Description

Description

'Higgins Downtown Depot' - The gorgeously decorated industrial rail road-themed home is like a travel back in time, but with all of the modern conveniences! Located just one block from the historical downtown New Bern, views of the lake, the large private backyard, active railroad tracks just out front, and only being steps away from shopping, coffee, food, and drinks are big highlights of this home, and that is before you get to experience the front or side porch sitting, roast smores in the smokeless fire pit, play corn hole, and watch the train pass right in front of your home away from home! Yes, the train really does run every day right in front of the house (very slowly and only during waking hours)!! This multi-level home boasts tons of added amenities and extra details (just wait til you see what all is in the kitchen!) as we live up to our company name, A Stay Above The Rest! Full of antiques, photos, and historical family treasures, this home is captivating to say the least, but is also super kid-friendly with tons of toys, books, and movies provided to ensure that all kiddos feel welcome and entertained! 

You will feel like you are in a Hallmark movie while visiting this beautiful town. Don’t let the vintage feel fool you, this home has luxurious linens, amazing amenities, and is very well maintained!! Gather around and enjoy the beautiful open kitchen and dining area, fully equipped with a Ninja Air Fryer (the best!), Ninja Blender, gourmet food processor, Keurig (with a frother for those lattes/ cappuccinos), a coffee maker, our signature Kitchenaid Stand Mixer, plenty of bakeware, dishware, pots and pans, a crockpot, and more! The shotgun-style home offers great spaces to all gather around, but you have the option of closing those original double doors to close off each room. Also downstairs is a study equipped with a desk (with a monitor and Bluetooth keyboard and mouse), seating, and a smart TV with free Netflix! There is also a family room with a gas fireplace, smart TV (free Netflix), and a full dry bar with tons of different drinking glass options, and a mixer set! There is also a full bathroom on the main level and we provide salon quality shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and luxurious white plush towels!

All three bedrooms are very roomy and are located upstairs. The first of two primary bedrooms has a king-sized bed with amazing linens for an amazing night's sleep (plus sound machines/ alarm clocks in every room!), a comfy sitting chair, a romantic non-working fireplace, and a closet. The 2nd primary bedroom also holds a king-sized bed, a computer desk, a vintage non-working fireplace, and a closet. The 3rd bedroom has two twin beds each with a twin-sized trundle and a large rustic dresser plus a very large closet. There is another full bathroom upstairs with a claw foot tub (handheld shower). The onsite laundry area is off the kitchen, easy to use and we even supply a few laundry pods. We also supply plush 5-star quality white towels, black hand towels for make-up removal, extremely comfortable bedding, a few rolls of toilet paper per bathroom, paper towels, trash bags, k-cups, coffee filters, creamer, hot cocoa, spices, and the list goes on (we’ve thought of it all)!

Taking you back outside, you can enjoy the great outdoors in the various shaded seating areas with seating for your whole group. The backyard provides ample space, shade, lighting for nighttime relaxation or fun, a fire pit with seating around, and fun outdoor toys, including ring toss, frisbee, and corn hole. If you prefer a more adventurous vacation - you’re in luck! This home is equipped with four adult bicycles (and bike locks) you may use to explore the town or ride through the nature trails. You have quick access to the Trent and Neuse Rivers, Union Point Park (accessible via walking/ bike trails), and many other attractions around town. You're also less than an hour's drive to Atlantic Beach where you’re able to rent tons of various equipment for water recreation - jet skis, paddleboards, and boats. There are also beautiful creeks, lakes, and sounds that offer boating, fishing, camping, biking, and nature trails. You can even schedule a day or sunset cruise to enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather and lush scenery.

Traveling with small children? We know how difficult that can be! Ask us about our partnership with BabyQuips - the nation's #1 baby equipment rental company. You could rent clean, state-of-the-art gear and have it delivered to you hassle-free!!
