In 1924, Hugh Comstock, who had no experience or training as an architect or builder, constructed a fairytale cottage for his wife’s successful ragdoll business.
Comstock went on to build over 20 whimsical cottages for friends and clients in Carmel, many of which you can still see about town today.
