One-bed London flat is £2,800-a-month and you'll need to be flexible to reach the bed


A ONE-bedroom London flat is being promoted for £2,800-a-month but you'll need to be very flexible to rent this property.

The flat, situated in the heart of fashionable Fitzrovia, will have you climbing the wall – literally – to reach the loft bed.

And for those hoping to move up the property ladder, this might not be quite what they had in mind.

Pics and a video of the rental property show a tall timber ladder reaching up to the loft space.

The property is being marketed by Foxtons as a "wonderfully presented one-bedroom flat with modern fittings and fixtures throughout".

Aside from the bedroom, there is a "spacious loft for additional sleeping space", adds Foxtons.

The agent says the Cleveland Street, Marylebone, rental is available at £2,817 pcm.

Featured on Rightmove as a short let, the quirky property is situated in "the heart of fashionable Fitzrovia", according to the advert.

And although there is a kitchen, it's conveniently located close to shops, cafes and bars surrounding Goodge Street and Tottenham Court Road stations.

Great Portland Street station is also a short stroll away.

According to HomeLet, the average rent in London for new tenancies is £1,572 a month.

But rents vary depending on loads of factors, such as a property's location and the number of bedrooms.

HomeLet also says that rents in London have dipped by 4.7 per cent compared to last year.

Rents outside London are rising at their fastest pace for four-and-a-half years boosted by strong tenant demand as lockdown eases and offices reopen, reports Zoopla.

The average cost of renting a home in the UK outside London rose by three per cent year-on-year in the first three months of 2021 to stand at £780 per month.

The high levels of demand from tenants, combined with a shortage of rental homes, meant the average property took just 16 days to let, according to Zoopla's latest rental market report.
