Tiny apartment overlooking Harrods not much bigger than full-size snooker table on the market for £400 per week. Just don’t invite friends round
Would you like to rent an apartment in the heart of Knightsbridge for just £400 per week?
You can, but beware that at 90sq fit, the property is not much bigger than a full-size snooker table.
Portuguese architect Caiano Morgado has spent two years transforming the interior of the tiny flat, which is on the 10th floor of a ported art deco building.
The space-saving guru’s design contains a kitchen, shower room and a living room that converts into a bedroom, while the penthouse view overlooks Harrods.
In 2010, it was reported that a property close to Harrods that measured just 11ft by 5.5ft had a value of £200,000.
In The Telegraph Online, it was said that the apartment was converted from a broom cupboard in 1987 and was originally bought by a secretary for £36,500.
Its two rooms, which measure 60.5sq ft, come with a toilet and a shower-cum-wardrobe.
One former owner bought the flat for £120,000 in 2006 to save him having to commute to and from Bath every day. At the time, Ray Barker told the Daily Mirror: “I can do the cleaning while lying in my sofa bed. In fact, I can wash up, answer the door, make a cuppa and go to the loo all at the same time.”
