I love reading the Real Estate Section of the Pine Cone.

House hunting is such fun. This is my latest find appropriately named “Dreams Do Come True”.

I love the dining room with its built-in hutch and window seat with storage below.

Red being my current color of choice, the kitchen really feels cozy.

Who would not love the stainless steel appliances, farm sink, hardwood floors and quartz countertops.

There is even a great pantry area.

How inviting.

There is even a garage ( I like the flower box and shutters on the garage window- that is real attention to detail).

    Love how colorful the rooms are painted. I always like stairs off the kitchen, window seats, and a fireplace in the master bedroom. Interesting glass door in the laundry room too.

    Your fantastic real estate posts always leave me wondering why I was not born rich.

    uh, so sweet! and ocean views??? How perfect is that? I too, lament the fact that I was born poor and cannot afford such a treasure 😦

    Nice place. Some how it’s a bit larger than the cottage I lived in at Guadalupe and Pico in 1960. I guess not many real “cottages” still exist.

    I love living in Carmel and part of the joy is our fantastic gardens. I find so much joy in gardening I could not imagine having such a sterile yard without personal touches in flowers or plants. I think they miss out on a lot by not doing their own gardening and by not participating in the English Garden theme that is so well loved here. I like a personal touch on my house as well so this sterile approach would not appeal to me.

    We were just in your lovely village for 3 days this week. Oh to be able to live there would truly be a dream come true!! I never get tired of driving up and down the streets looking at all the beautiful homes and cottages. You live in paradise!! xo kathysue
