While giving no reason for why the big guy is selling and no specific address other than the “North Pole”, the sale listing on real estate site Zillow gives us a rare glimpse of Santa’s digs.
The three bedroom cottage style house is described in the listing as “a toy lover’s paradise…perfect for spirited reindeer games” and sits on a 25 acre lot.
Although constructed in the 1800’s, the cosy single family house offers a mix of old and new, thanks to a renovation in 2013.
It offers many of the festive features you would expect from Santa’s house including a floor to ceiling fireplace for roasting chestnuts, a specialty oven with twelve different cookie settings and sprawling snow covered mountain views from the master bedroom.
The ad also gives us a peek into Santa’s study which is complete with a comfy leather chair, a large writing desk where he no doubt reads his millions of letters each year, a bookshelf to store toy prototypes and a wall world map to plan out his Christmas Eve route.
By the river and through the woods you will find Santa’s “state of the art toy making facility with workstations for 50 diminutive craftsmen”, a garage large enough for a sleigh as well as a stable housing nine reindeer.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to put this one on your Christmas wish list. You’ll need to fork out $656,957 (USD) for Santa’s house, which is actually not too bad considering this property is surely one of a kind.
Despite being in one of the world’s most isolated locations, this delightful home would be ideal for those looking for some Christmas cheer all year round. It features lots of wooden detail, holly lined hallways, crackling fireplaces, wreaths in every bedroom and traditional red soft furnishings throughout.
There have been no reports on whether Santa and Mrs Clause have found a new home to move into.
