A Classic Board and Batten Cottage in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Classic Board and Batten Cottage

I am swooning over this classic board and batten cottage in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Sometimes we just want something sweet and simple, but full of cozy charm, character, and class.

After we walk through the grape stake fence and artistic gateway doors, we land on an enclosed patio that reveals an awesome water fountain. Just before knocking on the front door we can ring a charming old bell to announce our arrival.

“This three bedroom two bath home was artistically inspired by Don McBride and beautifully renovated by Frank Bruno circa 2007.”  So the house, that lists as a Bungalow, Cottage, is only 11 years old and already got a facelift.

I think grape stake fencing like this is a warm and friendly curb appeal design and is often seen in Carmel homes.

Lovely living room with “gas fireplace made of Carmel stone.” I am looking at the unexpected stained glass window, the vaulted ceiling and french doors leading out to the enclosed patio.

The fancy lantern makes this quaint little dining room special. More French doors in the dining room also lead out to the patio.

I love this classic board and batten cottage. It is just as charming as can be and a class act. The house has other rooms not shown and more details on Monterey Peninsula where I found this cottage.  Homes in Carmel are pricey. This one is $2,450,000.
