Ideal commercial location, the iconic Wade-Meadows House towers three stories over bustling South Front Street. This is a highly visible and traversed location with pedestrians continuously flowing between Union Point Park and Downtown New Bern. Passersby cannot help but engage with the Federal and Greek Revival architecture and the unmistakable Second Empire Mansard roof, punctuated with dormers looking out to the New Bern Convention Center just across the street and the Neuse River. Also highly trafficked, connecting Downtown and Tryon Palace to Hwy 70, South Front Street provides a slow, steady stream of motor traffic for this property. This is a prime location for just about any business--restaurant, office space, residential lease, B&B, etc. The structure itself continues to leave an important footprint on Historical New Bern, designated as 'pivotal' to the community by the National Historic Registry. The high, Flemish-Bond brick facade that reaches to the second-floor wrap-around porch, an iron-crested roofline, the long brick colonnade, all imbue the home and the area with a positive, enduring, and endearing, quality. Inside, step into an Andrew Wyeth painting, as much of the original interior has remained. Hints of original wall stenciling yet to be fully revealed, rope moulding reminiscent of the William Hollister House trims the doorways, oak and original pine flooring abound, fixtures, windowpanes, stair railings, claw-foot tub and ornate carved toilet bowl, antique window shutters. Indeed, this is a unique, Historical work-of-art. The property currently leases out eight parking spaces for the neighboring business, there are two full apartments on the second and third floors each, and two unfinished apartments on the ground floor. All were previously leased. At present most of the dwelling will require updating/renovating. The first and third floors are currently occupied.
