A Sydney rental studio in a ritzy eastern suburb has been savagely mocked online for its very modest size and shabby appearance.
A listing for the unit on Domain, which appears to have been taken down, said the granny flat in Rose Bay was “very private” and in a “prestige location with electricity and water charges included in the rent”.
The price appears to have been dropped from $280 per week to $230.
The property description says the home, which includes a deck, is close to shops and cafes, on a small block and has a “good size bathroom”.
However, Reddit users were quick to point out that the photos tell a different story.
“Remember in the 90s when a kid living under the stairs was a sign of a horrible situation. Welcome to Sydney in 2022!” the person who posted the link to the website said.
“The whole place looks like it's being held together by a bit of masking tape and some old nails. The actual audacity,” a user wrote.
Another reader accused the owners of "taking the piss" and said they would have to be paid to live there.
Some users pointed out the proximity of the neighbour’s pool and questioned if the studio was a converted pool house.
Others said whoever took the images of the studio was “really trying to work that wide angle lens”.
“I’m just amazed someone would actually advertise those photos and ask for money. Where's the sense of shame? Or even a half baked attempt to show something appealing?” a Reddit user wrote.
“I think they have more space in prison,” another added.
