Description

Fascinating. What an apt word! What a city! What a house! Over the last 224 years, there have been been several additions to this unique Federal-period home which, historically, displays extensively remodeled interiors that retain only a few of this period's elements such as six-panel doors and two-part surrounds. The craftsmanship and details in this home are fascinating, from the various moldings, the wood flooring, the door hardware, the multiple fireplaces, and to the modern updates introduced through the years. Some surprising features of this late eighteenth/early nineteenth century home is that all four bedrooms are ensuite, every bedroom has a closet, there is a bedroom/bath on the 1st floor, a powder room for guests also on the 1st floor, the kitchen has a walk-in pantry, and there is parking off-street! The most recent and significant updates are as follows: new HVAC units (8/23); lower roof surfaces scraped and resealed (10/23); newly painted 3rd floor apartment interior (10/23); upstairs Master Bedroom zero entry tiled shower ('22); and new comfort height toilets throughout ('21). See the seller-provided list of ''Repairs and Improvements to 501 New St.'' for more information. As you walk into this living piece of history and take in the experiences that are so characteristic of homes this age - the indelible smell of old growth wood, the wide center hallway, the out-of-plumb this and the uneven that, impressive fireplace mantels, the Colonial Revival staircase - it's hard to ignore the modern conveniences throughout such as the 2nd floor laundry room, upgraded fireplaces/HVAC furnace/major appliances to natural gas (sans the dual fuel stove), the butcher block and granite island countertop features in the kitchen, and the built-in Dining Room bookcase and the built-in coatrack and drawer unit at the rear door. A nice bonus with this property entails a 3rd floor apartment complete with partial kitchen area, living room space, bathroom, andbedroom (house is not described as a three story because this apartment space does not meet the definition of "heated living area" given the 7' height requirement). Since this apartment has a separate entrance on the outside, it would be a perfect candidate for a cozy Airbnb! The Stanly-Bishop House, according to "The Historic Architecture of New Bern and Craven County" book states the earliest records indicate construction began as early as 1799; was purchased in 1815 by one of New Bern's most prominent free blacks, John Carruthers Stanly; and also was purchased by George Bishop in 1875, the contractor selected to manage the rebuilding of Christ Church after its destructive fire of 1871. Read more of this home's history for other fascinating facts! From Tryon Palace, to the Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola, to ALL of our other fascinating firsts attributed to New Bern, The Stanly-Bishop House is a significant historical treasure that can be YOURS, today!
