It’s no holiday camp! Caravan parked in a North London garden advertised as a ‘self-contained garden studio flat’ will set you back £790-a-month
- The dated caravan is parked in a garden in Barnet, North London – and is on the rental market for £790pm
- The tiny living quarters come with a double bed, washing machine, overhead storage and a working kitchen
- Price does include all bills and Wifi – but the landlord is asking for nearly a £1,000 to secure it
London is known for its ruthless rental market, but this particular ‘property’ will come as particularly depressing news for those trying to secure a home in the capital.
A dated caravan, meant for touring holidays, that’s parked in a homeowner’s garden in Barnet, in North London, is currently being advertised to renters for a whopping £790 per month.
Described in the property advert as ‘a self-contained garden studio flat’, the caravan comes with a studio-style bedroom and kitchen, with a washing machine perched right next to the bed.
A tightly packed camper van parked in someone else’s garden in Barnet is currently available to rent for a whopping £790 per month
A small outdoor area comprising two chairs and a round table is available alongside the camper van. Owners added some décor by hanging a picture on their garden fence
The double bed is crammed in one end of the camper, with the washing machine lodged directly next to it.
Tightly packed next comes the kitchen – an oven with a hob on top, a small sink and a fridge.
Above the kitchen and bed is cupboard space – which is particularly handy given the lack of wardrobe or drawers.
Next to the entrance, there’s a chest of drawers and a portable heater, to keep you warm at night.
The tiny accommodation comes with a small kitchen with a hob, an oven and a sink, a washing machine and a separate toilet with a shower
At the other side of the caravan is a very compact bathroom, which contains a toilet, small shower, sink and storage cabinets.
Outside, between the garden fence and the entrance to the mobile home, there is a table and chairs for outdoor dining.
Howeowners can legally rent out a caravan on their property as long as they’ve secured planning permission.
The property, on Beechcroft Avenue, is advertised as ‘cute and available in the heart of Golders Green’ and ‘ideal for a single working professional’.
The garden where the camper is parked is located in a leafy part of Barnet in North London, only a few minutes away from the Tube
The camper has its own toilet and a shower and storage, which while small, is functional. It also comes with all bills and WiFi included
Despite being a caravan, the rental costs £790 per month – £266 more than the average UK rental price of £524 and equal to the London average of £794, according to rental website SpareRoom.
However, all bills and Wifi are included for the price. The caravan requires a deposit of £911.53 which, equivalent to five weeks’ rent, is the maximum legally permitted.
The minimum tenancy is a year – so you’ve got to be confident that caravan life is for you before signing the lease.
The camper van is not pet friendly and allows students.
At the far end of the camper, which includes overhead storage and a microwave, the owners have installed a double bed for the sleeping quarters
