A studio flat in Kentish Town was originally just one room in a terraced house. It's now on the market as a home to rent - measuring just 8 feet by 9 feet, plus a bathroom big enough for a toilet and a sink. To squeeze a bed in, the owners have built a mezzanine platform, so in order to go to bed the resident would have to climb on a fridge and then scale a ladder. Once up there they would have just two feet of head-space.

This tiny room is up for rent for £780 a month, and there has been no shortage of interest. The agents told the Observer newspaper that it was the smallest they had ever let, but that they had already had more than 50 enquiries about it.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
