This post and the next will showcase the kitchens and related interiors of the houses on the 2017 Newburyport Kitchen Tour. I’m breaking it into two because I took a lot of photos and I had a couple of personal favorites which I want to highlight. I didn’t make it to every house on the tour, but was so impressed with all the houses I did visit. Overall, this really was the best year for this Kitchen Tour that I’ve been on.
This new construction colonial style house was built by BradKu Construction in 2016. It has a wooden roof and detached garage which emulates the antique homes in the neighborhood.
The kitchen and overall feel of the open-plan first floor was very calm and serene with soft grays and pale greens.
Cabinets – semi-custom white with a pewter glaze.
Wall color – Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
Backsplash – Mist colored subway tile
Counter tops – White Reef Granite
This American Foursquare home was built in 1916 and renovated by Cummings Architects and BLB Custom Building in 2016. This house had originally been located down the street, but in the 1930’s was moved to its present location in order to make way for the Rte 1 overpass.
Cabinets – inset beaded Shaker in white dove
Range & hood – Bosch range, custom hood
Backsplash – traditional white subway
Counter tops – Quartzite Perla Venata; walnut butcher block on the island
Transom windows: Note that the stained glass in the transom windows over the doors was custom made by a local artisan to marry old and new.
Out of Plum Island is this newly renovated beach house designed by Andrew Sidford Architects. Andrew’s projects regularly appear in the various Newburyport show houses, including last year’s Coastal Haven show house. He’s brilliant at marrying the traditional with modern. This house was originally built in 1997 and a first floor renovation was completed in 2015.
The vaulted ceiling in the living room allows light throughout the day through strategically placed windows. I also liked that the addition of the window wall by the front door provided more room for furniture placement and protects the living room from the elements when the front door is open.
Island – maple topped curved 11-ft island at raised bar height supported by custom made nickel brackets
Countertops – Quartz
Cabinets – Maple with tempered glass
Fireplace – two sided contemporary gas fireplace with mother-of-pearl tiles
(I didn’t get a photo of this house, so here’s the one from the tour booklet)
The new kitchen in this house is located in what was once the garage on the left of the front door. The original kitchen was on the second floor – not exactly a handy spot. The remodel was done by Holly Gagne Interior Design built by the The Riverview Company.
Countertops – Cambria quartz
Cabinets – painted with Benjamin Moore Overcoat
Ceiling beams – custom rough pine
Floors – pre-finished white oak

My favorite homes from the 2017 Newburyport Kitchen Tour

Window blinds but no curtains or drapes except one.
Hi Lynda – and yes, you’re right! Very few window treatments to be seen. In my final post to come on my two favorite houses there is one room with drapery panels and some nice roman shades, but over all, it’s all very minimal.
