The World’s Smallest Apartment – Would You Buy It?

By Akemi Iwaya on October 13th, 2010

What used to be a porter’s closet has been converted into a very tiny apartment and is now for sale. The apartment is five square meters in size (53.8 square feet) and is listed for 50,000 Euros (69,806 U.S. Dollars).

Right now you might be asking yourself why anyone might pay so much for a former closet turned apartment. It is all about location. The “compact bedsit” apartment is located in one of Rome’s smartest districts right next to the ancient Pantheon. Even better, you could claim Italy’s billionaire Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi as one of your neighbours. What do you think? Is the location and choice of neighbors worth it?

Interested in compact living spaces? Then you will definitely want to see the video tour of this portable 100 foot square house.
