THE FRIVOLOUS FROG

IMG_9172

Bill and I have watched the owners of this home settle in and lavish it with attention and personal details. It is obviously loved. 

Paul Hollingsworth of Coldwell Banker Realty sends me a “heads up” that it is for sale. 

The listing sheet information is courtesy of Peter Butler at Carmel Reality Company.

So lets tour The Frivolous Frog.

Originally built in 1924 and remodeled in 2007, this Cape Cod sits on 2 lots at the NE corner of Carmelo and 13th. I have often admired the name tiles and wonder how it got its name. This guy looks like he knows how to have a good time.

The flag is always flying its welcoming banner on the front porch.
