GerrityStone, New England’s premier interior and exterior custom stonework and granite specialist, is pleased to announce their participation in one of the oldest and most storied projects on the PBS show This Old House, the Nathaniel Page Homestead renovation in Bedford, Massachusetts.
The early Georgian house, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, was built in c. 1720 and was once occupied by Nathaniel Page, a participant in the American Revolutionary War. For the renovation, the current owners wanted to retain the historic character while adding some modern amenities.
Episodes of the This Old House Bedford Project began airing in October of 2011. GerrityStone’s Danny Puccio, Project Manager, was featured in episode number 3114, which first aired nationally on PBS on January 5, 2012. In this episode, Puccio and the GerrityStone team hoisted the 1300-pound marble island top into the kitchen. The materials from GerrityStone used in the kitchen include a 2cm (3/4″) Black Zimbabwe honed granite for the perimeter and pantry and a 5cm(2″) White Danby polished marble for the countertop. The White Danby marble comes from Danby, Vermont and is called Imperial Danby. These stone tops have a straight polish edge detail and only the pantry has a 4″ back splash.
“It was great to work with the team at This Old House on this project,” says Puccio. “The marble we use in this house is a unique local piece, completely customized for a compost bin and farmers sink. This is exactly the type of project where Gerrity excels, so this gave us the opportunity to really showcase what we do best. Additionally, this stone and design keeps the historical integrity of the kitchen while at the same time adding a modern touch.”
