A FLAT overlooking Harrods and Hyde Park is on the market for just £150,000 – but it’s missing two important features.

The 89 sq ft property is located in London’s Knightsbridge – one of the capital’s wealthiest areas where houses usually sell for a staggering £3.3 million.

Although the “blank canvas” property might be an absolute steal, the flat doesn’t have a toilet or a bedroom.

Laws were introduced 10 years ago to stop property developers from building new homes smaller than 400 sq ft.

But the eighth-floor flat was first leased in 1976, so it’s not technically breaking any laws with its lack of bathroom or minuscule size.

The tiny property is on the market with Knight Frank, and the estate agent confirmed that the flat complies with “all relevant regulations.”

A two-bedroom apartment in the same block – Princes Court – is on the market with Knight Frank for £1.3 million.

A spokesman told the Daily Telegraph: “The minimum space standards are only relevant to planning permissions in London for newbuild residential developments and converted properties constructed after 2011.

“The property at Princes Court on Brompton Road was originally leased in 1976 and has been used as residential accommodation before the minimum space standards coming into effect.”

Princes Court is a purpose-built residential block located directly opposite the capital’s prestigious Harrods department store.

The listing states: “The property comprises a self-contained apartment with a 165-year unexpired term.

“It is presented as a ‘blank canvas’ in shell condition so can easily be fitted out to the purchaser’s taste.”

According to the listing, the property has 24-hour security, a dedicated building manager, and “located away from traffic” on the eighth floor.

And the service charge for the zero-bedroom home even generously includes heating and hot water.

But politicians blasted the “outrageous” listing.

Thangam Debbonaire, Labour’s shadow housing secretary, said: “This outrageous advert is evidence of a broken housing market and shows why we need more truly affordable homes.”

For £150,000, a buyer could get a two-bedroom house with a garden in Portsmouth, Chorley, or Loughborough.
