But we were astonished to see this TINY Brixton room, or “breathtakingly expensive box” on sale for a steal at just £125,000 today.
The Morrish Road studio flat, marketed by estate agents KFH was spotted by @KatBrown82 and shared on Twitter.
Apparently already ‘under offer’, the 13 sq m space boasts its own doorway, a bathroom and ‘fitted kitchen’. It is, says KFH, “a rare opportunity to purchase this studio flat situated close the excellent transport links and amenities of Brixton.”
Luke Massey (Luke_Mas) said on Twitter: “Breathtakingly expensive box in #Brixton. Hurry guys – it’s ‘under offer’.”
Figures compiled by Nationwide last month showed house prices in Lambeth rocketed by 37 per cent between spring 2013 and spring 2014, and Brixton as been a central part of that upsurge. Other areas in Lambeth that have seen a big rise are Clapham and Vauxhall.
In May, London’s ‘skinniest house’ – at only 99 inches wide and with one sole bedroom – went on sale in nearby Denmark Hill for £450,000.
