Fairy tale for sale
In a town first settled in 1735 sits a dreamy mansion dubbed the Gingerbread House. This is not a fairy tale: The estate was recently put on the market for $1.99 million in Tyringham, Massachusetts. The property was previously home to sculptor Sir Henry Hudson Kitson and his wife. Equipped with its own creek and bridge, a pond filled with lilies and acres of land, it’s basically a dream come true. Photo courtesy of TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
Mansion with mini golf course
Fun is par for the course inside Thistle Dhu, a mansion in Pinehurst, North Carolina, built in 1919. Currently on the market for $2.95 million, the home features the nation’s very first miniature golf course. After your last putt has dropped, sneak downstairs for a drink: The basement contains a speakeasy that became a popular local spot in the 1920s.
