This brand new home, completed March 2023, perfectly blends modern and timeless. The floorplan is one of our favorites for sure. 25' ABOVE sea level means no flooding and no required flood insurance. The Durham has a spacious living/dining/kitchen combination with 3 bedrooms on the right side of the home all with HUGE walk-in closets. The primary walk-in closet even connects to laundry room, how convenient! Trayed ceilings in the dining and primary bedrooms add to the charm. The kitchen is a dream with GE Profile appliances, Morel shaker cabinetry, sugar quartz counters, and oversized white backsplash tile. Engineered hardwood floors are throughout the living spaces and owner's suite. The living area has a gas, shiplapped fireplace flanked with built-ins and a mantle that matches the wood floors. Your screened in porch is tucked in off of the great room, very private. Upstairs is the ultimate flex room and a crazy amount of walk-in storage. Fixtures and hardware throughout are matte black. The lighting is Kichler and the faucets are Moen. Outside you'll find Monteray Taupe James Hardie color-plus siding in both lap siding board and batten patterns. Landscaped yard, concrete driveway and a 2 car garage. The backyard leads you to the newly constructed Pintail Lake with a beach and dock. Also close by is the riverfront beach, Mill Creek day-docks and boat ramp. Take your golf cart across the boardwalk at the end of Brightleaf Drive to the Outfitter's Center, clubhouse, pool, sport courts, parks, trails, playground and rental cottages. Arlington Place is on the Neuse River, between the coastal towns of New Bern and Oriental. The property is bordered by Mill Creek so boating access is very easy. Head up river and you'll be in historic downtown New Bern in just 30 minutes. The charming village of Oriental is also a 30 min boat ride or 15 min by car. Coastal living without the fear of flooding and super fast wi-fi, you just found your unicorn!
