The Fairytale Cottages of Carmel-by-the Sea

After Hugh Comstock had built Hansel and Gretel to showcase his wife's doll collection, he built a home for himself and Mayotta . Built in 1925, they named the cottage "OBERS". The combination of Comstock adobe brick, Carmel stone and hand carved trim makes it truly a work of art. The recessed windows of the second story are unusual and add unique character.
