Emphasize the Entry-Lacking height or grand proportions, small ranch-style homes can sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Good landscaping gets them noticed. For example, use an ornamental arbor or fence to call attention to the house and mark the entrance.

Colorful Cottage Charm  Bright flowers go a long way in creating cottage charm. Here, colorful plantings by the street mimic the flowers overflowing from the home's window boxes. A vine-covered arbor invites visitors to pass through and follow a gently curving pathway to the front door.

We love how sidewalk gardens instantly make a home more welcoming and inviting. In this front garden idea, a few flowers tucked along a split-rail fence create a boundary from the street while adding charm and character.

Hansel ~ Hugh Comstock was a native of Illinois who moved to California at the age  of 14 in 1907.  Until he built Hansel, his only building experience had been in helping construct farm buildings.  When he came to Carmel in 1924 to visit his sister he met & married Mayotta Browne, an entrepreneurial doll maker.  Hugh built his wife this doll house in 1925 to make and sell her "Otsy-Totsy" dolls. Cozy Homes
