Unconventional Studio Flat Offers at £1,195 Monthly Rent… But with a Twist – Kitchen Showers

A peculiar studio flat is up for rent at an astonishing £1,195 per month, and its tenants must get accustomed to an unusual arrangement – showering in the kitchen.

The compact dwelling, accommodating up to four occupants, boasts just a single double bed within the room. The kitchenette is equipped with a sink, two cupboards, and a fridge. While an oven and hob are conspicuously absent, the draining board is lined with toiletries.

However, the most peculiar aspect is the placement of the shower, devoid of a screen or curtain, right beside the kitchen. This layout offers no privacy for those showering from the prying eyes of other occupants. Notably, there is no sign or mention of a toilet.

A small table occupied by various items, and a lone chair next to the bed comprise the living space. A bin liner and a towel hang on a hook attached to the bed frame, and bags are strewn across the floor.

Located in the affluent area of West Kensington, West London, the property is managed by OpenRent. The listing designates it as having one bedroom and one bathroom.

The property description reads: “Introducing a room for rent in West Kensington. Situated on Castletown Road, the property features a bedroom and a shower. Available now, this property spans 137 sq ft on the first floor, furnished with large windows and high ceilings. Additional features include a fully-fitted kitchen with built-in storage. Company lets are allowed. The flat is suitable for students and falls under Council Tax Band G. Nestled on a tranquil street, the property is only a stone’s throw away from West Kensington Underground.”

One silver lining for potential tenants is the absence of a deposit requirement, and the property welcomes families, students, and pets. However, utility bills are not covered, and neither parking nor a garden is included.
