People Are Baffled By This ‘One Of A Kind’ £1.2m London Flat With Private Pool – LADbible
A luxury two-bed flat with private pool in London may sound like a dream come true, but it turns out not all is what it seems with this £1.2 million pad.
The property was listed on Zoopla as a ‘one of a kind’ luxury apartment with two bedrooms, but photos soon reveal the catch – that pool of yours? Well, it’s just literally right there in the middle of the flat.

Located on Hornsey Road, Upper Holloway, along with two double bedrooms there are also two bathrooms and two reception rooms. There’s even a sauna, too.
You’ve also got a choice of two Tube stops within a mile of the property, meaning you’ll be able to get around London without any trouble… Not that you’d ever want to leave home, of course, with a swimming pool in your living room.
The best twist, however, is that the home was originally listed for £1m, but an extra £200,000 was added after photos began circulating online. Savvy.

The online listing reads: “One of a kind! Luxury two double bedroom flat with private swimming pool!
“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!

“Both Archway Tube N19 and Finsbury Park Tube N4 are located under a mile walk from the flat, and both offer a plethora of travel options and local amenities.”
That’s right, the pool is part of a mega basement suite, which also features a living area, kitchenette and loo, so you won’t have to even head upstairs for a snack or a wee. Welcome to the future, eh?

While it all sounds like a surreal dream, not everyone seems convinced.
Quoting the listing, someone posted on Twitter: “A two-bed flat in Holloway with a SWIMMING POOL is indeed ‘one of a kind’! What the f***.”
Sharing a photo of the living room, they added: “None of it makes any sense! There’s also an sitting room above with chairs arranged round a window that looks down on the pool.”

Another user joked: “The sofas watching the pool feels very ‘sex party but we are old and need to sit down for a bit’.”
Meanwhile a fourth person simply added: “This is BONKERS.”
There was even someone who claimed to have even visited this mythical property before it boasted access to the pool, admitting they decided against buying.
“I HAVE BEEN IN THIS FLAT,” they wrote.
“I went to view it to possibly rent it. There was no access to the downstairs so it just had a window onto someone else’s pool which, at the time, was drained and had an armchair in it. It was f***ing bizarre. We did not rent it.”
