A FLAT is up for rent in North London for a whopping £910 per month – but the "bedroom" looks like something out of Harry Potter.
The ground floor studio flat is furnished with wooden floors, but one prospective tenant was horrified to spot its tiny bedroom.
It is essentially a divan squeezed into a cupboard with little room for anything else.
The six pictures of the studio showcased on Zoopla show a bright living room furnished with a sofa and a dining table, and a modernised kitchen and bathroom.
But tenants will have to snooze on a bed squashed inside what appears to have been a wardrobe space, with no room for a side table or a place to hang clothes.
There does appear to be a small shelf for storage inside the tiny space – and a light.
The bizarre set up is reminiscent of the cupboard under the stairs where wizard Harry Potter is forced to sleep by his cruel aunt and uncle, Vernon and Petunia Dursley.
But unlike J.K Rowling's fictional world, the closet bedroom is real.

A woman slammed it as a “ridiculously small apartment I found on Zoopla”.
She said: "This looks OK but apparently you sleep in the closet?"
The studio, plugged by estate agents Jayson Russell, is located in Sunningfields Road in Hendon.
The listing states: "A spacious ground floor studio flat with wooden floors, separate kitchen, and bathroom storage space, gas central heating, located in Sunny Gardens road – within walking distance to local shops and transport links."
It adds that tenants with cars "will be able to apply to Barnet for a parking permit charge will be based on the vehicles emissions".
Elsewhere, a tiny London flat has hit the market for a bargain price of £390 per month – but it's so small that the bed blocks the entire kitchen.
The Victorian property is located in Kensington, West London, one of the country’s most exclusive areas, but the fully furnished flat has barely enough room to walk around.
The listing brags how the Victorian pad is in a great location, boasting it is “fully furnished” and has trendy “wooden floors.”
But the one-person bedsit is so thin that the bed is almost touching the kitchen sink, and blocks the fridge from fully opening.
Because it is so small there isn’t even enough space for a bathroom with the shower and toilet shared with the other residents in the block.
The skinny pad shows the bed up against one wall, with the slim kitchenette just centimetres away.
The sink, microwave and camping-style cooking hob are all within touching distance from the single bed.
One Twitter user who stumbled on the property said: "Randomly browsing apartments on Zoopla for no reason and I came across this.
"London housing is such a joke.
"I've seen jail cells bigger than this [for real]."
