No need to sleep on the couch! Tiny flat in ‘heart of Notting Hill’ with bunk bed in living room is available to rent for £1,842-a-month
A tiny studio flat in the ‘heart of Notting Hill’ which is so small the bed is in the living room is available to rent for £1,842 a month.
The apartment on Tavistock Road in London may appear grand on the outside – but inside could be considered a tight squeeze for some.
The studio flat is not much more than a Victorian room with high ceilings and a bunk bed above a bright blue, old-fashioned sofa.
As well as shelling out £1,842 each month for a room, you will also be expected to pay a £700 deposit.

The rest of the furnishings are painted white and are also old-fashioned. There is also a tiny kitchen partitioned off which is described as ‘modern’. Studio flats in this area are generally priced around £1,200 per month, according to Foxtons, so this property is priced considerably higher.
According to the listing on Rightmove, it was reduced in price on September 11.
