For the Holidays: A Gingerbread House IRL for $379K

  |  December 23, 2019

Feeling festive? Imagine this ornate and spacious Callicoon Victorian house bedecked in holiday cheer.

This week on Upstater, we’re celebrating the fanciest season of them all with IRL (in-real-life) gingerbread houses for sale the Hudson Valley and Catskills. Our first stop is in the western Sullivan County town of Callicoon, NY, where this former Victorian boarding house is located on 32 acres of land.

Nearly 5,000 square feet and nine bedrooms make up the interior, along with period details like wood trim, banisters, double doors, and wood floors…

…which join forces with an updated kitchen and dining room that bring on the natural light via walls of windows and skylights. You’re going to need all that space, light, and acres of counter space to cook for all those people staying in those nine bedrooms…

…as well as a big room in which to feed them all. During the warmer months, a gigantic wood patio provides an additional dining area.

If you’re worried about how your’re going to furnish nine bedrooms, matching first-floor parlors, a huge dining room, and four baths, fret no longer. The sale of this home includes all of the furniture.

And, in case 5,000 square feet isn’t quite sufficient to fill your space needs, make the old barn on the property an additional guest house. Or, convert it into your private residence and run the Victorian like an inn, just like the old days.

Meanwhile, stay with Upstater all this week as we celebrate the holiday season with gingerbread Victorians all week long!
