Location: Carmel, California

Price: $1,795,000

It’s not often that we find a house that looks ready to star in a Disney fairy tale, but this two-bedroom, one-bath cottage in central California fits the bill. Set on a 12,100 square foot lot, the house exudes a European ambiance. A turret-style entrance greets you at the entrance while the 1945 home boasts a ton of charm thanks to paned windows, a dutch door, and stone-floored entry.

It all feels like a French country getaway, especially with the property’s Carmel stone fireplaces, wooden floors, and plaster walls. A remodeled kitchen features a gorgeous butcher block island, plentiful windows, and an eat-in area just to the side. The house is compact with only two bedrooms, but they are well-sized and airy.

Outside, carefully manicured gardens include boxwood-edged pathways, loads of flowers, and a bubbling fountain in a stone courtyard.

If this picture-perfect retreat is your dream cottage, it’s on the market now for $1,795,000.
