The Cutest Cottage By The Sea Ever!
As soon as I saw this little cottage with its arched front door and teal trim, I wanted to hug it. It may be the cutest cottage I ever found. A lot of people must agree because I found out this little house called Casa Carmela is the winner in the category of Living Large in Small Spaces in the HGTV Ultimate House Hunt for 2017.
It is a cottage by the sea in Carmel, California in the Golden Rectangle within walking distance of the beach and the town.
Rickety wooden picket fence in the front yard is a storybook curb appeal often seen in Carmel cottages.
The arched front door and two little windows trimmed in teal with plenty of colorful plants look like a fairytale scene in a children’s book.
Cottage By The Sea Living Room and Kitchen:
I love the awesome feature above the white stone fireplace wooden doors that hide the TV.
HGTV has a lot of details about the cottage. “The kitchen has granite countertops and backsplash that compliment the elements in the nearby living room.”
I’ve never seen wood kitchen cabinets like this before. They blend with the living room coffee table and mantle and have an almost shabby chic chalk paint look to them, but in wood. The listing says the doors and cabinets are Knotty Alder.
Bedrooms and Bath:
Master bedroom has a lovely corner fireplace and vaulted ceiling and skylights.
HGTV: “A desk and office chair make use of a corner window space in this bedroom, which provides deck access and includes exposed ceiling beams.”
I would love spending time on the charming deck built around the gnarly tree.
The shower and tub have beautiful stone tile.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
“Deck landing leads to fire pit table on a flagstone patio.”
There were 10 houses nominated for the 2017 HGTV Ultimate House Hunt Living Large in Small Spaces category. On HGTV this cottage is called Custom Island Cottage. The listing on Monterey Peninsula where I first found out about this cottage shows it was custom-built in 2007. The listing price tag is $2,195,000.
I adore this cottage by the sea house that exudes Carmel charm and can see why it won. If I could I would buy it for its cute factor front face (OMG so cute) and just simple cottage style living. Great things come in small packages.
