Want to live like Harry Potter? Clapham ‘Privet Drive’ room under stairs advertised for £500 a month (plus bills)

A Clapham house share is offering renters a ‘Harry Potter’ experience by charging a whopping £500 per month (plus bills) to live in a cupboard under the stairs.

An angry would-be-renter took to Twitter to showcase the ‘Privet Drive’ experience which boasts a furnished room containing a mattress and a coat hook.

Alex Lomax tweeted: “I have literally just been shown a bed under the stairs for £500 a month. F you London!”

The advert reads: “We are looking for a friendly, open-minded and outgoing person to join our houseshare in a great period house in Clapham.

“We’re a good bunch and like to chill out a lot together – not really looking for somebody that just wants to stay in their room.

“Room comes with a bed. Bills to be shared – approx. £60 per month each.”

This comes just hours after Sadiq Khan told Labour conference that most Londoners were being ‘priced out’ of the city.
