A fire-damaged studio flat with one of the dirtiest toilets in Britain that even estate agents branded ‘run down and in disrepair’ has gone on sale for almost £250,000.

The grim pad, in central London, is just 236 sq ft, about the same size as an average garage. But there is a glimmer of hope for buyers as other apartments in the block are going for up to £325,000.

Pictures of other units next door show gleaming white walls, light-filled living rooms and even compact but stylish kitchens.

The flat is being marketed on Rightmove by central London agents Frank Harris & Co, but even they admit it is in dire need of an upgrade.

Pictures show what appears to be smoke damage with every room appearing blackened and charred. In the main studio room, parts of the roof are peeling off while wallpaper has crumbled from the far wall.

And in the bathroom, soot clings to the walls while the toilet is covered in mess and debris. Bizarrely there appears to be a fresh, white and unscathed toilet roll sitting on the blackened sink.

The flat is in Russell Court on Woburn Place in Bloomsbury, which lies in the pricey borough of Camden. It is billed as being a stone’s throw from Russell Square Station but only has a studio room, bathroom, hallway and storage.

‘Viewings are highly recommended on this studio. Russell Court is a stone’s throw away from Russell Square station.’

It added its plus points were being in a secure block, a share of the freehold, concierge, close to amenities and added: ‘Lots of potential.’

A floorplan of the flat that was posted on the Rightmove website reveals the tiny measurements of the flat - being just 21.9 sq m in total

Other tiny flats have recently sold for staggering prices, with a small one in Notting Hill on offer for £150,000 despite being just 79sq ft.

And another in Bayswater is priced at £250,000, despite buyers having to squeeze past a fridge in the hallway to get to the loo.

The new flat on the market has only sold once before – for £59,000 in 1999.
