This romantic cottage is similar in design to some of the fairy- tale cottages found at Blaise Hamlet in northwest Bristol, England. Peeking out from under a heavy thatch roof and ivy-draped walls are little windows with diamond panes.
There’s no greater modern-day fairytale village than Carmel-by-the-Sea in California. This community features a number of charming homes built in the 1920s by Hugh Comstock. It all began when the architect’s wife asked him to build her a doll house as a show room for the rag dolls she sold, and the result was ‘Hansel’, above.
