Formerly an animal and vegetable farm, this impressive 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 roomy 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, cozy eateries, fashionable pier, and close by attractions such as local fishing, boating, bird watching, Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, Fort Jackson, Camp Lejeune, and Cherry Point.
The home 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 anxiety falls away. I hope you savor your stay.
This is a newer home and completely refreshed from the kitchen to the closets. There are tons of windows, which make the home bright and airy and provide vistas of the broad yard and field.
With 4 queen beds, everybody 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 home includes an eat in kitchen with breakfast bar and dining room, a enormous living room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and laundry room.
This home is great for individuals, families, or groups. Kids are welcome, but please note the home is not kid-proofed and does not provide any infant/toddler supplies or furnishings.
Guests can access everything, including a completely equipped kitchen and the washer and dryer. Please, clean what you use (dishes, stovetop, spills, etc.) and return everything to its place (games, remotes, keys, etc.)

Animals and farm animals formerly lived on this property.
I appreciate this little area because it is a safe, peaceful, close-knit community. All of the neighbors know each other and are very friendly, but there is so much land between this home and the next, that there is tons of privacy. The home 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 appreciate all the downtown activity.
You'll be about 10 mins. from anything in New Bern. With fast and simple highway access, downtown is nearly a straight shot from any close by road.
