The flat where Joanna Yeates was murdered has been put on the market for £245,000 by murder suspect Christopher Jefferies, Joanna’s landlord.

Jefferies is rumoured to have put his first floor apartment in 44 Canynge Road, Clifton, on the market six weeks ago, after he was arrested for Joanna’s murder.

The apartment has been described on property websites as a “particularly large one bedroom apartment” in an “imposing detached Victorian property”.

The description continues: “The subject property is excellently located on a quiet residential road within easy walking distance of Clifton Village, which has a wide range of shops, boutiques and restaurants.

“Other benefits include a very spacious lounge (23’2” by 17’2”) and bedroom and the potential, subject to necessary consents to convert in to a two bedroom apartment.

“The property also benefits from a dedicated off streetcar parking space.”

The retired school teacher had furnished the flat well making it look very smart, with many books surrounding much of the walls in the living room.

Naturally the adverts make no reference to the disastrous happenings that saw the apartment on the front page of many newspapers.

Jefferies was arrested on Dec 30 and questioned for three days on suspicion of Miss Yeates’ murder before being released on bail.

Police confirmed on Monday 7 March that he had been released from his bail without charge.

Joanna’s killer, Dutch engineer Vincent Tabak, 32, has been charged with murder and will be facing trial in October.

After studying for a PhD in Eindhoven, Tabak moved to Britain after securing a job with Buro Happold, an Architectural firm in Bath.
