Anna Maria Beach Cottages - Anna Maria, FL

One of Anna Maria's Oldest beach side properties was on the verge of falling down. To fix it was going to take more than a few coats of paint.

Just Ask the new owners.

These very old cottages were purchased by a very energetic English couple. They hired the Island's famous designer Emily Anne Smith to redesign and update the property.

From our perspective this was a very challenging job in that our first impression was "why are these still standing?" Because they were so old and appeared to some extent to be beyond repair.

Due to zoning regulations it would not be possible to reconstruct the buildings entirely. With the vision of the new owners, and our expertise we figured out how to make it happen.

The end result is the talk of the town!
