209 Change Street, in the heart of the New Bern Historic District, was built in the early 1800s but has been totally updated to 2020 standards. From the crawl space to the 3rd floor, the house is like new. Beautiful original details that have been carefully kept and restored include a grand arch and handsome stairway in the front hall; a covered porch; 2 unique fireplaces; and original decorative woodwork in the hall, dining room, and living room. The renovated kitchen includes fabulous reclaimed wood countertops, new appliances including a beverage fridge, a serving bar, and a old hutch that has been in the house for years. The kitchen is welcoming, spacious, and inviting. All you need to add are friends and some bar stools. The 1st floor bedroom with a full bath can also double as an office. The 2nd floor has 2 original oversized bedrooms with fireplaces that are plumbed for gas logs, a small 3rd bedroom, and 2 brand new full baths. Access to the balcony overlooking the yard is in the hall leading to the spectacular 3rd floor. Previously used as an attic, this huge space has been converted into a fantastic family room with a wet bar, and a full bath. Special features include original beams, gorgeous wide plank pine floors, and unusual arched windows overlooking the Historic area.Behind the house are a brick patio, access to the side porch, a private walled garden, and a 100+ year old solid brick storage building. The yard on the right side of the house is large enough for a driveway and a garage. Within walking distance to the Neuse River Park, Lawson Creek Park, and downtown, 209 Change Street is a great place to call home! Enjoy all of the comforts of a new house while appreciating the history and significance of an historic house. See the attachments for a complete list of renovations and improvements.
