A little about the builder, Hugh Comstock: 'Hugh Comstock developed the Fairy Tale style of architecture with which Carmel has become closely identified. Born in Evanston, Illinois in 1893, Comstock moved to Santa Rosa with his family in 1907. In 1924, he came to Carmel to visit his sister and met and married Mayotta Brown. The two decided to remain in Carmel as Mayotta had a successful doll making business. Comstock's career as a designer-builder began when his wife asked him to build a cottage for her dolls. The 'Doll's House' became the first of many Fairy Tale style cottages he would design and build.' (Historic Context Statement Carmel-by-the-Sea, page 96)
