Realtor Blurb:
The Mortie M. Marks house, a Victorian in the heart of Downtown, is one of the most elegant mansions in New Bern's Historic District. Breathtaking displays of classic architecture, woodwork, and enough southern charm and luxury for any homes magazine you'll find. The large lot offers rich and dreamy gardens you will NEVER forget! This estate boasts a home office retreat, custom cherry shelving, cedar closet, 2 screened porches. Tasteful modern updates, making daily life more enjoyable and easier. 5 working fireplaces make this historic mansion even better. Don't miss a chance to see this one!

My Notes: Absolutely perfect! All the details have been preserved. I know it's not period, but I love the master bathroom. Double newel staircase in the original wood. The fireplace surrounds are INcredible!  NRHP paper here and screencapped below.
