And it has confused people on the internet after TikTok user eli.korn posted a short video of him outside, showing off its bizarre architecture.

Since the video was posted on the site two days ago, it has received more than 316,000 likes, with users left scratching their heads.

Commenting on the short video, one person said: “That’s not a house, that’s a hallway.”

A second put: “This has deeply upset me.”

Well, in truth, it’s not quite as tiny as it appears at first glance and its actual title, the ‘pie house’, offers a more accurate idea of what it actually looks like. Yes, pie house.

This is because, while one side of the house is extremely thin, it gets gradually wider at the opposite end.

The property is currently on the market for $269,000 (£206,232), and according to the estate agent, it is something of a local celebrity.

The advert says: “You can now own Deerfield’s famous ‘Pie House’!

“This iconic home is larger than [it] appears, with over 1600 square feet of living space including the finished basement. Good natural light with lots of character. This one bedroom (plus one in the basement), two and [a] half bath home has plenty to offer! Open floor plan on main level with hardwood floors.”
