Tiny London studio flat with bed suspended over the sofa goes on the market for £1,300 a month 

A studio flat with a bizarre bed layout featuring a suspended bed over the sofa is on the market for £1,300 a month.

The pokey London pad has a modern but small kitchen which boasts a microwave, fridge freezer and a tiny hob, but no oven.

Potential habitants will be able to relax and watch telly in the small lounge area underneath the king-sized bed.

Despite its size, the Finsbury Park flat had a tiled bathroom with a shower, bath, toilet, and sink.

As well as being furnished, with cutlery, pots, bowls, plates, and glasses chucked in, there is also free Wi-Fi. But the sleeping arrangements look quite peculiar.

The king-sized bed is accessed via block steps which have boxes in them to increase storage. But despite being attached to the wall, there is only one pole supporting it.

The bedsit is in Finsbury Park, North London, and it has been advertised on OpenRent.

There is no parking or garden and only one tenant is allowed.

The listing reads: ‘This is a perfect self-contained studio flat available for anyone who is looking for a clean, modern and well-located space.

‘If you are already in London and need a space for a short period of time or if you are coming to spend your holidays this is the space for you.

The pokey home, in Kensington, west London, has no room for a living area, sofa or even a television, and is kitted out with a tiny table with one chair underneath the sleeping area. 

The room does have a kitchen – but is so close to the bed frame that the cooker appears hard to access.

The ladder up to the bed only leaves just enough space for the fridge door to be opened.
