Welcome to the Witch's Cottage

storybook-style cottage

Storybook Style is an architectural style that reached its peak of popularity in the U.S. during the 1920's. Hollywood, in particular, found its fairy-tale quality alluring, and many fine examples can be found there. This small home, located on a tree-shaded dead-end in Glendale, California, is a charming Storybook cottage: relatively modest and understated, yet full of the defining features of the genre.
