Historic Downtown New Bern

Real Estate with Real Charm

The Blades mansion, shown on the left, is located on Johnson Street in downtown New Bern. This elaborate Queen Anne House was designed by renowned architect Herbert Simpson for lumber magnate William B. Blades. It combines elements of Queen Anne and Greek Revival, making it one of the most elegant mansions in New Bern. The Blades brothers were New Bern's largest lumber barons in the early 1900's. At one time New Bern had over 20 lumber mills and lumber, along with agriculture, was the areas largest employer.

 Downtown New Bern is one of the finest historic districts in the nation. Comprised of beautiful historic homes dating back to the late 1700s and early 1800s, . There are the large and palatial ones with beautiful garden areas, there are the neat bungalows, perfectly manicured as well as historic condos and town homes. Some areas of downtown are multi-zoned, allowing for residential and commercial uses.

In several locations historic homes have been converted to small shops on ground floors with living quarters on the second and third floors. Other sections are strictly residential.

Downtown is alive with fashionable shops, upscale restaurants, The Historic Tryon Palace, art shops, antiques, crafts and clothing shops, gourmet coffee shops, several excellent civic theatres, and more. And all are within walking distance.

Downtown is a great place to call home. For more information call your New Bern Real Estate authority-252 514 9157.



This is the newest of New Bern's three historic districts.  Admission to the National Register occurred in 1983. Ghent contains private homes built from 1913 to World War II. The area encompasses Spencer Avenue, Rhem Avenue, and parts of Park Avenue. It began as a trolley car suburb in the days when working folks wanted homes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown New Bern. Having grown up in Ghent, I know this area quite well.

Today, Spencer Avenue, the main street in Ghent, is considered one of the landmark streets in New Bern, with old-fashioned street lamps positioned along a landscaped median separating two lanes of traffic. In the 1920s and 1930s, a trolley car ran where the median is now located, taking passengers from one end of town to the other. Wouldn't it be great to see the trolley be brought back to life. Large flowering fruit trees are breathtakingly beautiful in the springtime.

Ghent is an energetic, people-oriented neighborhood where residents take to the sidewalks whenever weather permits, which is quite often in New Bern. In the 1960's and 1970's many families left the Ghent area and moved out to the suburbs. As a result the neighborhood started to decline and many homes in Ghent fell into disrepair.

In recent years Ghent has become a fashionable neighborhood for homeowners looking for a convenient location and larger classic homes. Bungalow and cottage-style homes with neat lawns make up a large part of the Ghent neighborhood. Some homes feature antebellum column fronts, and many have open or screened porches for inviting warm summer evenings.

Ghent is close to one of the area's nicest amenities, the new YMCA, which includes a Jr. Olympic-sized swimming pool, a gymnasium, weight rooms a racquetball court and much more. They also offers day care and supervised exercise classes. Gent is also fortunate to be situated between Fort Totten Park, which has a baseball field with bleachers, swings and other park equipment for children, and the larger Lawson Creek Park, a popular fishing spot with nature trails, boat launches, soccer fields, and picnic tables. Both parks are within walking distance of Ghent.

Halloween is a special treat for those living in Ghent. Talk about fun. I think half the folks in New Bern take their kids trick or treating at Ghent as the wide sidewalks and high porches make trick or treating fun again even for adults.

Homes here are priced from $135,000-$275,000. Some have been modernized but many will require some upgrading. So for the handy man or woman this is a fine place to live. Ask my sister, she loves it there.

The Riverside subdivision offers convenience and affordability

An old-style neighborhood with Timeless Appeal.

Riverside is also on the national register of historic places. Riverside is comprised of National Avenue and the areas east all the way to the Neuse River. Riverside is located only a few blocks from historic downtown New Bern.

Development of the Riverside subdivision began in the late 1890s in response to the growth of the lumber industry in New Bern. At one time the lumber business flourished along the Neuse River in the Riverside area. Logs were floated down the Neuse River from far away to the many lumber mills located in Riverside and other areas in New Bern.

Riverside was originally a mixed-use community of residential buildings and commercial enterprises. People wanted to live close to where they worked. The trolley car in New Bern ran from the end of Spencer Avenue through downtown and then on to the Riverside area.

