Forget This House--It's NOT For Sale After All (Update)

Thursday, 10 Apr 2008 | 2:25 PM ET

Update: Oops..seems this isn't real after all. The email that got sent around has been exposed as a fraud according to an article in the New York Daily News. This house is in Toronto and NOT for sale. The deception was discovered after dozens of people went to the Brooklyn location--only to find the house wasn't there.

Anyway, here was my original post today:

I want to thank a viewer/reader for sending this in. Just when you thought there were no more ridiculously priced homes anymore, here's something to show everyone out there that the New York housing market--Brooklyn to be exact--is still alive and well. And completely out of whack.

Look at what you get for just $179,900.00:

Brooklyn's smallest house is a one bedroom, one bathroom home that sits on a parcel of land 7.25 feet (2.2 meters) wide and 113.67 feet (34.6 meters) long and has an interior area of just under 300 square feet. 
Here's the living room, looking towards the front of the house.



Here's the living room again, looking towards the back...



Here's the kitchen. Note that despite the small space they've managed to fit a washer and dryer into the place.



Here's the bedroom. It comes with a Murphy bed, which is a necessity in such a space. This is what it looks like with the Murphy Bed down.



And here the bedroom with the Murphy Bed retracted.


You also get some patio space out back.  Here it is, looking towards the front of he house.



And here's the patio looking towards the back.



This house, located near the intersection of Ave T and Van Sicklen is believed to be Brooklyn 's smallest house. Occupying what used to be a driveway, it's a one bedroom, one bathroom home that sits on a parcel of land 7.25 feet (2.2 meters) wide and 113.67 feet (34.6 meters) long and has an interior area of just under 300 square feet.

Here are the home's 'Listed Features':
