The more I see of this place the more I like it. Definitely not a traditional family apartment but for a single person or a couple this is pretty awesome. Imagine sleeping with the window open on summer nights.

I'm sure in Elf n Sayfty obsessed UK those Stairs of Doom aren't legal. This place is all very well for the owner who obviously likes it that way but just wait until they try to sell it.
Most Aussie homes have a separate laundry aka mud room (?) aka utility room where the washer, dryer and other domestic equipment is kept. In older places there's often a WC in there too. Makes sense as there's already plumbing/drains there. It makes sense but it does feel a bit weird at first. Another weird Aussie thing is how few people have locks on the WC door. It can make for some anxious moments.

Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
No way! I'd hate sitting underneath the suspended bed and I can fall out of our bed even when we're not having sex so that's a no-no for me. Plus, as others have pointed out, where am I going to stash my bedtime books and phone? The bath in the kitchen also wouldn't work for us. I don't want to be trying to make a sandwich while the OH is there having one of his hour long soaks with the latest Private Eye and making his own jacuzzi effects.

And I had a studio flat in Oakland once, in a converted tile factory. Amazing, versatile space. Someone had built a sleeping loft because the ceiling was so high. The railing wasn't that high...
Thing is though, the loft was bigger and placed against a wall, so there was room on each side for a lamp, books, etc. And you didn't have to be sleeping right near the edge. Best of all, you didn't have to negotiate a Staircase of Doom in the middle of the night. Instead there was a sturdy, inclined ladder with wide, flat rungs. MUCH better, you hold on with your hands and don't have to worry about losing your balance.
I would like this place a lot better if their sleeping loft incorporated that kind of common sense.