In the 1960's as many lumber mills closed and ceased to be as economically important in New Bern, many homes in the Riverside area fell into disrepair. The result was a neighborhood in decline where beautifully refurbished homes and rundown buildings stood side-by-side.

Fortunately both the city of New Bern and the Preservation Foundation took measures to restore this once handsome community to its original glory. Many of Riverside's larger homes were built between 1896 and World War II, so there is a pleasant mix of architectural styles in the neighborhood. On National Avenue, high-peaked, two-story Victorian structures with wrap-around porches and plenty of shade trees are situated away from the road.

Cute bungalows abound in the Riverside neighborhood

On the cross streets, perpendicular to National Avenue and the Neuse River, are rows of tidy bungalows such as the homes on the left and below. I really like Riverside and it is fast becoming a turn around success story.

Riverside is a neighborhood that offers convenience and affordable.

Homes along the River Drive waterfront are of an entirely different character. Here you will find pretty brick ranch dwellings on small lots with plenty of trees and meticulous landscaping. Real estate prices vary widely, with some of the older bungalows in the $150,000 up to the $400,000 for those on the Neuse River. For those inclined to get their hands a little dirty on occasion you can find a fixer upper for $50,000 or so.

Give me a call-252 514 9157 if you want to see this classy neighborhood. I am available most any day.


Olde Towne Harbour

Perfect location

Old Town is a popular neighborhood located within minutes to everything

This is one of the nicest mature neighborhoods in the New Bern area. Located between New Bern and Trent Woods, Old Towne is just minutes from the downtown historic district. Old Towne is also convenient to the shopping centers on Highway 17.

 Olde Towne Harbour offers quiet seclusion in a lovely, natural setting. When I was a kid what is now called Old Towne was called J.C. Park, owned by the local Junior Civitans who let area kids use the water access on the Trent River.

In addition to reasonable priced interior homes, Old Towne has homes and condominiums that front the Trent River allowing owners water access and beautiful views. Many of the homes in this subdivision are on the manmade inner harbor that was created when a canal was cut in from the Trent River. These homes also have deep protected water allowing you to keep a large boat in your back yard. From your back door you can boat to downtown New Bern in a matter of a few minutes.

Homes prices range from $250,000 for an interior home to $800,000 for one of the larger homes located on the canal or harbor. As with many of the other communities in New Bern this subdivision appeals to working professionals as well as retirees.

Trent Woods


New Bern NC Neighborhoods

This mature neighborhood is one of New Bern's most desirable locations. It is only a few minutes away from shopping, hospital, Doctors, airport and most of the amenities offered in the New Bern area.

Trent Wood's is now an incorporated town and has its own Police Force. Although only a few miles from historic downtown New Bern, Trent Woods was once considered to be out in the country and other than a few scattered homes it consisted mostly of small farms. Now its assorted neighborhoods contain some of the ritziest homes in New Bern. Trent Woods is served by two Elementary Schools and both are considered among the districts best.

Trent Wood's is comprised of numerous neighborhoods that have developed since the 1960's. Manning Park, Holly Hills, Chelsea, Trent Shores and Ward Point are on the Trent River. Others, such Creeks Ends and Edgewood, are along Wilson's Creek. The three Haywood Creek subdivisions line the banks of Haywood's Creek.

Most of the homes in Trent Woods were built in the late 60's,70's, and 80's and it is not unusual to do some upgrades if you buy an older home. Because it is so convenient and scenic most folks don't mind. Lots are mostly spacious, wooded and impeccably landscaped, often with towering trees draped in Spanish moss. If you drive through Trent Woods in the spring, you'll find a stunning display of flowering trees and shrubs.

In addition to the New Bern Golf and Country Club the area boasts other amenities such as the Eastern Carolina Yacht Club. The picture below shows me lining up a putt on the 18th hole of NBGCC. Something obviously is giving me a good laugh. In the background is East Carolina Yacht Club.

One of New Bern's finest neighborhoods.

Real estate prices in Trent Woods start around $200,000. Waterfront houses range from $500,000 for creek-front properties to well in excess of $1 million for waterfront.

Fairfield Harbour


Fairfield Harbour from the air

This expansive, gated community is located across the Neuse River about 15 minutes from downtown New Bern. Fairfield Harbour is a 3,000-acre resort development featuring lots of waterfront properties, golf course, 4 marina's and wide variety of interior homes.

