  • One bedroom flat sells for £306,000, but the bathroom is pretty bog standard

    This ground floor, one bedroom flat in Stoke Newington has recently sold at auction for £306,000.

    For a seemingly simple – and tiny! – flat in North London it sure is getting a lot of attention – especially its bathroom…

    The auctioneer, Auction House London, list the property as ‘A Vacant Lower Ground Floor One Bedroom Flat’ with reception room and open plan kitchen, bedroom, bathroom with WC and washbasin.

    Now this all seems a pretty penny for just three rooms, but especially so considering the strange shape of the bathroom. An obscure, stretched triangle shape houses a shoddy bathtub, small basin and more interestingly, a staircase.

    Talk about a stairway to heaven, the toilet can be reached via seven treacherous steps that will leave you in the rafters! But fear not, there is a handrail to aid you on your quest to reach the throne.

    Sold at £306,000, £31,000 above the asking price of £275,000, the new homeowners seem to have really fallen in love with the petite property.

    But as London house prices rise and the average flat now set you back
    £499,997, house investors are frantically searching for desirable properties under £500,000 in fashionable neighbourhoods.

    In that case, what a bog standard bargain!
