Carmichael Storybook Cottage for Sale Will Blow Your Mind

carmichael storybook cottage

OK, I realize almost every Carmichael agent believes she has listed a Carmichael storybook cottage for sale that is unique and special. But most of those agents are just blowing smoke. Aren’t you bored, bored, bored by emails proclaiming smashing homes or stunning showplaces, when they are really just grotesque cookie-cutter homes? How many fake fireplaces built inside a fake fireplace and pretentious Grecian columns can one person really take? But I will eat my socks if you don’t adore this Carmichael storybook cottage for sale.

Carmichael Storybook Cottage

Built in 1957, this is a mind-blowing home. I kid you not. The previous owner of this home carefully selected its antique fixtures and shipped many items from Europe.  Her daughter called her the original Martha Stewart, only much more authentic and 50 times more talented. This remarkable woman handmade the bath drapes to match the designer wallpaper. She personally wove with her own two hands wall-to-wall rag carpet.

Some of the enchanting light fixtures feature etched wild beasts of the forest.

I hardly know where to begin, so let’s start with the entryway, past the stained glass and wood door, hand-carved and imported from England. To the brick hallway, raised hearth and fireplace. Like entering a castle.

Voila, the kitchen is breathtaking. You will love the attention to detail, and feel the warmth, laughter and love that once filled this space. Wow, voluptuous red. Can you see the Eiffel Tower out the window from here? Oh, look, a copper-lined range hood. How about those custom wood cabinets, which appear as gorgeous as they day they were lovingly created by skilled craftsman. Or, those delightful vintage hanging lanterns? Check out the three different counter heights, they might be covered in terra cotta tile. Definitely, a cook’s dream, for a person who crafts real meals for real people.

Swinging café doors on the other end lead to the raised formal dining room. Step down to the family room and step up at the other end to a unique room. For some reason, I envision a baby grand piano there. After dinner, I see guests chatting and relaxing in oversized chairs in front of the fireplace sipping brandy or maybe a single malt Scotch. Surely someone in the house would love to play a little Strauss for us on the piano?

And now, the master suite. Oooo, la, la! You really cannot enjoy the print on the wallpaper from this photo, you need to see it in person. So subtle, delicate, lovely. Wallpaper is coming back, you know! Look at that wood: the floors, doors, it’s in the all the windows, no plastic or vinyl windows in this Carmichael storybook cottage for sale. So rich. Orgasmic, even. Yes, this room will undoubtedly lead to sustained and dare I suggest heightened relations.

Obviously, I cannot show you every room and every detail but the virtual tour can. You can also view this home for yourself in person. You have to. You know you do. Don’t fight that urge. Listen to your instincts telling you that you would have to be half mad not to want to own this home and caress every corner of it.
