New Bern Waterfront Resort Home for Sale
7152 Windward Drive, New Bern, North Carolina 28560
New Bern sits on North Carolina's mid-coast and is the site of this attractive waterfront condominium for sale. The home has three bedrooms, two baths, 1,344 square feet, was built in 1987 and has no neighbors on three sides. It is within a lovely, gated 2,400-acre residential resort called Fairfield Harbour, and the asking price is $190,000.
The home has vinyl siding and is a first floor unit, but there are stairs to the front and back doors because the residence sits atop brick columns and wood posts (the property was raised after Hurricane Florence in 2018, so the flooring, kitchen cabinets, appliances, windows and HVAC system are all new). There are two wooden decks, one on the side and one at the rear.
The interior has white/neutral paint with dark blond vinyl plank flooring. The kitchen has all white appliances, designer fixures and a large window. A nice stone fireplace sits in a corner of the living room. Each of the bedrooms has a ceiling fan, and the baths boast granite countertops. The washer and dryer share a closet with the hot water heater.
Best of all, the living room has tall windows that look through to a glassed-in deck that overlooks a lake formed by the Neuse River, as well as neighboring homes. The kitchen window also overlooks the water.
Across the Neuse River from New Bern, Fairfield Harbour is surrounded by water and wilderness and is reachable via one road. Amenities include a full service marina, a golf course, a restaurant, a swimming pool and a recreation center.
The HOA fee is $633 per month.

The Tar Heel State was one of the first to instruct its Continental Congress delegates to vote for independence from British rule. After the Revolutionary War, it entered the Union on November 21, 1789 and started developing an extensive slave plantation system. It became a major exporter of cotton and tobacco and was one of 11 states to secede from the Union, leading to the American Civil War.
The state is bordered by South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, and the Atlantic ocean. Its geographic regions range from the barrier islands and low plains of the eastern Atlantic coast to the mountainous regions of the west. The rolling hills and waterfalls of the Piedmont lie in between. Because of a wide variance in altitudes, North Carolina's climate can be hard to predict. Winters, especially on the coast, can be warm and mild.
The state has 17 major river basins and is rich in hydroelectric power. Tobacco, sweet potatoes, hogs, trout, and turkeys are a few of its agricultural products. The arts and culture industry has become an economic driver. It supports more than 43,000 jobs and generates almost $120 million in state and local revenue.
North Carolina is the home of several firsts. Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run in Fayetteville. The Wright brothers launched the first manned, self-propelled airplane from a cliff near Kitty Hawk. Pepsi was invented and first served in New Bern. Vernon Rudolph first sold Krispy Kreme doughnuts in Winston-Salem.
Eastern sections of the state were heavily flooded by Hurricane Florence in September, 2018.
