A FLAT so small the bed is suspended over a sofa in the kitchen has gone on the market for £140,000.

And bizarrely, there’s no ladder – meaning the agile new owner will need to clamber up the frame like Spiderman every time they’d like to sleep.

For those keen to look on the bright side, it’d be easy to grab a midnight snack – although perhaps more challenging to return to bed to eat it.

The studio flat in the heart of Bristol city centre went on sale for £160,000 in January, but the price was slashed in March.

Estate agents Connells put tongue firmly in cheek to describe the sale as a “truly unique opportunity”.

“The property is perfectly positioned amongst some of Bristol’s most celebrated restaurants, bars and local attractions,” they said.

“This property boasts a contemporary décor, with white, high-gloss kitchen units and quality integrated appliances, a well-proportioned and modern shower room, as well as an open plan and incredibly low-maintenance living space.

“A perfect starter property for a first-time buyer, a promising investment for buy-to-let purchasers, or an ideal home for professionals.”

The property sparked confusion on Twitter.

Lucyvharrison posted: “One-hundred-and-forty thousand Great British pounds to have your bed suspended above your sofa in your kitchen.

The flat was initially priced at £160,000 - but that's now been slashed to £140,000

“I didn’t think Bristol had reached London levels of madness but here we are.”

Tom Harrison asked: “How does one enter the bed?” to which Lucy replied: “I imagine one uses a pogo stick.”

It’s not the only property on the market with an unusual bedroom.

A London flat so tiny the new occupier will have to roll out of bed is available for rent.

The property in Hornsey Lane, Haringey, is criss-crossed with thick beams painted black.

And the strange architectural decisions allow just a tiny nook with a sloping ceiling as a bedroom.

Notting Hill in London is home to some of the country’s oddest lets.

One flat in the exclusive postcode went on the market for £1,500 a month – but the bed folds into the wall and the kitchen can be found stashed away in a cupboard.

Amazingly, agents described the property as “spacious”.

A second flat in the area was marketed for £800 a month – but is so tiny the occupier can cook and do the dishes from bed.

The dinky space has a single bed in the kitchen.
