5 Charming Storybook Homes That Promise To Provide Happy Beginnings

5 Storybook Homes That Could Provide Happy Endings...Or Beginnings

This batch of five storybook homes available around the country is one of our best yet with fanciful features that tickle the imagination. They’re real charmers inside and out, and they’ve all been updated and customized to meet the needs of today’s buyers.

Sharp angles and slick shiny surfaces, begone! There isn’t a disappearing glass wall in this quintet. But there are plenty of stone walls and fireplaces, gabled roofs, and cozy alcoves, in addition to herb gardens, rolling lawns, and decades-old sheltering trees.

One even comes with a water wheel to churn water from a stream to a pond.

If you love the comforts of the past as a refuge from the challenges of the present, one of these five fanciful storybook homes might be for you.

284 Whiley Rd, Groton, MA

Price: $739,900
Duck! This delightful two-bedroom dwelling overlooking Duck Pond has all the whimsy of a storybook cottage and all the luxury of a modern home.

Built in 2018 by the current owners, the home has a fairy-tale ambiance thanks to the cedar shingles, a pointy roof, an arched doorway, window boxes, and stone walls.

The interior spaces have a modern vibe, though. If this is your grandma’s cottage, she is one very hip granny. Granite counters, stainless-steel appliances, and a dining peninsula highlight a kitchen that opens up to a sunny great room with living and dining space.

Upstairs there’s a spacious main suite, a guest suite, and a loft room—all overlooking the water. There’s also a separate two-car garage and an office/studio cottage. It’s an idyllic getaway space or work-from-home residence.

485 Madeline Dr, Pasadena, CA 91105

Price: $2,000,000
Enchantingly historical: Known as “The Old Mill,” this charming structure is all that’s left of Pasadena’s Busch Gardens Park, which closed in 1937.

Built in a European cottage style, the home features a water wheel, a two-story cellar, as well as a large brick terrace for entertaining.

Leaded windows, stone walls, high and beamed ceilings, and fascinating nooks and crannies can be found throughout the two-bedroom residence, which measures 900 square feet.

The cottage is surrounded by garden paths with river rock benches, shaded by ancient trees, and accented by ivy-covered hills.

446 W Suffolk Ave, Dallas, TX

Western wonder: You might expect a rustic ranch house in Dallas. However, this tidy Tudor in Homestead Park, an enclave that contains almost exclusively storybook homes built nearly a century ago, is a pleasant surprise

The two-bedroom, 1,391-square-foot residence has been carefully restored, but it still features the original wood flooring, Chambers stove in the kitchen, and delightful alcoves.

The backyard features brick pathways, water fountains, gardens, and mature foliage. After less than two weeks on the market, an offer has been accepted for this home.

1461 Monaco Pkwy, Denver, CO

Price: $849,900
Denver darling: This adorable three-bedroom has all the charm of a red brick bungalow built in the 1920s—and all the convenience of a home built in the 2020s.

Inside this 2,224-square-foot house is a gleaming new kitchen with a quaint breakfast booth. There’s also a hidden, built-in workspace warmed by the original brick fireplace in the living room.

A recently finished basement is a real showstopper with its large media area and bar. There’s also a bedroom, full bath, and laundry room down there.

Surrounded by gardens, a grassy lawn, and stately homes from the same era, this home is close to parks, shops, and restaurants.

Denver, CO

205 Myrtle Dr, Great Neck, NY

Price: $2,158,000
French fantasy: This French country–style, four-bedroom home ventures beyond “storybook” and heads into historical romance novel territory.

It’s located in prestigious Great Neck Estates on Long Island, about a half-hour away from New York City. Inside, it’s full of posh details like French doors, swag draperies, and an ornate cocktail lounge.

Bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and luxurious, with plenty of closet space. There’s also plenty of room on the immaculately manicured lot to wander and ponder a story of your very own.
