Just north of Orlando in Winter Park, Florida, a revamped, two-bedroom cottage barely resembles its former self. The concrete block structure, built in 1952 amidst a post-war housing boom, originally looked exactly like what you might expect to find in the suburban neighborhood. A recent renovation changed all of that—cladding the exterior and interior in warm wood tones while transforming the facade with floor-to-ceiling windows.
Last sold in 2018, nearly every corner of the 968-square-foot home has since been revamped. Inside, concrete floors were covered in reclaimed European oak and the ceilings clad in cedar. Massive windows wrap around a central great room, which was opened up to to create an open kitchen and living area. Designer lighting and other custom features add an unexpected finish to each space.
Outside, a new row of trees create an intimate enclosure for the front of the home while custom landscape lighting illuminates them at night. A grassy, fenced-in backyard is complete with what else but a pair of palm trees. The home itself is also within walking distance of area shops and restaurants. Scroll ahead to see more of the revamped abode, now asking $479,000.
648 Depugh Street in Winter Park, Florida, is currently listed for $479,000 by Mick Night and John Pinel of Premier Sotheby's International Realty.
