Speaking of awesome gingerbread houses, please meet The Gingerbread House, a James Sarsfield Kennedy-designed six-bedroom home in the far reaches of Brooklyn. Built in 1916 and listed for $12M, the property embodies typical Arts & Crafts architecture and features rolled-edge roofs and antique leaded windows. As Curbed NY noted then the listing hit the market in 2009, what lies behind all that stone is pretty much under lock and key, generating folklore about basement bowling alleys and revolving garage doors. A modern twist on the centuries-old Hansel and Gretel fairytale, for sure.
