|Flat for rent.... for £525 a month
|The filthy, dilapidated student digs in The Young Ones would hardly be described as a ‘des res’ – but now you could live in the house where it was filmed for £525 a month.
The house in the Bishopston district of Bristol has been converted into apartments since exterior scenes for the sitcom were shot in the Eighties – with a one-bedroom flat there now on the market.
Estate agent Mike Kendall, of Kendall Harper Lettings, said: ‘People are definitely intrigued when they find out its history.
‘We were offered once by the council a chance to put up a plaque to mark the spot but they wanted £400 from me to do it so we didn’t bother.’
External scenes featuring the house include this one, with Madness ‘playing’ Our House in the street as a riot erupts:
