It's in woodsy, upscale Orinda, California, and it's beautiful. That's to be expected. The surprise is that this one-bedroom cottage, with full kitchen, living room, and bath, is only 674 square feet. The ''mother-in-law'' home is separated by a fountain and a brick courtyard from the main house.| Mitch Tobias
I think adding the round colonial like columns to a traditional exterior floor plan is what makes the home inviting! As a child, and still to this day my inner child screams "old romantic southern charm".....When I see those columns on a home I think about sipping sweet tea and rocking in a chair while my kids run and play.
