Carmel-by-the-Sea is known for its charming early 20th century cottages. In the 1920’s, Hugh Comstock decided to base the design of his cottages in Carmel on English country side villages, complete with high pointed roof lines, thatched looking roofs, rolled eaves, asymmetrical storybook stone fireplaces, rounded doors and detailed wooden trim and inlays. Today these Comstock Carmel cottages are some of the most highly sought after properties in Carmel-by-the-Sea. There are 21 remaining Comstock cottages in Carmel today.
The first cottage built in Carmel was built by Michael J. Murphy in 1846, and is still standing today on the corner of San Antonio and 4th Avenue and serves as home to the Carmel Heritage Society. His style is not whimsical like Comstock, but more like a craftsman home without all the decorations, although he did design and build some English country Style homes as well. These are more traditional cottages and his Carmel cottages are highly sought after in today’s market. Murphy was known for building a good quality home and as such he went on to build over 300 buildings in and around Carmel including the Highlands Inn, The Pine Inn, the Harrison Memorial Library and others.
Nowadays, local contractors are building new construction homes to look like old Comstock or Murphy Carmel Cottages. If you drive along Scenic, you will see many examples of such newer Carmel-by-the-Sea cottages. These newer renditions are larger than the originals and obviously have all of the creature comforts of today..
