Usually when you hear about a 1911 house it is either broken down to unaffordably renovated. Here's an example of a remodel that looks good and works well. This 1,700 square foot, 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage for $589,000 in Fremont features some simple touches that make this house unique without raising the price into seven digits. A woodfire oven out back perfect for pizzas and a kitchen equipped with a full-size pot rack and two sinks. Foodies, rejoice! There isn't much yard, which makes it easier to maintain. The back is half brick patio, no rotting wood to worry about; and terraced gardens, which means less bending for weeding. The landscaping has proven itself.
