It’s been a while since we took a tour of a storybook cottage in Carmel, I’m having serious withdrawals! I have to get my storybook cottage fix every now and then!
I’m not sure if this home is still for sale, it’s one I saw a while back and thought was too cute to not share. I absolutely love the curb appeal with all the trees and the gated entrance, Even the garage looks adorable!
Inside there’s tons of cottage charm, including a rock fireplace with a beefy mantel. I love how the Carmel-by-the-Sea cottages almost always have lofty, beamed ceilings and a window seat or two.
This is the style/size cottage I see myself downsizing to one day. I love the sunshine color of the hardwood floors.
A view of the kitchen from the other end. I think I see a Dutch door.
Yep, definitely a Dutch door with a cute bay window…more of that cottage charm! I kind of like the stained panel wall, it breaks up all the white and adds a lot of warmth.
We see more of those great loft ceilings in the bedrooms. It’s amazing how raising the ceiling can make a room feel so much larger.
I think I’d like a shorter bed in front of the windows to take full advantage of all the great light this room must get. What kind of bed would you put there? Maybe an iron bed or something with an open-type headboard?
Another beautiful bedroom with a beamed ceiling and lots of windows. It even looks like there may be windows on the other side, from the light I see coming in on that side. Love a room with tons of windows!
The third bedroom has great light, too! I wish we still built homes with windows on more than one side of the room. Most of the homes where I live just have them on one side, even when it’s an end room or a room where more windows could have been added. Maybe we don’t have as many windows now because so many homes are built close together now in subdivisions, and of course the fact we have air conditioning. I still love the old way with lots of windows, though. How about you?
Love this area for entertaining with the built-in grill. I could so see having friends over for cookouts here.

Love a storybook home? This is one of my all-time favorites! It sits atop Elder Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee and has the most amazing views you’ve ever seen! You’ll find the tour of this gorgeous home here: A Storybook Home With To-Die-For Views
