There are the usual expensive London rentals, then there’s this.

A minuscule flat with a so-called bedroom up a ladder, which is charging rent that’s been labelled “extortionate”.

It’s never going to be cheap living in Fulham, but this property seems to be taking it to a whole new extreme, reports

For £800 a month, you could get to live in an attic, with a ‘bedroom’ area that can only be accessed by ladder.

Although, a lot is packed into the tight space.

There are kitchen appliances, a washing machine, a chest of drawers, and a bed on top a wooden structure.

There’s also an exposed brick wall and a window.

The bathroom and shower can be found in a different part of the building and is shared with other residents.

A posting on Gumtree states: "Self-contained small size second floor studio flat to let in the trendy and popular area of Fulham south-west London.

“Flat has its own kitchen area with a mini hob cooker, fridge and sink, communal washing machine for building, separate shower room with toilet for flat as well!

“Wooden floors, good value and great location, access to Fulham Broadway tube.

“Rent includes all bills except electricity. Single wanted only with good references a must. One year let minimum.”

The property is also listed on Prime Location, but only with an image of the shower. It appears the listing on Zoopla has been removed.

Housing campaign group Acorn has criticised the letting.

A spokesperson for the group said: “This is simply not a suitable place for someone to live in and call a home, and the landlord should feel ashamed not only for letting it out in the first place but for charging such an extortionate rent.

“As long as our housing system is built on the pursuit of profit, this kind of thing will continue to happen as greedy landlords try to line their pockets by letting out properties that are unsuitable for habitation.

“It’s time we built a housing system that puts people before profit – leaving it to the whims of the market has completely failed.”
