One of the first landmarked properties in Bay Ridge, nearly 100 years old Gingerbread House is on sale for $10.999 million.
A stone mansion set upon a nearly 6,000 square feet in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, Gingerbread House is an iconic Arts & Crafts-style home designed by 1910 by the late renowned architect James Sarsfield for shipping mogul Howard Jones.
The 5,764 square feet of interior space includes a total of 14 rooms, 6 bedrooms and 5+ bathrooms.
On the first floor you’ll find great room, dining room with fireplace and music conservatory all with cherry and mahogany flooring and hand-sculpted wood reliefs. The music conservatory hosts the great stone hearth, the essential core of the architectural style, accented by carved stone columns and sculpted stone reliefs.
A 20,000 square foot lot spans a city block, and includes a quarter acre parade ground green space. Pocket gardens surround the property.
The terra cotta tiled kitchen with separate staff service area, leads to an outdoor dining patio that connects to terraced patios. A ground floor patio, surrounded by a stone wall with water feature and a stone archway connects to the three car garage.
The property has had only four owners in 100 years. The Gingerbread House is a precious gem, befitting an owner who values the well being and personal energy that flows from a residence of such history and design caliber. Keller Williams NYC has the listing.
