London property: Inside the £542-a-month London flat with a hidden shower behind the door

A flat in wealthy West London is on the market for just £500 a month – and you can almost shower from the bed.

The studio flat in Hammersmith is so small the front door cannot open fully as there is a shower hidden behind it.

The property has everything you could need just a small step away and an electric hob is placed next to where you would lay your head to rest – making it an ideal flat for anyone who likes to nap and cook at the same time.

Alongside the shower and oven, there is a single bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, small dining table and two chairs.

The efficiently-used space also has a built-in hob, stainless steel sink and a fridge freezer.

Although there is no toilet in the room, a shared toilet is available in the large Victorian house on Lena Gardens.

The room really makes use of all available space

An advert from the landlord for the property on Zoopla says the property is situated on a leafy street just a few minutes from Hammersmith and Goldhawk Road Tube stations.

It adds: “Shepherds Bush Tube station on the Central line and the Overground stations are about a 10-minute walk from the flat too.

“Many amenities include the trendy quaint cafés, bars, restaurants, deli’s and shops in Brook Green and Brackenbury Village.

“The major high street shops on King Street and a huge choice of high street and designer shops in Westfield, Shepherds Bush is within a 10-minute walk from the flat.

“Lots of open spaces including Ravenscourt Park, Brook Green, The River Thames, Chiswick House and lots more.”

Residents are having to make increasing sacrifices to live in some Hammersmith neighbourhoods.

Research from Benham and Reeves earlier this year house prices in the borough 15 per cent making property in the area £100,000 more expensive.

Since then Hammersmith and Fulham Council has committed to spending £32million to build more affordable homes.

The council has promised 394 new homes for local residents as part of plans to build 1,800 homes over the next 10 years.
