This 1960’s block house became another “Renaissance Residence” in Historic Longwood. With the restoration in 2009 of it’s neighboring home at 211 W. Warren Ave., two and a half years of visions and dreams were designed by Architect Michael Smith, replete with similar details from her “sister house” circa 1885 Clouser Restoration by Southern Heritage in 2009. This Florida Victorian is a must see for its historic theme and craftsman details. The original structure was demolished down to it’s 20’ x 44’ perimeter. From there, we built up the block walls to 9’4” and with a 45 degree angle roof, the story and a half takes on transitional ceiling lines upstairs; consistent with the 1900’s vernacular framed buildings. The complete exterior is insulated on the “hotside” as well as inside the walls the foam insulation encloses the underside of the roof deck. The energy efficient building saves on energy costs and maintenance for the long term on the home. The craftsmanship and woodworking are performed by our men, in-house… The natural cherry floors are full 3/4” x 5 1/2”; sanded and finished in place. The stone & tile is also done by our own team of craftsmen. The galley kitchen is traditional & functional with a nice window view. As you approach the front door of the home, your thoughts remind you of a “nice country cottage”…When you leave you may say, “My goodness, I never thought there was that much useable space”.
