Just in time for the holidays, a New York City home nicknamed the “Gingerbread House” can be yours for a whopping $26,000 per month.

The home, located in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, is also for sale for $10.5 million. While the home has been on and off the market for a few years, it only came on the rental market recently.

The unique home dates back to 1917, when shipping merchant Howard Jones commissioned architect James Sarsfield Kennedy to build the 5,700-square-foot masterpiece. There have only been four owners to date.

Rare details can be found throughout the six-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home. Made of uncut stone and a rolled-edge roof, the home contains cast-iron doorknobs, stained-glass windows, beamed ceilings, and carved-wood moldings.

"It is an absolutely fantastic work of art mixed with architecture," Corcoran listing agent Vicki Negron said.

Called the "most magnificent residence in all of New York City" by the New York Daily News, the home sits on 20,000 square feet.

The current owners, who have owned the iconic home since the 1980s, told the New York Daily News last year that they are selling now because they're relocating.
