‘Peep Show’ fans, you can now buy this flat in Mark and Jez’s building

It’s one of the greatest sitcoms in history and you spend your life quoting lines from it; so why not give it that extra layer of realism and do it in a flat in the actual building where Peep Show was filmed?

Yes, that’s right, there’s a flat for sale in the same block as Mark and Jez, and you want to buy it don’t you. Who knows, you might even bump into them in the lift? Just be careful for any escaped snakes that might be on the loose.

For the price of ‘just’ £100,000-125,000, you could be the proud owner of a flat in Croydon’s Zodiac Court, on London Road, and live out your Peep Show roleplaying for real. It’s currently on the market at Rightmove here, and comes with a 73-year lease, central heating and a mere £200 PCM service charge. The state of the bathroom door is unknown although it does admit that it is ‘in need of modernisation’.

West Croydon train and tram station is just a quarter of a mile from the property, while you’re blessed with local shopping centres Croydon Whitgift and Croydon Centrale, perfect for picking up the big shop on a Friday night.

Mark and Jez’s ‘actual’ place, Flat 5, was briefly on the market in 2013, available to rent for £800 PCM, which seems pretty reasonable actually.

This flat has just the one bedroom, so unless your hombre sleeps in the main studio room (or on the balcony), you’ll have to view this as a solo venture for now.

Enough talking: let’s take a look at the gaff.
