A studio flat which features a "built-in bed" resting over a staircase has been taken off the market after criticism from house-hunters who pointed out that you could "roll over and die".

The property in Worthing, West Sussex, which had been up for sale for £125k, boasts a double bed unusually elevated over a bannister.

This bizarre makeshift layout left people scratching their heads with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Shortly afterwards, it was taken off the market.

One critic said: "How is that bed legal, you roll over and you DIE."

Another mimicked the letting agent, saying: "Don’t worry you won’t die if you roll over at night because we’ve nailed a shelf to the ceiling to stop you that’ll be a hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds please."

One added: "For only £125,000 you can risk falling to your death while you sleep! You're not gonna get a better deal than this!"

Replying to @unfortunatalie who pointed out the listing, one woman said: "Oh my days.

"I'm saving this tweet for whenever I start worrying that I may have overpaid for my not that big flat, also in Worthing, which features such mod cons as a bed that isn't hovering over a staircase."

Another said: "But… but… there's a perfectly adequate floor with enough space for the bed??? It doesn't need to be suspended over anything, let alone stairs??? what the HELL were they on when they thought up this DIY nightmare?"

Located in Worthing in West Sussex, this home was described by agents Symonds as "a spacious and well converted top floor studio flat" and comprises of a kitchen area, a bathroom, and a studio area, The Sun reports.
