    River Station-New Bern’s Newest Historic District Development

    Considered one of New Bern’s most desired locations, River Station is now offering a limited number of lots and homes.  For nearly three hundred years, New Bern, North Carolina has been a mariner’s dream. Easy access down the Neuse River to the Intracoastal Waterway and out to the Atlantic Ocean and beyond, has kept this a favorite port o’ call along the east coast.  Stately homes have proudly stood along the shores of the twin rivers, the Neuse and the Trent, for centuries.  And now, that tradition will continue with a near-seamless development along the Neuse’s historic waterfront with a number of custom homes built by River Station’s developers.  River Station is designed to blend seamlessly with the 18th-century homes along the waterfront.  The result will be a new neighborhood with homes nearly indistinguishable from the nationally registered historic homes next door.  River Station will meld historical design with casual comfortable elegance and present-day design features.
