How Much Is Rent For A 'Harry Potter'-Like Cupboard Under The Stairs?

Expensive. Very, very expensive.

If eating Christmas dinner in Hogwarts' Great Hall doesn't satisfy your thirst for all things "Harry Potter"-related, here's an idea: move into a cupboard under the stairs á la The Boy Who Lived.

Such a thing exists IRL. Alex Lomax, 23, visited it while apartment hunting in London. The listing advertised the space as a furnished room going for £500 -- around $758 according to current conversion rates -- per month. Oof.

"We are looking for a friendly, open-minded and outgoing person to join our houseshare in a great period house in Clapham," reads the listing. "We’re a good bunch and like to chill out a lot together -- not really looking for somebody that just wants to stay in their room. Room comes with a bed. Bills to be shared -- approx. £60 per month each."

Lomax was understandably appalled at the very expensive, very small excuse for a "room."

"[The estate agent] said it was the 'last room left to rent' and that it was ideally placed for the kitchen (which [it] was right next to...!)," Lomax told Mashable. "I left as quickly as I could and said it wasn't right for me. Annoyed at myself to be honest as it's disgusting he thought that'd be OK."

Turns out apartment listings that sound ~magical~ really are too good to be true.
