Confusing bedroom photo sneaks into the list

An ad for a two-bedroom apartment caught the eye, but not for the right reasons.

Listed by Dexters estate agents and for sale on Rightmove in the UK, the property’s listing in London’s posh Maida Vale suburb featured a puzzling photo of one of the bedrooms.

However, the officer was quick to remove the confusing image after a house hunter noticed someone “still sleeping in bed and posted the announcement photo on social media.

“I just browsed the properties for sale and… is there anyone still in this bed!?” the eagle-eyed Twitter user shared, alongside the now-deleted photo.

Agents of the flat, which is listed for £500,000 ($884,397), used a picture of what appeared to be someone dozing under the covers.

It’s unclear if there was anyone sleeping in the bed during the filming of the ad campaign, or if the doona covered mounds of clothing, but nonetheless, the photo was quickly deleted once it went viral.

The agent has kept the remaining photos of the property online, which include the kitchen, living room, second bedroom, bathroom and private rear garden.

The property is available as a lease, which means the buyer owns the property for a fixed period of time.

Interiors are dated with beige patterned wallpaper and retro tiling in the kitchen and bathroom.
