Built in 1925, this Carmel home looks like the setting of Merchant-Ivory flick. Set on a 3,920-square-foot lot, the cottage comes with English countryside charm aplenty:. A rose garden greets you as you make your way to the front door, leading to house with dark woods and period details galore.

Featuring two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 975 square feet, this abode comes with vaulted ceilings, wood paneling, exposed beams, skylights, a Dutch door, a private gazebo, decks, and a stone wall.

There’s even a second level, which leads you to the master bedroom area.

The property has been lovingly cared for over the years, gently renovated as of late so as not to bruise its other-era charm. If this is your idea of a dream home, it can be yours for a cool $1,320,000.

Listing is through Kirk Probasco for Sotheby’s International Realty.
