This Closet Apartment Costs $US68,000

While some people live in spectacular houses that grow from water, dream beaches, luxurious jungle bases and even awesome subterranean lairs, others have to buy a $US68,000 closet home, described as the world's smallest apartment.

The apartment is in a great place, however, in the Piazza di Sant' Ignazio. Ironically, right behind Palazzo Grazioli, a mansion rented by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

This "home", which can barely fit a bed, was built inside the old closet of an old porter's apartment. It has a ground floor bathroom - which includes shower and sink - and a platform with a bed. The owner says he has already received offers.

I'd rather live in the allegedly thinnest house in the world. Or any of these razor-thin ones. [Telegraph]
