    Description

    This is a rare opportunity to live in one the most admired houses in New Bern, a riverfront city founded in 1710 that was once the capital of Colonial North Carolina. The Garrett House was built in the highly desirable Ghent neighborhood around 1917 by a couple who valued entertaining. From its spacious wraparound front porch, you are received in the atrium entry hall and an open floor plan found only in the grandest Southern homes. Matching parlors feature cut-crystal windowpanes, stately ornamental fireplaces, and Italianate columns that match exterior architectural features. The left parlor opens to an exposed beam grand dining room with its own fireplace with inlaid woodwork. A spacious kitchen includes a French farm sink, Italian marble countertops, a pantry, and modern appliances. A cheery sunroom, full guest bathroom with walk-in shower, and guest room round out the first floor. Take one of two stairways upstairs to find two generous master bedrooms each with their own roomy closet and ornamental fire place. One master bedroom opens into a second-floor bathroom that features an oversized claw foot bathtub and Italian marble countertops. Two smaller rooms and a laundry area are also on the second floor. The house includes a pre-wired storage shed set beside a concrete apron, a porte-cochere, pecan, fig, pomegranate, and magnolia trees, and relics of a century-old outdoor fireplace and carriage house that can be restored, all set on a spacious double lot-plus that is about a third of an acre. Enjoy this friendly, walkable neighborhood a short distance from Lawson Creek Park, Tryon Palace, and Historic Downtown New Bern.This property is being sold ''as is''. Glass art in windows DOES NOT CONVEY.
