    I love, love, love this one. It is outstanding in every way. I also love the decor. It is clearly based on someone’s personality instead of how they think it should look. Seems like a decent price for what you are getting too.

    Rustic, in a charming way. The kitchen is very authentic.

    Under $300K, in California, and a short walk from the beach? WTH? This is a dream!

    Nice little late Victorian cottage – possibly a planbook design. Remnants of the original muslin and paper finish can be seen on the plank walls – it was properly elegant in its day. With the formal rooms refinished as intended, I’d leave a few spaces as they are to enjoy the Whole Earth character. Very sweet!

      Good call Jim. This is another example of a George F. Barber plan book design. I would love to have seen this one in its original condition. Still, this would make for a great restoration, given the spectacular near-coastal location.

    I am kinda not getting this. The wood walls were what was under a fabric covering that was then painted. Am I correct? And the white strings? nails? are what exactly? If this is correct then what would be the reasoning on leaving them on the wood?

      Looks like they pulled the paper and muslin off and left the residue – for the rustic look they were going for, I guess. It was an alternative to plaster on lath – plank wall with a muslin cloth tacked wet onto it, which dried for a tight flat surface that was wallpapered (usually) or painted. It’s rare to see the original and not usually refinished that way, or this way.

    How about that! Another JH Daverman #18! This was a pretty popular design for Daverman, it was featured in many magazines and trade journals.
