Imagine waking up in a palace in the middle of summer. You're not sure how you got there, but everywhere you look you see wreaths, nativity scenes, and wall-to-wall Christmas decorations. You might just re-think this whole Santa Claus thing and wonder if you woke up at his place in the north pole.

In reality you'd be at a mansion in Colts Neck, NJ and you could be living there permanently if you can come up with $2,199,999. There's a listing for what's being called the 'Christmas mansion' because the owners leave elaborate holiday decorations up year round throughout the 5,420 square foot property.

Take a look.

The property taxes are listed on Zillow.com at $24,064 per year. It's been listed since October 16. Outside: a 65 by 22 foot salt water pool, a waterfall, a 2,000 sq. ft. patio that will make you feel like you're staying at a resort. Inside: granite counters, cherrywood cabinets in kitchen, two master bedroom suites each with a six foot Whirlpool tub, a sauna, a gym area, crown molding and custom woodwork, the list goes on and on.

What, no elf workshop?
