It has now been on and off the market over a period of six years, so the real estate brokers and owners of the "Gingerbread House" in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn are trying something new. Douglas Elliman, the firm representing 8220 Narrows Avenue, the official address for the house, has released a drone-shot video of the property to encourage interest in the sale, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports.

The house features six bedrooms spread out over 5,746 square feet of the space, but the overall property spans 20,000 square feet and the video really provides a sense of the larger space.

The property first went on the market in 2009 and for $12 million. The price for this Arts and Crafts-style home has fluctuated in the years since. It was even listed as a rental in 2014, but that didn't quite pan out either.

Douglas Elliman took charge of the sale in July last year, and it has since been listed at $10.99 million. Just some of the breathtaking features of this home, that Curbed got to tour in the summer of 2014, include stained glass windows, intricate woodcarvings and hand-painted ceilings.

Architect James Sarsfield Kennedy designed the house for shipping merchant Howard E. Jones and it was built in 1917.


NOTE: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the house has been on the market for over six years. It has been on and off the market during that time period, but has maintained the same owner. The error is regretted.
