Thank you homeowners who have opened their homes for the 2017 Kitchens of New Bern Tour:  

Greenbrier Neighborhood

438 Innisbrook Lane, New Bern, NC 28562

On the 8th fairway of the Emerald Golf course, the kitchen, the home and the view are stunning!   After much research, the homeowner decided to prevent back strain by raising all the cabinets 4 higher than standard height, even the dishwasher is raised to ADA compliant height, brilliant idea! 

1013 Basil Drive, New Bern, NC 28562

You could only wonder what the first builder was thinking when the original kitchen was designed. Now, with an excellent redesign and modern cabinetry, and that old space is history. 

A cook’s kitchen and a wine lovers’ paradise. Quartz countertops, clever hardware placement and light fixture make for a perfect open floor plan great for entertaining. This is a lovely neighborhood home with a 2017 update everyone will love.

 

Trent Woods Neighborhood 

4601 West Fairways Drive, New Bern, NC 28562

Backing up to the New Bern Country Club Golf Course, this home’s new addition allowed for the family to have an open entertaining space with the perfect island for the family to eat together. It has stunning quartzite countertops, beautiful colors, and all the right storage gadgets you could dream of.

4507 West Fairways Drive, New Bern, NC 28562

With a lovely view of the 4th green of the New Bern Golf & Country Club, this home showcases the fact that paint and a detail here and there, can create a completely new l kitchen.  Tongue and groove cypress on the ceiling gives a great unexpected visual, the raised bar with stunning granite gives guests a place to engage with the hostess during a party, and no corner was wasted for clever storage for spices. The homeowner’s extensive pottery collection is an added bonus to visiting this kitchen!

125 Trent Shores Drive, New Bern, NC 28562

A dream kitchen for any hostess with plenty of entertainment space, every modern appliance you could hope for, multiple cabinet finishes, and granite countertops.  It’s a place for a party. It’s a riverfront home with an outdoor kitchen to view as well. A simply stunning home.

 

Degraffenreid Park Neighborhood 

1501 Lucerne Way, New Bern, NC 28560 

In the lovely neighborhood of Degraffenreid, homeowners with a passion to bake designed this lovely cook’s kitchen.  This remodel brought this home into the 21st century, while keeping exposed brick from a former fireplace as a focal feature of their space. The walnut butcher block island on wheels is a stunning, smart addition to this kitchen.  Parking on Fort Totten or on Lucerne Way.

 

Downtown New Bern

212 New Street, New Bern, NC 28560

An encore performance from last year’s tour.  At the request of many from last year, the homeowner’s have graciously offered to open their home again to see the masterpiece

that is their completed island. A piece of art is the only way to describe what they have done. Awe inspiring!

254 Pollock Street, New Bern, NC 28560

Many have been curious about the new homes in the Dunn Building. These homeowners kindly said yes to all the curiosity to show-off the brilliant design concept of downtown condo living.  Elevator available.
