Wow, if walls could talk! A rare opportunity to own the Forbes House ca. 1760-1770. One of New Bern's most significant early dwellings on the road leading to the Palace and into downtown. The large cedar tree graces the back courtyard with a 2 car garage and off street parking for several vehicles. The house has a lovely large, traditional formal living and dining room, a basement recreation room with it's original cooking fireplace and a first floor bedroom and bath closely accessible to the kitchen and family room. The 2nd and 3rd bedroom floors feel like hidden secret rooms accessed from a second front door entrance that leads up a cozy side staircase. This entrance is the now attached Forbes cottage. The Forbes cottage is probably one of the oldest structures in New Bern. There is also a second floor master with lots of closets and a private bath that can be reached from the main house foyer. A real treat is the 3rd story deck similar to a widows walk that provides amazing views and a great spot to view Palace happenings. The original trims and floors throughout the main house are highlighted by the intact period fireplace mantles and colonial doors with hardware. An extra bonus...On the other side of the driveway is the 721 Pollock St. structure currently a rental property. A charming property that has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 bath with a small fenced courtyard. Both properties contribute greatly to old New Bern and grace the lively street of Pollock with B&B's, brewery's' and a wine shop. A short stroll to the downtown marina, banking, restaurants and shopping. A home for all ages. Wonderful options available as either commercial or single family residential use. Live work is the wave of the future. Check out the 3d Virtual Walk Through!
