A London studio that looks like it easily rings in at less than 250 square feet might be the priciest micro-unit of them all.
The tiny apartment, called a bedsit across the pond, includes a sink, two stove burners, a twin bed, and a tiny wardrobe, along with a bistro table and a single chair. It’s unclear how a person might walk from one end of the apartment to the other without at least brushing every piece of furniture. What’s even more astonishing is the price: the unit hit the rental market for £737 pounds. At current exchange rates, that’s about $1,240 a month.
It was rented in 15 hours, according to The Telegraph.
The unit, which is in an in-demand area near King’s Cross Station, doesn’t have any of the usual bells and whistles micro-units proposed by developers usually have, like fancy Murphy beds, built-in storage or any mini appliances. Compare it, for example, to the micro-unit concept planned for the Wharf development:
The London studio does, however, have an attached bathroom not seen in the photos.
