The housing market is, to put it bluntly, a bleak hellscape.
And no, that’s not only the case in London.
Across the country you can find all manner of depressing properties up for sale, such as this studio flat in Glasgow, on the market for a reasonable-sounding £82,000.
We know what you’re thinking: £82,000! That’s not bad at all! The deposit would be under £10k!
But just wait until you take a look inside.
The flat seems decent at first glance. There’s a nice living space and a standard-sized bathroom.
Yes, the kitchen looks fine, too, but… wait a minute. What’s that in the corner?
That, sandwiched between a cabinet and the kitchen door, is your ‘bedroom’: A bed magically wedged into a crevice and hidden behind a curtain.
Who needs walls and a door when you can have the convenience of snoozing right by the fridge?
The property is being marketed as a ‘large style studio flat’ with an ‘enclosed internal sleeping area’. A nice way to say that the bed is in the kitchen, and your bedsheets may or may not soak up the scents of your more adventurous cooking.
The snoozing nook does have some storage above it, so that’s a bonus.
Plus, the agents note that the flat ‘offers scope to be further altered to create a double bedroom subject to the relevant planning and building warrant.’
That’s potential, we suppose.
The apartment is in Glasgow, Scotland and is being advertised by estate agent Slater Hogg and Howison, who say: ‘Larger style studio flat in an outstanding location.
‘The property offers a flexible layout and would be perfect for a first time buyer or young professional looking to live in a prime West End location.
‘The accommodation at present extends to reception hallway with storage cupboard, WC, formal bay windowed living room, dining sized kitchen incorporating an enclosed internal sleeping area with storage above, freshly installed bathroom.’
People online haven’t been as kind in their description of the home.
As one person put it: ‘Looks fine, looks fine, looks f- wait is that a bed in the kitchen?
‘£82k to sleep in a bed constantly humming of onions and garlic.’
