In recent months my wife and I have been offered, in the course of our despairing search to find somewhere to live in northwest London, a number of "garden" flats more suited to cave-dwellers, so little natural light did they have, but for which the proud owners would not accept less than half a million pounds. But most depressing of all, we have seen innumerable flats which developers have striven to render identical. They apparently believe that if you want to sell a tiny flat, the best thing you can do, apart from sprinkling downlighters across the ceilings and installing the latest oven in the kitchen, is to put in at least two extra bathrooms, or shower-rooms, or any other kind of plumbing you can think of. This absurd superfluity of washing facilities is then somehow meant to make up for the essential, ineradicable lack of much actual space in which to live.

Perhaps they do not mind that the proportions of the original rooms have been ruined by trying to cram in three bedrooms where there is only room for one. Or perhaps, when one sets out to buy a house or a flat, one should simply abandon, with a worldly laugh, whatever common sense one may possess, and should enter into the fantastic illusions propagated by estate agents to their clients.
