A 100-year-old Audubon Park cottage has been utterly transformed in a 2018 renovation that gutted the structure to its studs. Though the home’s footprint remains basically the same, a balcony has replaced the sagging lean-to carport, and a front porch overhang has been removed, creating a facade with a new door, large transom, and modern configuration of square windows.

It opens to a living area with 20-foot vaulted ceilings, wood floors, and white-painted ductwork, which adds a bit of an industrial edge to the airy space. Descend a few steps in the split-level home to enter a clean-lined kitchen with double glass doors overlooking a petite back yard.

On-trend touches include open shelving, a white subway-tiled backsplash, stainless steel Thermador appliances, and a farm sink.

Highlights of the upstairs master bedroom include a marble-trimmed bathroom and balcony access.

In total, the home has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms in its 2,2120 square feet. It’s a short stroll to Audubon Park, the George W. Carver playground, and University Square shopping center.
