Go Inside This Eccentric Gingerbread-Style House For Sale in Rhode Island
2022 continues to be a seller’s market as housing prices show no signs of declining, but if you’re in the market, why not go all out on a one-of-a-kind place that stands out among the rest?
A home in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, recently hit the market and it's far from average. It’s a gingerbread-style home, equipped with its own elevator and heart-shaped hot tub. Step outside of the traditional and check out this unconventional house in the village of Saunderstown.
Listed for $850,000, this gingerbread-style home was completely custom built. The home sits on almost 4 acres of land, with a large workshop, garage, and outbuilding. It’s an estate sale, so it will be sold as-is.
The seller, John Kidd of Blackstone Ocean Properties, spoke to Boston Globe and described the builder as an “eccentric genius.”
“I’ve been selling real estate for 22 years, and it’s probably one of the most interesting houses I’ve been in,” he said.
The unique home has three stories and just when you think you’ve seen the most interesting part of it, there’s more.
Let’s start with the fact that there is a spiral staircase. In a typical home, that would be the most eye-catching part, but the phone booth elevator that will take you to the third floor definitely trumps the staircase.
And let’s not forget to mention the heart-shaped hot tub. Unfortunately, it’s unfinished, but It’s most definitely a conversation starter.
From custom double doors to a cozy fireplace, this gingerbread-style home stands out.
Let’s take a look inside.
