It's called 'The House' and it's located in a prestigious neighborhood in Tokyo called Minami-Azabu. What's astounding is that there's a one-bedroom apartment listed at 1.8 billion yen or $21.8 million USD. It's a 4,434 square foot home at an unbelievable $4,920.75 per square foot. For these insane prices, one would usually be looking at homes and mansions, not a one-bedroom apartment.

Most of the furniture is custom designed by Cecotti Collezioni and the walls, flooring and doors are all imported from Italy. 'The House' also comes with famous original Japanese artwork, which was painted on site.

All the rooms are enormous and there's even a Habachi-style kitchen where you can serve guests with a show. The terraces and courtyards are a private escape haven overlooking a park. For your clothes, there's a massive walk-in closet and a place to store 200 pairs of shoes.
