After years of neglect followed by a lengthy battle to save it, the landmarked home at 323 Chilean Ave. is finally getting a facelift.

Work began last month on the 1920’s-era Mediterranean Revival-style home, which will be partially demolished as part of a renovation plan approved in November by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

Stuart-based Brownie Structural Movers and Foundation Repair moved a landmarked Chilean Avenue house several feet last month as part of a major renovation project.

A new addition also is planned for the two-story structure, while its footprint will be shifted on the quarter-acre lot.

The new addition and other changes will add about 1,300 square feet to the home for a total of 5,286 square feet, according to the renovation plans. The property includes a main house and two-story guest house with garage.
