A studio flat that is so tiny the bed is on a shelf on top of a cupboard in the living room has gone on the market for £385,000.

The one-bed apartment, in a five-storey block in upmarket Belgravia, west London, is up for sale for nearly £100,000 more than the average price of a home in the country.

Yet the property is just 27 sq m (291 sq ft) in size, making it less than a third of the size of the six yard box on a football pitch, which measures 98 sq m (1,054 sq ft).

But to save space in the lounge the double bed is on a raised platform with storage underneath beside a bookcase.

The flat is £93,000 more than the average price of a home in the UK, which stands at £292,000, according to the Office for National Statistics, marking a 15.5 per cent rise of £39,000 compared to the previous year.

The property is on the market with Foxtons and advertised on Rightmove.

The key features are listed as: ‘Bright studio room, separate kitchen, within easy reach of Sloane Square, communal courtyard garden.’

The property description makes no reference to the unusual sleeping arrangements.

It reads: ‘Situated within easy reach of the shops of Sloane Square, this upper ground floor studio flat offers bright accommodation with a separate kitchen and communal courtyard.

‘It is enviably located within walking distance of the fashionable shops and boutiques available around Sloane Square.

‘While Victoria train station is within easy reach, offering great transport links.’

The studio flat is so small only two of the five property photos show what the inside looks like.

Two are of the communal garden and one of the outside of the building block.
