Great Kitchens for the Holidays: 2013

The holidays are a time for family. No matter what your faith is, this time of year always has an added emphasis on spending time with your loved ones. While it can be stressful, it’s normally a heartwarming time of year that revolves around good company and something we love just as much as family:

Good Food.

Yes, in addition to being about family, the holidays are about eating as many tasty home-cooked meals as possible. Turkey, stuffing, gravy, glazed hams, pies of all kinds, and, at least in our home, eggplant parm are all par for the course and welcome to be eaten all at once.  To us here at Real Estate Associates, holiday food is simply magical.

Food, unfortunately, doesn’t just appear by magic. Every home cook has their dream kitchen, a space in which they can prepare all five courses at once while simultaneously sharing drinks with brothers, sisters and cousins from faraway lands like Indiana. Being in the real estate business, we have the opportunity to view some stunning cooking spaces up close and have assembled (in no particular order) a list of our favorite kitchens.

All homes in this list are currently on the market and listed with Real Estate Associates:

19 Depot Road, Bourne

Check out this masterfully restored Victorian-era kitchen. Thanks to some great planning by the original owners 113 years ago, the Labyrinth House has a bright, airy and spacious kitchen with seating for four at the bar and a breakfast nook. Views of the property’s 1+ acres of eye-friendly grounds make up for the lack of some bells and whistles. Beedeboard, bright cabinets, gas fixtures and the home’s history as a bed and breakfast means you can do some serious cooking here.
