Historical Remodeled Home, Orlando Colonial
Historical remodeled home & addition: Lake Conway, Orlando Colonial Remodel: Former fishing camp to luxury 5000+ square foot million dollar home.
GOBA, Greater Orlando Builders Association: Parade of Homes, First place award for a whole house remodel in the $750,000 to $999,990 range.
This historical remodeled home was well maintained, but the homeowners, Florida antique collectors, needed a large open modern Kitchen with a view of the lake, a large age-in-place Master Suite, a large “Florida Room” for entertaining, a lock-off Bathroom for boaters, a new attached garage, and a covered entry. The second-floor master bedroom, 1920s era bathrooms and tiny original kitchen did not work for entertaining or aging-in-place.
Classical Home Design, Inc. designed the home prior to the builder’s involvement.
The covered entry was added per owners request for rain protection. The door surround is original. Built inside benches were designed, but not in place yet in this photo. The center 2 story portion is the original part of the home. The new luxury master suite is to the left and the new garages and kitchen are to the right. I love when the additions are seamless.
The center portion of the home is the original house. We started by removing a screen porch addition to the right and a garage addition to the left. The original home remained intact. The existing kitchen became the new laundry room by replacing the stove and refrigerator with a washer and dryer. The 1930s cabinets and counter top were kept in place and refinished. We opened the wall at the dining room windows to add a 1 story addition to the left for the new garage, new kitchen, workspaces, bathroom, and large pantry. We opened a side window from the living room as a doorway to a new master suite addition to the right. A large Florida room style gathering room filled in the rear. I will post the plans when I find them.
This is the new kitchen addition with large windows open to the lake view. The opening to the right with a glass transom leads into the original Dining Room.
The second opening leads to the new Florida Room. The vaulted ceiling is stained wood bead board. Classical Home Design, Inc. designed the kitchen layout. Grant Gribble, ASID worked with the homeowner on the kitchen finishes. Colors were selected to as a backdrop to the Homeowners antique Coca-Cola collection.
