Eastern North Carolina's finest golf courses.
Home prices in Taberna range from $170,000-$600,000. The average home in Taberna sells
for approximately $280,000. For this price you will get around 2600 heated square feet and a 2 or

lots available. If building could be in your future we can help you find a good building lot and a reputable builder. Steve was a custom home builder for 20 years knows the pittfalls to avoid when building a home.
Golf course membership is optional and those that choose to join
the country club have access to the golf course, swimming pool, Har-true tennis courts,
and a really nice driving range. The golf course is considered one of the best in Eastern
NC. Membership rates are very reasonable, and getting on the course is rarely a problem. There is a very active Men's and Ladies Golf Association so getting a game is easy.

Steve and Jana Tyson were very helpful in our home buying decision. They were not at all pushy and listened to what my wife and my priorities were in looking for a new house. We would strongly recommend them to any new home buyer or seller in the Craven County area.

The Tyson Group found our waterfront dream home and we couldn't be happier. We would recommend them to all our friends.
Carolina Pines is located about 15 miles from downtown
New Bern, about 3 miles Havelock North Carolina and Marine Corps
Air Station (MCAS), Cherry Point and 20 or so minutes from Atlantic Beach. This makes it
attractive to those folks that would like to be a little closer to the
beaches or in the case of military retirees closer to the base.
Carolina Pines was developed in the late 1960's and even today there are sections being developed so new
homes are available in addition to a wide range of existing homes.
there is an 18 hole course located within the community. It's usually no problem to get a tee time
so what better way to wind down the day than to sneak out in the
afternoon and play a few holes.
For information on golf course membership
Home prices range from $130,000's to over $600,000 for a home on
