The New American Remodel
The New American Remodel

Honoring tradition.
Built for the future.

The original home dates back to the 1930s. The project sits on a large lot in the Rose Isle/Beverly Shores neighborhood north of downtown Orlando, near Winter Park.

Our goal was to maintain the home’s historical elements while substantially increasing the square footage, incorporating the newest products, integrating contemporary technology, and improving energy efficiency.

Renovations

Renovations included opening up existing rooms to allow for better traffic flow and adding new spaces that included: a modern gourmet kitchen, family room, large covered porch/outdoor living area, summer kitchen, gallery, master suite, garage, laundry room, and bonus room with an elevator. All air conditioning, plumbing, and electrical systems were replaced while we simultaneously added smart home technology, new windows, doors, and flooring.

Finishing touches outside the home included a new pool, spa, hardscape, and landscape. Refurbished and replicated original ironwork, and new brickwork, complete the exterior redesign.

Country French Estate

A first place winner in the 2020 Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase, this timeless 1950’s Country French Estate had classic style but the floor plan was chopped up and the interior was dark and dated. Our team gutted the home to the studs, reconfigured the floor plan, raised the ceilings and added 2,000 sf. The elegant French style was skillfully brought back to life honoring the heritage but bringing it into the present with all the modern amenities and adding exquisite interior details and finishes.

In the back of the home, an expansive great room was added, adjacent to a new outdoor living area.
