A Gingerbread House in Brooklyn?

This fantasy gingerbread house in Brooklyn, New York is hardly what you’d expect to see in the ‘coolest’ borough of America’s biggest city.

Call me a striver, but when my mom read my fairy tales as a kid, my aspiration was to live in a castle, not a gingerbread house. Apparently not everyone shares this sentiment, because this gingerbread house in Brooklyn actually exists, and to be honest, it’s pretty charming.

The house is currently on the market listed at 10.999 million, or for rent at $26,000 per month. Originally built by architect James Sarsfield Kennedy the arts and crafts home was built in 1917 on a 20,000 square foot lot in trendy Brooklyn. The house itself is just under 6,000 square feet, and contains 6 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Some of the more charming features of the fairy tale house are uncut stone and a roll-edged roof, and in the past 100 years, the home has had only 4 owners.
