London flat on sale for £575,000 has gaps in the floating bedroom floor

If you’re a touch squeamish about heights, this might not be the property for you.

Sure, it’s got a great location, sitting on Hanson Street in Fitzrovia, London.

But the bedroom has a feature that’s destined to make some people pretty uneasy.

That feature? A floor with holes in it, so you can look right through it and into the living area below.

To access the bedroom, you need to climb up a spiral staircase to the floating mezzanine floor, made up of a metal panel with, well, a bunch of holes in it.

Some things to note about this. Firstly, if you aren’t great with heights, we wouldn’t recommend looking down as you ascend the stairs or sit on the bed.

Secondly, you’d better not be the clumsy type. If you drop an earring by your bed, it’s plummeting straight to the living space – you’ll have to go all the way back down the stairs to retrieve it.

We’d also recommend that whoever lives here expects a shoes-off policy. Anyone with a heel might get stuck in the bedroom floor.

If none of that bothers you, however, the flat is pretty decent… by London standards, at least.

On sale for £575,000, the property offers around 514 sq ft of space, with an open plan reception and dining room, a kitchen, and a bathroom (with a tub) on the lower level, along with a patio.

Upstairs is the holey-ground bedroom, floating above the living room.

There’s plenty of natural light, thanks to a skylight above the bed, and a good amount of storage space, provided by a shelved wall.

The listing reads: ‘This fabulous duplex studio apartment with private patio sits within a quiet side street in the heart of trendy Fitzrovia.

‘Over 500 sq ft of open plan living and entertaining space, comprising an entrance hallway with bathroom and overhead storage, leading to an impressive open-plan split level kitchen/sitting room with wooden flooring and access to a private patio area.

‘The spacious galleried bedroom area floats above the living room on an opaque mezzanine floor, allowing light to flood through the apartment thanks to a well-designed light well.

‘Hanson Street is located in the heart of Fitzrovia, which offers a great selection of local restaurants, cafes and bars with all the shopping of Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street on your doorstep as well as the amazing outdoor space of Regent’s Park and London Zoo.

‘Goodge Street, Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road stations are all within easy walking distance.’
