The Sydney rental market can be a brutally competitive beast that sees renters scrambling to put their application in the second – if not before – a new home hits the internet.
But one particular ad for a flat in the exclusive suburb of Elizabeth Bay has some renters thinking twice.
In an ad that was posted to rent.com.au, the one bedroom, one bathroom flat looks like any other apartment being advertised.
With big floor-to-ceiling windows letting in plenty of light in the living room and bedroom, along with beautiful polished floorboards, it’s sure to tick a lot of boxes for home-seekers out there.
But it’s the photo of the kitchen that’s had some people doing a double take.
Take a closer look.
Can’t see it?
Have a look at the fridge.
Like many other flats in space-challenged Sydney, there’s been a bit of juggling to ensure all your essential white-goods make it in.
Which means the fridge sits on top of the dryer, making it near impossible for even those with Go-Go Gadget arms to reach the top shelf of the fridge, let alone sneak in a spoon or two of ice-cream just before bed.
Hands up (way, way up in the air) if you’d be happy living here?
