Southern tranquillity! A more settled and beautiful location could not be created for this charming residence. Shaded by magnificent pecans and a stately magnolia, surrounded by camellias, azaleas and blueberries, you are invited to stroll the lush grounds. The cottage is a historical gem, with a new metal roof and enough updates to enjoy modern living, yet with enough of the original elements to appreciate the timeless appeal! Located close to Grantsboro, an easy commute to New Bern. The residence has a welcoming front porch and is designed with a country kitchen opening to the family/dining area (with woodstove insert) and living room. There are two cozy bedrooms and two full baths on the first floor +a huge pantry and a laundry/mud room. Upstairs are two rooms which had been used as bedrooms in the past, but function very well as a suite. Each of the upstairs rooms is heated/cooled by a window unit. The downstairs area is ducted for a heat pump, which is not functioning and requires repair or replacement. Outside is a gardener’s paradise of opportunity with a large area for potential vegetable cultivation, a grove of blueberry bushes and a cold-frame for getting a headstart on your spring planting! A detached two-car,24′ x 28′ garage features a workshop area, a storage room and a 11’6” x 24′ shelter for implements and firewood. The woodlands behind the yard area invite exploration and the circular driveway makes access a snap! This property is unrestricted by deed, subdividable and ready for your imagination! This is a journey to the comfortable past as well as an invitation to become your future homeplace!
