This thing is way over twice the size of my home (using my rule of thumb of 10 to 1 the apartment is about 225 square meters.) And with two living rooms! I think someone after Hayward bought two flats and connected them. Or did Hayward inherit wealth? I find it hard to believe that he could have earned enough for a place like that (even by taking in a boarder.)
Explored some more.
Pictures and floor plans of the flat are here:

From the configuration shown Hayward was in the west half of the central arm of Carlyle Mansions and it looks as if I was mistaken in thinking that the current flat was once two. That doesn't stop me from speculating on some other improvements that might have happened though. As you enter there is a door on the left. I say this is new and that the area behind it was once connected to the kitchen and was used as a pantry. I could be wrong as guests would have needed some place to put their coats but maybe that is what is the utility room now. Eliot's bedroom must have been the small one labelled as bedroom 3 (with it's window facing the apartments to the west.) I suspect that bedroom 2 was not divided as now and used by Hayward as his library.
