NORTH POLE -- Santa Claus has been given an early Christmas gift.
Zillow estimates that his house in the North Pole is now worth $710,559, which is a 6.5 percent increase since last winter.
The 2,500 square foot house features three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
“A toy-lover’s paradise nestled on 25 idyllic acres,” Zillow explains. “The property includes Santa’s main living quarters, a community of elf tiny homes, a state-of-the-art toy-making facility, garage with space for an all-weather sleigh and stables that board eight live-in reindeer, plus a bonus stall for red-nosed company.”
The house was built in 1822.
“Find a floor-to-ceiling river rock fireplace for roasting chestnuts in the living room. The gourmet kitchen is a baker’s dream, boasting an oven with 12 different cookie settings. Cookies are served directly from oven to table in the adjoining dining room, along with cocoa on tap. Boughs of holly deck the hall leading to the master bedroom and two charming guest rooms. Tiptoe to Santa’s quiet study where an impressive writing desk is flanked by the same sewing table he used to make the original Teddy bear.”
