The perfect marriage of vintage and modern, this 1940s bungalow beckons as you drive up. The friendly, warm yellow house sits the corner of Lake Highland Drive and Spokane Avenue in downtown Orlando. The exterior of the house features brand-new siding, new architectural-shingle roof, sturdy artistic white railings and energy-efficient windows. The exterior lighting is in keeping with the retro-modern feel of the home. There are several patio areas for evenings spent barbecuing or enjoying after-dinner drinks. Inside, the house retains its vintage feel but features modern amenities. When you open the door, the first thing you notice are the original floors transformed by modern espresso stain and a high-gloss finish. There is a charming arched entry to the rest of the house from the living room. The original plaster ceiling and walls have been re-plastered throughout the house. There is can lighting in the living areas, and mercury glass fixtures adorn the dining area.
Ceiling fans grace the living room, flex room and bedrooms. The reconfigured kitchen has gleaming quartz countertops and a huge stainless-steel sink. The Whirlpool Gold appliances are white with stainless handles. There is a large quartz bar area that means friends can sit and chat while you make dinner. The floor-to-ceiling tile bath features the original, deep tub that has been refurbished gleaming white with new brushed nickel hardware including a rainfall showerhead. There is a custom-built, solid-wood cabinet with dovetailed drawers tucked next to the tub. The home features new air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, Zoysia grass and a new irrigation system. The garage has been completely rebuilt and features a washer/dryer area as well as a large new water heater. The home is in the popular Mills/50 District and has an R2 lot that means there’s plenty of room for a pool or additions, such as a separate mother-in-law cottage.
