Great value’ bedsit costs £600 a month – but has no toilet and bed is fold-out

The bedsit is in Notting Hill, London has been called “great value” by the letting agent looking after it. It comes with a small kitchen and washing machine

A studio flat in one of the London’s most expensive areas is on the rental market for just £600-a-month, but it is missing a bathroom.

The bed needs to be folded away each day, to make room for the small kitchen complete with washing machine, but the apartment is missing a toilet.

The bedsit is in Notting Hill, London has been called “great value” by the letting agent looking after it.

And residents will have use of a shared bathroom consisting of a shower, basin and toilet, although it is nor clear how many people will be sharing the use of it.

The agents describe the property as “a great value bedsit situated in one on Notting Hill’s premier streets”.

It is a short walk away from both Notting Hill Gate Tube station and world-famous Portobello Road, best known for its street market.

And is close to Kensington Gardens and Holland Park, so could be snapped up quickly.

More than 12,000 properties sold for more than a million pound in the UK last year, with one reaching an impressive selling price of more than £44m.

Despite the country entering the first lockdown due to coronavirus last spring, it didn’t stop the flat at 1 Mulberry Square in the City of Westminster, selling for £44,278,490 on April 21.

It was closely followed by two other London homes which went for £36m and £35.5m in both March and January respectively.

Unsurprisingly all of the top ten properties were in the capital and they all brought in more than £20m for their sellers.

At the other end of the market three properties – a flat and two terraced houses – all sold for a bargain £15,000.

The flat in Washington, Sunderland, sold on October 13, the house in Burnley, Lancashire completed on March 27 and the house in Coundon, Bishop Auckland was sold on April 27.

According to the Land Registry, 552,125 home sales were registered across England and Wales have been registered for 2020.
