Located just outside of Orlando, the fully renovated cottage also offers European Oak flooring and cedar-clad ceilings.

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.

Before: In a 2018 listing photo, the concrete block structure is adorned only by a few small windows along the painted facade.

After: Cedar shake siding and expansive windows transformed the facade, which also now features a stuccoed finish with brick trim. A Chicago brick driveway and custom landscaping round out the new look.

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.

New windows wrap around a corner of the entryway. The natural oak flooring and cedar tongue-and-groove ceilings run throughout the interior.
