If you’ve always dreamed of living in a life-size gingerbread house, then you’re in luck! This gorgeous home, which looks like something straight out of Hansel and Gretel, is for sale.
The home is located in Tiskilwa, Illinois, a small town just three hours outside of Chicago. Less than one thousand people populate the town, which adds to the charm of this fairy-tale home.
I’m a city-dweller, but I might consider relocating to live in this one-of-a-kind house!
Let’s take a peak inside!
The house looks as beautiful in winter covered in snow as it does in summer surrounded by lush, green trees. The bright red paint stands out rain or shine, and the lace trim adds detail unmatched by other homes. Most homes also don’t have a wrap-around porch!
The Victorian neo-Gothic style transcends time and makes this place look like a giant doll house.
It reminds me of books I read as a child. I feel like I created this home in my dreams—and it exists in real life! If you can’t purchase the house, it might be worth a trip just to go see it.
The interior is decorated to match the distinct exterior. Deep blue paint contrasted with an ornate, white fireplace packs this home full of character.
There’s another fireplace in the dining room. The home also has four bedrooms total, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The kitchen is straight out of the past with older, but completely functional, appliances and a busy wallpaper pattern. The tall ceilings give the place a castle-like feeling.
Though a bit outdated, the house has unbelievable character. Just check out this gorgeous room!
Its dramatic interior makes for a unique home for whoever is lucky enough to purchase this gingerbread house!
It’s for sale for just $75,000. While anyone moving in might want to invest in a few upgrades, the price is an incredible deal.
If you’re not looking to move to rural Illinois, you can also incorporate some of this house’s charms into your current home. Who doesn’t want to live inside of a fairy tale?