New Bern waterfront neighborhood

Northwest Creek flows through the West side of Fairfield Harbour allowing for the option of having a home or home site on a natural waterway. Northwest Creek is deep enough for larger boats and is a naturally protected harbour. The Fairfield Harbour canal system provides hundreds of homes and home sites with protected deep water access to the mighty Neuse River. Sailors and motor boaters love this neighborhood because of its easy access to the Neuse River and the Intra-coastal Waterway. Fairfield Harbour has 4 marinas with over 450 slips, one indoor and two outdoor pools, nine tennis courts, four of which are lighted.

Golfers also find Fairfield Harbour an attractive place to call home. The Harbor Pointe golf course is both challenging and fun. Tennis, walking, fishing, bicycling are other ways to have fun and stay in shape. Additionally for around $300 a year you can join the health club that offers 1 indoor pool and 1 outdoor pool along with fitness equipment.

Fairfield Harbour is unusual in that it is a combination of mostly single-family homes, with some condominiums, townhouses and timeshare condos added for good measure. In general, home prices start around $160,000 and go up to about $550,000, depending upon proximity to the water. Home sites are among the most reasonable in the area and many folks choose to buy a lot and build their own home.

Condominiums and townhouses at Fairfield Harbour are arranged around small man-made lakes within the community. Winding paths and roads connect all locations, and the combination of layout and landscaping gives a feeling of privacy.

To me what makes Fairfield Harbour such a great neighborhood to live in is the incredible amount of clubs and organizations within the community. The huge Stripper was caught about 1/2 mile from FFH. As you can imagine FFH has a very active fishing club. The Harbour's combination of year-round residents and vacationers requires that a wide variety of activities be readily available. Established community activities are too numerous to list but include such interests as men's and women's golf associations, a chorus, quilting, weaving, swimnastics, gardening, drama, book, bridge, RV, tennis and yacht clubs. Fairfield Harbour residents contribute more than any other community to the non profit organizations in the New Bern area.

Call the Fairfield Harbour expert, The Tyson Group-252 514 9157 or additional information. My uncle was the original developer of Fairfield Harbour over 35 years ago and I have been selling homes here since 1978. For more information on FFH click the link below.

Forest Hills

Elegance you can afford


My favorite neighborhood

Forest Hills is an enchanted area, at least in my opinion. But perhaps I am more than a little prejudice. My folks built the second house in Forest Hills in the early 60's. At that time Forest Hills was not even in New Bern's city limits. It was great place to grow up, plenty of space for a little boy, his dog, and his BB gun.

Forest Hills is located just a few blocks from Craven Regional Hospital and is arguably as convenient a location as neighborhood in New Bern. 

Here you will find homes mostly built from the early 60's to the early 1970's. The lots are larger, around 1/2 acre, and the mature yards explode in breathtaking views during the spring as the azaleas and dogwoods show their incredible, albeit short lived, splendor. There are quite a few pecan trees in Forest Hills and as a kid I would get $1 for a large paper grocery bag full. Seemed like a lot of money back then.

You will find exceptional, in my opinion, real estate values here. Often you can get 2000-2200 heated square feet for under $200,000. Yes the homes are older, but many have been updated.

Please let me show you this subdivision, I enjoy just riding through Forest Hills and I bet you will as well.

Trent Park was developed to accommodate the hundreds of servicemen returning home after WW2. All of the homes were 2 or 3 bedroom and 1 bath, just the basic home was all they needed. I remember our house did not have air condition at the time we lived there.

Life was simple in those days. We would play outside all day long. It did not take much to keep kids occupied in those days. Very few families has TV's and those that did there were only 2 channels to choose from.

Kids playing in a 50's neighborhood

Give kids a bike, baseball, football, or basketball and they were out of moms hair for the rest of the day. In those days pretty much everything a kid needed was within bike driving range and believe me we put some miles on a bike.

Pay off your loan quicker. Check out this calculator

Here's how it works: You input your original mortgage balance, the original term and interest rate. Then figure out how many month's of payments you've already made. Finally, decide how soon you'd like to have your mortgage paid off. For example, a couple in their 40's may decide that they'd like to pay off the 30-year loan they took out last year in 20 years. They input the particulars of their current loan, put in a new term of 20 years, and the Early Payoff Calculator determines how much extra they need to pay each month to make that happen.
