The world’s smallest apartment


This month saw what’s said to be ‘the world’s smallest apartment’ come onto the market. Once a former porter’s closet, the studio property measures just 5m2!

The compact apartment is up for sale for a whopping £43,000 in Rome’s Piazza di Sant’ Ignazio overlooking a stunning Renaissance church.  It consists of a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet and a small sleeping platform with just enough room for a single bed – no dinner parties there then!

Here at Rightmove we thought we’d have a look at some ‘cosy’ apartments a little closer to home.

Studio apartments are extremely popular in the UK’s busiest cities especially with young first time buyers who after struggling to get on the property ladder, choose to opt for convenient open plan living.

Hopefully these bijous properties will show that ‘small’ doesn’t have to mean impractical – after all, when you’ve got your food, clothes, bed and shower all in one place… you’ll never have to move again!

London – £239,950

Manchester – £119,950

Newcastle – £89,950

Bristol - £165,000
