1920s Historic American Foursquare Duplex

RockfordMaple CaramelRani CNew Bern, North Carolina

We purchase a 1920 historic registered American Foursquare duplex in the historic district of Riverside in New Bern, NC. We had two complete kitchens to renovate, and needed to do so economically and with good construction and materials. We are rehabbing this huge 4000 Sq. Ft duplex according to guidelines from the Historic Preservation Commission in order to benefit from the tax credits and to bring this magnificent old building back to its former glory. The original kitchen was still intact, but in very poor condition with so much overpainting, you couldn’t see the architectural detail. We chose Rockford style cabinets to keep the 1920’s flavor as much as possible, and had the upper cabinets in Painted White, and the base cabinets in Maple Caramel. Working with Jayelynn Carlson on the design was a joy, her knowledge and patience making the process as painless as possible. We have yet to finish the second kitchen, but Side A, the rental side is done!
