for a home office, gym, music room or safe house.”
The flat can be found in a converted building which was once part of the New River Head – formerly the Metropolitan Water Board – in Rosebery Avenue.
The water board was a key bombing target during the Second World War.
The apartment itself lies within the site’s old laboratory, which was built in the 1930s.
Elsewhere, the building has a rose garden and concierge.
Neighbouring Finsbury Town Hall also has a bomb shelter, which was built – despite objections from the Ministry of Home Security – because of the building’s proximity to New River Head.
Other properties currently available in the capital also feature surprises for their new owners.
A studio apartment in Brixton is available to rent for £1,100 a month – and has a 25-metre swimming pool right outside the front door.
An ad for the home on Gumtree reveals the tenant will have “exclusive residents’-only access to an open-air swimming pool, which is beautifully lit in the evening”.
And a stunning £4million home yards from Notting Hill Gate Tube is completely invisible from the street.
The ‘hidden home’ can be found behind a secret door.
Once inside, the new owner find a whopping five-bed home spread over 3,000 square feet.
