Or drive for that matter, but I digress, this is a Fairy Tale house tour. Tuck Box, built in by Hugh Comstock for artist Bonnie Lee to display her antiques and rare shawl collection, is the iconic fairytale cottage of Carmel. Pedro J. Lemos, a Stanford art professor, later purchased the cottage and added the courtyard and adjacent buildings, including a garden shop in his own fairytale inspired building at the rear.

      Architecture - Fairy Tale Houses Comstock Historical Hill District. The original square foot cottage was built in by Mr. Comstock's father-in-law, Thomas M. Browne.
