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.
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.
Neuse and Trent Rivers converge downtown, creating a picturesque
scenery of boats, fowl, and lazy fishermen.
Stroll along the river walk and admire some of the
beautiful Hatteras Yachts which are made right here in New Bern, NC.

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
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
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
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
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

Homes of Distinction in a beautiful Southern setting
This distinguished neighborhood lies one block north of the Ghent
Homes here are generally large and well-placed on spacious,
beautifully landscaped lots. Named after the founder of New Bern, DeGraffenreid was once New Bern's most
prestigious subdivision to live and a quick drive through
will explain why. Gorgeous dogwoods and
azaleas abound throughout the area and create a spectacular

neighborhood walks and interaction with neighbors and streets carry names such as Queen Ann Lane
and Lucerne Way. Many of the more notable residences are stately two-story brick dwellings with dignified Federal features. Brick

homes in this classy neighborhood.
with Ghent, DeGraffenried is within walking distance of Fort Totten

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
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.
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.
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.
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.

neighborhood. I am available most any day.
Olde Towne Harbour
This is one of the nicest mature neighborhoods in the New Bern
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.
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.
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.
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.
The picturesque Haywood Creek, shown above, runs along the backside of the 3 neighborhoods
in the Haywood Creek area. Haywood Creek is not deep but will
accommodate smaller boats.
The Haywood creek area is comprised of 3
neighborhoods with homes that sell from $175,000-$600,000.
Some of the homes in this area are in the city of New Bern
and others are in Trent Woods.
Within walking distance are Ben Quinn
Elementary School and New Bern High School. Also within a
few miles are shopping centers, Craven Community College, and 3
golf courses. Convenient location with some really lovely
A neighborhood with
just about everything!
River Bend lies along the north shore
of the Trent River and is about six
miles from the center of New Bern. Many of the home sites here have water frontage and private boat slips
and are among the most affordable waterfront homes in the area. For those not on the water there is an
affordable private marina and boat launch in Riverbend that makes
the river accessible to all property owners. For a list of waterfront homes for sale in Riverbend

includes a well-stocked pro shop, a restaurant, an outdoor
swimming pool and four lighted tennis courts. Combine this with a
active tennis club, miles of roads friendly for walking-running, and you have a
little town that offers something for everyone.
A large number of retirees find River Bend attractive however the area also has a
large number of young working families as well. Although
began as a subdivision, River Bend was incorporated in 1980
so it could better serve the residents there. The
town municipal building,
finished in 1986, has a 99-seat meeting hall and is adjacent to a
small park with a children's play area, baseball field and small

reasonable in the area and many folks choose to buy a lot and build their
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
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.

neighborhood well suited for both families with young children and
retirees. Home sites range from an eighth of an acre to more than a full

Elegance you can afford
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
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
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.

convenient subdivision is located just

by the 150,000 acre Croatan National Forest and the enchanting Brices Creek. Brices

country store that carries just about everything under the sun. Here

order a cheeseburger.

subdivisions exist in Brices Creek, including, Snug Harbor, Oakview,
Deer Run, River Trace, Rock Creek, and Hunter's Ridge just to

commute to downtown New Bern and easy access to Highway 70 E. There
are also a number of creek front and riverfront homes in Brice's Creek.

wrong buying a home in this area. Home prices off the water range
from $215,000-$450,000. Creek front homes starts around $400,000. My
wife and I live in this area and are very familiar with the many
