Pine Drive, Santa Claus, Indiana

Anyone up for a brisk walk around Christmas Lake along Pine Drive?  We can stop and admire this "famous gingerbread house," as the listing says.  This 1978 charmer could be nowhere else but in Santa Claus, Indiana.

Well, we've got the lake and a pretty pine tree, but our walkway between the house and the garage needs some Christmas cheer:

Once inside, it's easy to see how the gingerbread house got its name:

What's not easy to see is the kitchen tucked back in the corner, but that means we're free to imagine it potentially looking like this:

This kitchen looks like a sweet fit. Plus, if you're going to have scallops all along your loft, you need to have some in the kitchen, too.

Again, it's hard to get a sense of the floor plan from the listing photos, but I think the area in front of the kitchen would make a nice dining space.  How cozy, tucked in by the fireplace like that.

That brings us to this mystery space, which I believe is the sunporch:

It definitely needs some cozy, especially of the Christmas variety.

Upstairs is this clean and bright skylighted bedroom:

Let's just it keep it clean and simple:

Ok, clean and simple, and Christmasy!

There.  Now before we finish our walk around the lake, we have one last thing to decorate: 

Now all of our gingerbread house is bedecked and be-bowed and we can get back to enjoying Christmas at the lake.  Hope you enjoyed our walk!
