Formerly an animal and vegetable farm, this beautiful home sits on 10 acres and is only 2 miles from from hwy 55 and hwy 70 and not far from hwy 17. It has a spacious yard with back porch and wheelchair ramp. Surrounded by a mature forest, the home is still a short drive from New Bern's burgeoning downtown, quaint eateries, popular pier, and nearby attractions such as local fishing, boating, bird watching, Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, Fort Jackson, Camp Lejeune, and Cherry Point.
The house is new, but the land was farmed by my granddad and dad (and their siblings) since the early 1900’s. There were cows, horses, goats, hogs, chickens, dogs, and of course vegetables and flowers. Farming is what helped them survive the Great Depression, raise their families, and continue up to 2013 when my father sold the last goats. It really is a special place where time seems to stop and stress falls away. I hope you enjoy your stay.
This is a newer home and completely updated from the kitchen to the closets. There are lots of windows, which make the home bright and airy and provide views of the expansive yard and field.
With 4 queen beds, everyone in your group will get the space and privacy they want for the price you want. The Master Suite has a queen bed, giant walk-in closet, and private full bathroom with garden tub and shower. The second bedroom has 2 queen beds and a walk-in closet. The third bedroom has 1 queen bed and a walk-in closet.
The house includes an eat in kitchen with breakfast bar and dining room, a large living room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and laundry room.

Pets and farm animals formerly lived on this property.
I love this little area because it is a safe, quiet, close-knit community. All of the neighbors know each other and are very friendly, but there is so much land between this house and the next, that there is lots of privacy. The house is tucked away, surrounded by mature trees and forest, but still less than 2 miles from highway 55 and highway 70 and not far from highway 17. You'll never have your roads blocked off for marathons and festivals, but you'll still be able to enjoy all the downtown activity.
You'll be about 10 minutes from anything in New Bern. With quick and easy highway access, downtown is almost a straight shot from any nearby road.
