Luxury London home up for rent except there's one thing very, very wrong with it

Finding a nice, affordable and locationally ideal house in London is nigh-on impossible. You have to sacrifice at least 2 of the 3, leaving you with a small hovel that costs more than your parents' mortgage in rent a month.

So when a landlord markets a 'luxury' house for around £8,000 a week, there's got to be a catch, right? 'Luxury' never really means luxury, it usually means 'habitable' or 'unique.' And boy, is this house unique. 'Why?' I hear you ask. Well, take a look for yourself:

Yep, quirky because it's covered in murals of infamous WORLD DICTATORS. Want to watch TV? Mao and Lenin are there to keep you company. Fancy a shower? Saddam Hussein will join you:

There's also a life-sized waxwork of Pope John Paul II under the stairs, because God is always watching:

The property is situated in the notoriously wealthy Knightsbridge, belonging to film director Roland Emmerich of Godzilla and Independence Day fame.

Daniel Bickerdike, the letting agent at Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward said the following about the property's unique and somewhat compelling features

“The opportunity to live in such a unique home doesn’t come around very often. From the murals and ornaments inspired by figures from world history to Pope Jean Paul II sitting in the under-stairs cupboard, residents will be equally challenged, fascinated and entertained by the décor throughout this property.”

Yes... quite.

Prospective renters can get their hands on this property for a bargain of £34,667 a month... a price the stars of the murals would ironically not be too pleased with.
