Property Description

Gracious home on high and dry lot in New Bern's historic district has been carefully updated to maintain its historic charm. It was originally built in 1903 as a frame home. Purchased in 1919 by Thomas Eugene Land as his residence, the home was remodeled to include the addition of brick veneer, the front porch and the porte-cochere. In the 1940's the back of the home was extended on both the first and second floors. Current owners purchased in 2005 and took the home down to its studs, installing new electrical, plumbing, insulation and HVAC systems. Historic windows were maintained and restored, and storm windows were added. A back porch was enclosed to allow for a larger sunroom and a full bath with shower on the first floor. The kitchen was remodeled with custom black walnut cabinetry, granite countertops, tile floors and stainless-steel appliances. Kitchen was extended into a convenient office area with custom cabinetry and wine storage. The original 1903 heart pine floors were refinished and remain in remarkable condition. A brick ramp was added to make home accessible from the rear for elder visitors. Master bath was renovated and a laundry area was added on the 2nd floor near the Master Suite. The property has a two-car garage, workshop and tool shed all with electricity. Home is in an X zone and experienced no flooding during Hurricane Florence. The home is across Metcalf Street from the Tryon Palace grounds, and in walking distance to museums, restaurants and shops of downtown historic New Bern. Catch a glimpse of the Trent River from your front porch where you can listen to concerts from the Palace grounds or watch the fireworks over Lawson Creek Park on the 4th of July. Enjoy the best of the old and the convenience of the new at 210 Metcalf Street in historic downtown New Bern.
