                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Paul and Emily Bray owners, live in attached apartment

                  Why the Owner Chose New Bern:
                  We love this location and views. It is relaxing, but not isolated. We love the birds and the gift of the river. The town of New Bern has a rich history with lots of small town amenities: sports, restuarants, community theater, antiques, and the arts.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The views of the Neuse River from the sun room are wonderful.
