116 Naval Stores Drive Newport, NC 28570
This is a dream come true. A home that has been meticulously crafted to meet the most exacting of standards yet unique and comfortable in both style and station; 116 Naval Stores Drive in Newport, NC has all of these qualities and attributes and then some. Come see the home everyone is talking about!
116 Naval Stores Drive is nestled within a well planned residential neighborhood, a community within itself. But just a few steps away is the 160,000 acre Croatan National Forest. This combines all of the benefits of superior family dwellings mixed with the nature and beauty of a federally protected forest. This almost sounds like the beginning of a Walt Disney story!
Maybe it is…….
116 Naval Stores Drive is a 3 bedroom and 2 and ½ bathroom home plus a Bonus FROG that adds to living and sleeping space! Total heated square footage is approximately 2,100. This large home is sited on 0.382 of an acre.
Some of the benefits of this home include peace, serenity and privacy. There isn’t too much noise other than owls, deer, doves and squirrels running up and down trees coming from the Croatan National Forest. But the home is also on a cul-de-sac making traffic nearly non-existent.
The design features of this home takes advantage of space, flow and aesthetic qualities that truly sets this home apart from all the rest.
Outside is an invisible in-ground fence system to keep the family pet within the boundaries of home and yet to unsightly fence to degrade the homes appearance.
There is an attached two car garage with plenty of paved driveway for big cars and trucks to drive on. Above the garage is a bonus room called FROG that you’ve just got to see. A FROG is a Finished Room Over the Garage. This is a spacious room with a closet, heat and air and shared upstairs bathroom. This room can be used for anything including office, bedroom, work-out room, you name it! (By the way, it has not been counted as a bedroom in the listing!)
The back yard has a large step up shed with its own carport for storing trailers, tractors and what not. Attached to the back of the house is a large wooden deck perfect for afternoon drinks or evening cookouts.
The front of the house has three dormers on top with a classic southern front porch perfect for sitting and rocking in the cool of the shade. There has been a bit of intelligent design with the landscaping around the porch with visual appeal and low maintenance in mind.
Inside the house shows the “inner beauty” of this ideal home. Just off the kitchen is a breakfast nook complete with bay windows.
The kitchen is spacious, utilizing the area in a most profound way. The hard surfaced counter tops reach and wrap into an “L” shape design creating a lunch counter/bar area. There is plenty of counter space utilizing dark wood grains that really accent the stainless steel appliances. Dishwasher, glass flat top stove, microwave and refrigerator are all at hand ready for the gourmet cook or the gourmand palate. OK, and for the hot dog and hamburger crowd too!
Just on the other side of the kitchen and the lunch counter/kitchen bar is the dining area. This portion of the home is the natural extension from the kitchen. It is large enough to seat and serve 8 people (or more) comfortably. It also acts as a go between the kitchen as the floor plan flows from the dining right into the living room.
This area is absolutely a head turner of a room with two story high ceilings, a balcony from the upstairs living quarters, fully carpeted floors and a large screen television area that is inserted in the wall, “stacked” on top of a beautiful working gas fireplace. This is a must see and must visit room!
The master bedroom and its private master bathroom and walk-in closet are all located on the first floor. There is also a half bath downstairs designed for visitors and guests.
Upstairs has 2 bedrooms plus the FROG mentioned earlier that share one full bathroom. The kids can have the upstairs while the parents enjoy the comfort and privacy of downstairs.
Innate, intrinsic, beautiful, functional and comfortable are descriptions as well as feelings that will be conveyed to you when you visit this home.
