With less than a week until Christmas, you may be busy, but there’s definitely someone who’s to-do list is longer than yours: Santa Claus. This is crunch time for Old Saint Nick and the elves, who are hard at work so they can spread Christmas cheer to kids all around the world. We know a lot about what Santa and his crew do, but have you ever wondered about where they live? Thanks to Zillow, we now have some insight.
The online real estate marketplace has updated its fictional price estimate for Santa and Mrs. Claus’ North Pole home and like houses all over, it’s definitely increased in value. Zillow’s listing shows the house is off the market right now, but it tells us all about the “winter lover’s paradise” located on 25 acres:
- Santa and Mrs. Claus’ main living quarters was constructed in the 1800s and is “steeped in Old World charm,” but thanks to a recent renovation, it comes with many modern-day amenities.
- The new gourmet kitchen features an unique oven that has 12 different cookie settings
- The dining room even has a device that serves hot chocolate on tap
- In Santa’s study, you can find the same sewing table where he reportedly made the very first Teddy bear
- In addition to the house, there’s a state-of-the art toy-making workshop and a garage for the all-weather sleigh
- There are also stables for the reindeer, with a special stall for Rudolph
- Since Santa doesn’t make the toys alone, the elves have their own private cottages known as Elf Village.
- After long days at work, the elves can relax and unwind in their meditation space and yoga studio that boasts “perfect feng shui.”
With amenities like those, you know this sprawling estate isn’t going to be cheap. Back in 2012, Santa’s North Pole property was estimated to be worth $341-thousand and the latest estimate from Zillow is just a bit more at $1-million 31-thousand.
