When I first heard about the New Bern Round House, I was intrigued! I had to see it firsthand so I contacted owners Andrea and Gregory Fahy for a tour.
My first impression – Wow!
The vacation home is built at least 15 feet off the ground so it kind of reminded me of a luxury tree house. A broad stairway leads you to this awesome, one of a kind, circular house.
Entering the spacious living room, you are taken aback by the natural sunlight and inviting atmosphere. They have a small library of books, board games, and a relaxing reading area.
The living room extends into the fully equipped large state of the art kitchen area. The kitchen is equipped with all the comforts of home including a vast array of spices, oven, refrigerator, a wood fired stove, and other perks. They also have a grand kitchen island, perfect for entertaining guests.
The New Bern Round House is fully furnished with eco-friendly and comfortable linens! The two bedrooms are inviting and reflect a calming ambiance.
Their quaint bathroom has a beautiful bathtub that I haven’t seen in years. A 20th century claw foot tub. They also have an oversized, two-person walk-in shower.
This luxury vacation home has a full sized energy efficient outdoor salt water spa.
The Neuse River is a block away and this secluded getaway is a perfect place to enjoy the view from the wraparound deck. Take a short walk to the river and catch your supper!
If you don’t want to “go off the grid”, you can enjoy Wi-Fi and two televisions equipped with Netflix.
Although I live in New Bern, I was so impressed with Gregory and Andrea’s unique vacation home; I will be booking a premier getaway to enjoy a relaxing weekend and sitting around their large outdoor fire pit!
