Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We’d love to see what you’ve got.
Location: Carmel Valley, California
An architectural icon from 1950 to about 1975, the A-frame is a beloved home of the past, a triangle-design built for lounging on outdoor decks and staring at nature. There are also brand new A-frames being built, including these affordable kit homes that can be built by just two people.
Still, we love the A-frames of yesterday, including this cute one-bedroom, one-bath version in the Carmel Valley. Built in 1964, the home sits on 2.5 acres of forested land with a striking front garden and landscaping. A stone facade and dormer windows add to the charm of the A-frame shape, and an expansive deck provides indoor-outdoor living.
Inside, 650 square feet of living space is spread over the main floor’s living, dining, and cooking spaces, while upstairs lies the standard bedroom loft and a flex room currently used as an office. Other perks include a mud room and a large river rock fireplace that serves as a centerpiece of the downstairs.
If you’ve always dreamed of owning an A-frame this California beauty at 65 Hitchcock Canyon Road is on the market now for $565,000.
