The market here was often mentioned by Steptoe & Son, whose fictional scrapyard home was nearby. But this split-level, converted apartment is anything but junk. You get a private garden, two double bedrooms and a single one. There is also a modern kitchen and a lounge with a beautiful fireplace. There’s bags of storage and you are close to one of London’s best public transport hubs.
