This Home for Sale in Webster Groves Is Right Out of a Fairy Tale


Think true gingerbread houses are only the stuff of fairy tales? Think again. There's a house in Webster Groves that looks like it's straight out of a children's book -- and it's currently for sale.

For the first time in 40 years, the three-story Webster Groves home known as The Gingerbread House (205 Bristol Road) is on the market. Designed after acclaimed architect Edward Joy, the house was built in 1900 and consists of six bedrooms, three bathrooms, arched doorways, hardwood floors, two beautiful screened-in porches and more. Outdoorsy types will love how many rooms have Joy's "three-side exposure" design, with several windows facing trees, as well as the four perennial gardens outside.

The house is listed at $599,900. And while its status is currently listed as contingent (meaning someone is in negotiations to snap it up), nothing is final just yet, so get a glimpse while you still can. All photos and information are courtesy of Estately and Allen Brake Real Estate Team.
