Small flat in London

I thought Irish property prices were on the insane side of hyper-inflated. Then I read a story on the Guardian website about this flat in London.

An uninhabitable 11ft 3in x 7ft 3in former cleaner's cupboard in Chelsea, west London. The asking price? A mere £170,000 - plus around £30,000 to make it habitable.

You know, if you kept a dog in that space the ISPCA would send you to jail but these days we think it's OK to keep "household staff" or "commuters" there.

Given the morality of many Irish property developers I imagine that at this exact moment there are several in cupboards and wardrobes around Dublin with a copy of today's Guardian, a measuring tape, and an estate agent.
