5 Storybook Cottages
There is a place called Carmel By The Sea that has storybook cottages. Tourists love to visit the village and tour the charming storybook homes. You may have seen a few posts here before about these fairytale type storybook cottages: Cottage in Carmel, A Vintage Cottage
It looks serene to live in real-life fairytale cottages in a village by the sea. I wanna live there!! It’s a favorite place so you’ll see more posts like this here as time goes on.
If you see a beautiful home you think I will like to feature I would love you to email me. If you want to share your own home or a room in your home I am accepting photos and information in email too. I also want you to tell me about your favorite town and kind of house you want to see here.
Carmel By The Sea cottages often have fairytale rickety fences like this or white picket fences framed by fanciful flowers. This two bedroom cottage with ocean views is awaiting new owners shown by Realtor for $1,195,000. The words enchantment by the sea come to mind when I see Carmel homes.
Here is the first storybook cottage that looks like a castle I have seen. It’s listed as a Mediterranean and is elegant inside with hand-cut stone fireplaces. House hunters will see it’s listed with Coldwell for $2,795,000
Here’s a storybook cottage delightfully named “The Prancing Pony.” It’s a brand new home in Carmel Point. The listing says it’s a “whimsical cottage with handmade doors, Carmel stone turret staircase anchored by a tree trunk, and hand-hewn hickory floors.” Let’s see what they are talking about.
Oh my, that was adorable! Called a unique hand-crafted cottage by Sothebyshomes where more photos can be seen and yes it’s asking price is in the millions at $2,495,000.
I wrote about the Hansel house and Carmel before. New readers may be interested, so here’s the excerpt.
The Hansel house is a favorite part of Carmel By The Sea tour. The feel of the town today is due to this 1924 Hugh Comstock hand-built cottage. Comstock built it for his wife’s doll collection as she had no room for her many dolls. Artists, writers and poets living there asked Comstock to build them a fairytale house too and storybook cottages became the theme of the village. Carmel By The Sea storybook village has whimsically named streets like Cinderella Lane and Secret Garden Passageway.
Storybook cottages would not be complete without Gretel House and now my story is done.
May all your dreams come true just like in a fairytale.
