The storybook Gingerbread House of Bay Ridge

December 17, 2012

This is one house that needs no colored lights and decorations to give off a Christmas cottage-like feel.

It’s the Gingerbread House on quiet, residential Narrows Avenue in Bay Ridge, a 1916 Arts and Crafts beauty that looks like something cooked up in a holiday-themed kitchen . . . or taking its inspiration from a Grimm Brothers fairy tale.


Officially known as the Howard E. and Jessie Jones House (the names of the first owners), it was designated a landmark in 1988 and hit the market most recently in 2009. Price: 12 million.
