Average two-bed London flat hides incredible secret in basement

THIS average-looking two-bedroom flat in London hides an incredible secret in the basement.

Beneath the bog-standard living room and down a spiral staircase there is a big private swimming pool.


The "one of a kind" property in Holloway, north London, has an open plan living area, two double bedrooms and a walk-in wardrobe.

There is also a modern bathroom and small outdoor patio area – and a giant indoor pool.

Astonishingly, the basement also boasts a sauna, further shower, seating area with folding glass doors, a kitchenette and a toilet.

To make the place even more unique, part of the living room floor is glass meaning a clear view of the pool below.

And the "immaculate" flat is on the market for £1.2million.

It was originally listed for £1m but the savvy estate agents upped the price by 20 per cent after photos began circulating online.



The listing, by Northview estate agents, reads: "The basement of the split level apartment comprises luxury private swimming pool, sauna, shower, seating area with folding glass doors, kitchenette, and w/c.

"After climbing the spiral staircase you arrive at a good sized open plan reception room with kitchen, two double bedrooms, walk in wardrobe, bathroom with shower overhead, and small patio.

"The property is immaculate throughout and truly is, one of a kind!"

The flat is within walking distance of two tube stations and "a plethora of travel options and local amenities".

It even sits next to a Chinese takeaway – so it couldn't get much closer.



It certainly caught the attention of people on Twitter who couldn't believe eyes.

She added: "None of it makes any sense! There’s also a sitting room above with chairs arranged round a window that looks down on the pool."

Julia said: "Like living in a tiny leisure centre. Fascinating."


Another user commented: "I didn't know this existed outside a game of The Sims."

Polly added: "This looks very much like my kids built it on Minecraft."

And Twitter users speculated the unique flat is the one used by American businesswoman and model Caprice on Celebrity Come Dine With Me.
