Flat with a hidden kitchen goes on sale – but you need to be clever to find it


The incredibly spacious flat in a swanky London postcode left people reeling – with an incredible secret which was cleverly designed by the owner to preserve space

An incredible flat on the market left people reeling at its secret room – which can only be found if you’re a keen reader.

The home in Chelsea, which is on the market for a whopping £800 a week, is fully furnished – and even appears to include a grand library.

But keen readers desperate to check out some of the posh leather-bound books will have a shock if they reach for a book.

The bookcase is a decoy – sleekly designed to hide a kitchen behind it.

Estate agents Wilfords London described the incredible feature is described as “clever”.

They said: “This well presented one bedroom apartment is ideally situated close to Kings Road in Chelsea and offers stylish, fully furnished accommodation in a popular and secure portered block.

“The apartment consists of a large reception room with a sleek open plan kitchen, cleverly screened out of sight.

“There is a generous double bedroom with built-in storage and a modern bathroom.”

The rent may seem expensive for a one-bed flat – but it’s quite a bargain when you look at respective prices for the area.

The average asking price of a home in Manor Street is almost £3million, while rent is just under £5,000 on average.

Meanwhile, if you fancy living in the surroundings that inspired Peter Rabbit’s adventures, Beatrix Potter’s cottage is on the market.

When the much-loved author died, she left 4,000 acres of land and 14 farms to the National Trust – which was one of the largest legacies the charity has ever had.
