A STUDIO apartment in London has created waves with a very cool surprise.
The Brixton property, on the rental market for just £1,200 a month, includes its own outdoor swimming pool in the rear garden.
The apartment is listed as a “boutique studio” and is part of a gated complex of a beautiful Tudor-style house.
The stunning 25m swimming pool is complemented by an art deco fountain at one end.
The perfect benefit for cooling off during the ongoing heatwave, however potential residents will need to share as the pool is shared with the development.
There is also a common terrace where residents can entertain friends and soak up the sun.
Inside the apartment, a small hallway gives way to an open space.
Although the open-plan kitchen is not as large as some might like, it is equipped with a beautiful old-fashioned sink and ample storage space.
The living room/bedroom has a small four-poster bed and a good-sized desk on wooden floors.
The real gem of the interior, however, is the bathroom.
Designed in a 1930s style, the handsome WC is impressively large in size compared to the apartment and has an original roll-top bath.
The rear doors of the workshop open onto the flowered terrace adorned with a magnificent fountain.
The listing states that the property is best suited for young professionals and that one month’s rent is required as a security deposit.
However, the cost is easily offset by the inclusion of heating and water bills and of course the fabulous swimming pool in the garden.
