In the early ’60s, a neighborhood with water access was established in the Havelock area. Since having access to the water within Havelock was a rarity, Ketner Heights became a popular place to live. Crystal Lake is located at the back of the neighborhood and has direct access to the Neuse River. A good number of homes are situated around the perimeter of the neighborhood on navigable canals that lead to the river. The home sites here are approximately .5 acres and up, making this another popular reason to live in this neighborhood. The majority of the homes are brick with three bedrooms. Recently, several undeveloped lots have had new homes built on them. Throughout the neighborhood, custom homes owned by long term residents have been built. Ketner Height's monthly home expenses are less than in the city limits because this area has not been annexed and is considered an extraterritorial portion of Havelock. There are no city taxes here, water is provided by Craven County and the homes have septic systems. Power is provided by Progress Energy. This neighborhood is quiet and relaxed drawing in all types of families from young couples with small children to retired people. The size and the price of the homes make this a great area for first time home buyers. There are a few duplex units here owned by investors that have a long-standing rental history. Ketner Heights is located close to the center of Havelock so that puts you close to grocery stores and all other shopping amenities as well as banks, post office, and medical facilities. The schools for this area are Braden A Graham Elementary, Tucker Creek Middle, and Havelock High School. If you work or want to visit the fun areas of New Bern or Morehead City you are only about a 20-minute drive away and you are only minutes away from the gates of MCAS Cherry Point. The beaches of Atlantic Beach are also 20 minutes away, just across the high rise bridge in Morehead City. New Bern and Morehead City do have a hospital as well and fun waterfronts and water activities.
