You may have imagined Mr. and Mrs. Claus living it up in a North Pole palace. But it turns out that his digs are much more modest. According to Zillow, he’s asking just $656,957 for his famed home. Maybe he is looking to upgrade?

“A toy-lover’s paradise nestled on 25 idyllic acres at the North Pole – perfect for spirited reindeer games,” the Zillow listing reads. “The home, constructed in the 1800s of gorgeous old-growth timber logged on site, is steeped in Old World charm but offers modern-day amenities, thanks to a 2013 renovation.”

Unsurprisingly, Ole St. Nick’s spread is loaded with amenities, including a floor-to-ceiling river rock fireplace (for roasting chestnuts), a gourmet kitchen “boasting an oven 12 different cookie settings,” boughs of holly deck the hall, a master bedroom and a queen suite.

And that’s not to mention the onsite workshop, reindeer stables and coal mine.

Better move fast on this hot piece of property. Naughty boys and girls need not apply. [Zillow]Christopher Cameron
