Property Description

This lovely historic Cape Cod style cottage was developed by the former owner, as a way to create community and connection. Built in the early 1930's, 'The Little Cottage' is true to the colorful history of Sail Boat Bend. The house resonates with Old Florida charm and it has been completely restored up to LEED Cert. and Modern living. In 2012, it won an award from the City of Fort Lauderdale Historic Preservation board for 'Substantial or Green Rehabilitation'. 
Some of the interior/exterior features include:
Brand new Brick Paved 5 car driveway
High End Appliances such as Thermador, Dacor 5 Burner Gas Stove and 2 Fisher & Paykel Dishwashers, 2 Ovens
Butler's Pantry
Salvaged and re-purposed lumber
Privacy fence salvaged from a landfill
Berms created by re-use of excavated fill from other developer projects in the neighborhood
Concrete slab patios on the property were broken up and re-used for raised-bed planters and pathways keeping concrete out of landfill 
Soy-based foam insulation 
First house in the historic district to have a solar power hot water heater. 
Custom fabricated hurricane windows
Upgraded energy efficient A/C- less than 5 years old
All plumbing and electric has been upgraded
New sewer line installed 2007
Being a classically trained French Chef, the owner created a true chef's 'teaching' kitchen with Energy Star rated appliances and a chef's prep sink. The extensive enviornmentally-friendly renovation of this once dilapidated old Florida cracker cottage located on an overgrown city lot with way too much concrete and lots of cacti now includes organic ZEN gardens- the yard and garden is certified as a natural habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
During the restoration, neighbors became so curious about green renovating and the general goings on with this formerly neglected property, that her dream evolved well beyond that of cooking classes to offer workshops celebrating an easy, elegant and sustainable lifestyle.
MY DREAM is to sell to a buyer who can both continue to honor the historic integrity and spirit of this house with it's zen garden as a place of tranquility. 
Perfect home to design, entertain friends and family, birth new ideas and raise a family in this planet-friendly household.
