A Room (Without) A Loo

Flat in Onslow Gardens, South Kensington available to rent for the same cost as a week on the Joe Wicks diet through chi-chi estate agents Knight Frank; there is, of course, a catch

In 1928, Sir Noël Coward wrote and sang: “A room with a view, Who’s fooling who?” and estate agents Knight Frank could certainly be asked that of a “lovely” raised ground floor rental apartment they are currently marketing in Onslow Gardens, South Kensington.

 

Priced at just £210 per week ($261, €240 or درهم960 per week) or the equivalent of the cost of a week’s shopping for those following the ‘Joe Wicks Weight Loss Plan,’ the 151 square foot ‘studio’ has “wooden floors, large windows and good storage.” Also lauded is that “hot water is included in the rent” for the 12’1” by 12’6” space and that “there is also the benefit of a private kitchen.”

 

Sadly, however, the flat is lacking one detail most would desire: There is no private bathroom. Of such, the “painfully honest estate agent” Roy Brooks (died 1971) might have taken a different view. He would likely have suggested: “Of course, Chelsea has good public baths,” but rather than being just “a room with a view,” whoever takes this compact crib will instead just be getting “a bathroom with a queue.”

  1. Another estate agent pulling a fast one during COVID-19. Hasn’t got anything else to do, so starts renting cupboards out in houses. Mr Rutley will be turning in his grave.

  2. Knight Frank should be challenged for MISDESCRIPTIONS – This is a “ROOM” and most certainly not a “FLAT” as it does not have even a lavatory let alone a shower room or bathroom of its own.

  3. Shocking that they are promoting this at all. They must be desperate for business and the slumlord who owns it should be brought to book also.

  4. I checked this out here in Aus, and it is totally illegal. This is nothing more than a single room with no facilities, NOT A FLAT. The landlord and agents should be brought to task by the authorities.

  5. Does the window open ? Could just fling the chamber pot out . Just like the days before indoor plumbing.
