Video of 31 Toppans Ln | Newburyport, Massachusetts real estate & homes - This Fabulous French inspired restoration of an important 1819 Federalist home has been a labor of love with incomparable attention to detail. During the Federal period in Newburyport interior design changed in reaction to the overthrow of the crown, from English d├ęcor to French influences with the local elite importing French wall coverings  and textiles.

This home pays homage to that tradition. The area finest restoration craftsmen were charged with bringing the owner vision to fruition.
The exterior boasts new landscaping throughout, including new fencing, brick, bluestone and granite posts made from sourced granite from Boston's Big Dig.  Underground electric allows for exterior lighting.

The chef's kitchen feature soapstone counters and sink a La Canche stove and antique French light fixtures.

Numerous updates and renovations bring this historic home into the modern era....  including repairing and restoring existing shutters and storm windows, the restored attached barn and carriage house, which is heated with new gas radiant heat and blown in insulation, and accented with hand milled hardware and custom made doors.

The heating and plumbing systems were replaced and upgraded, chimneys restored, new copper gutters and so much more.

With 3200 Square feet of living space on 1/3 acre -- this is a rare find.
