A listing for a tiny St. Louis apartment has gone viral because of its unique layout in which the kitchen and bathroom are the same place.
The 200-square-foot two-room apartment in St. Louis’ popular Central West End gained notoriety after an ad with a photo was posted showing a kitchen sink and a bathtub separated only by a toilet.
Harold Karabell of S.F. Shannon Real Estate Management said that the quaint apartment was rented out for $525-per-month and the new tenant loves it.
The design had many people wondering if it was actually legal.
Karabell told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that despite its unusual set up, the place is “a legitimate apartment” that’s “passed all city inspections.”
The 111-year-old building originally housed 12 luxury apartments. Karabell says that around the time of the Great Depression, it was remade into 50 small units, the studio the smallest among them.
