And get this: Not mentioned on the BBC link above, but on another report the agent is quoted as saying "Considering the location, it's really not that expensive." [Linked Image]

I don't care if it is opposite Harrods, convenient for Sloane Street, or standing in the grounds of Buckingham Palace for that matter. It's still just an old janitor's closet.

Advert should read "closet for free, stupid tax of 170000 pounds".

It's insane the lengths that yuppies go to.

100 years ago, this kind of room would have been the refuge of a working stiff like myself.

Probably paying $10 a week in 1900s money, which would probably equal to $100 a week in today's dollars.

England must operate on some pretty backwards building codes leftover from the 19th century. How does a 10x17' space classify as large enough to be habitable space or a dwelling? A flat for the elephant man...
