Studio flat with bedroom, kitchen and shower in one room for £737pcm, rented in half a day

The flat went off the market 15 hours after it was listed online

A studio flat in north London where the single bed appears to be less than a metre from the entrance, has been let half a day after it was listed online.

The new tenant of the property in Kember Street, near Kings Cross station in the capital, is believed to be paying 170 per week, or £737 per calendar month – below the £444 per week average in the N1 area, according to a property website.

Photos of the studio flat appear to show a small, white-walled room, furnished with a dining table and chair, a wardrobe, a hob and sink - all close to the occupant’s single bed.

Within hours of appear on RightMove.co.uk, the advert for the property had gone viral across social media, as people wondered who would its new tenant would be.

The flat may have attracted a student, as the University of the Arts London is a 15 minute walk from Kember Street, while UCL and other University of London campuses are also relatively close.

The Rightmove listing for the property boasts that it is a “fully furnished”, “modern studio apartment [which] comes complete and fully self-contained with its own en-suite bathroom and kitchenette,” referring to the double hob and sink next to the bed.

It goes on to describe the “neutral deco and laminated floor boards through out [sic]” as well as the “shared roof terrace” a prospective tenant would have access to.

Steven Boochoon, a spokesman from Relocate-me, one of the agencies offering the property to tenants, confirmed on Tuesday it had been rented by a competing firm.

He added that around twenty people had registered an interest in the flat that went on the market on Monday, and went live on Tuesday morning.

“We have had a fair few people who were keen, some were shocked that it was small. We’re still getting inquiries for viewings," he told The Independent.

Last month a similarly small property was on the market for £563 a month near Earls Court in West London, while a garden in the affluent borough of Kensington and Chelsea sold for £80,000 - over the average price of a home fewer than 300 miles away in the northern city of Durham.
