A 1940 Francis Abreau original, this cottage renovation embraced the vision Mr. Abreau had. During the project, it was discovered two lackluster additions had been added to the cottage in the 1970s. These areas were improved substantially by adding interior details that more closely match the original part of the house. A new porch addition was added to the rear of the house and utilized local vernacular materials such as coon shell tabby and Savannah Grey brick. The renovation to the site included a new pool, complete hardscape changes, and all new landscaping.
