104 ½ Lafayette Street is a portal to Jersey City’s 19th-century past — the historic two-family row house still boasts its original tin facade and is just minutes from lovely Lafayette Park. A stunning owner’s residence spans three floors and a garden-level studio unit overlooks a private patio and offers a solid additional income opportunity. Perfectly located in the heart of Bergen-Lafayette, this one-of-a-kind vintage home is a rare and highly desired find.
Built in 1895, as advertised in The Evening Journal in September of that year, 104 ½ was part of brand new Breadalbane Terrace. Marketed then as modern with modern improvements in a pretty locality, the same can be said today. The original gorgeous hardwood floors and towering 9.5-foot ceilings, as well as the grand foyer and beautiful bay window, are classic 19th century, but the rest is a contemporary dream.
The newly renovated chef’s kitchen features ample white cabinetry, elegantly marbled Quartz countertops, and eye-catching custom tilework from counter to ceiling. Fully outfitted with sleek stainless steel appliances, including a Viking gas cooktop, wall oven, and range, the eat-in kitchen also leads to a sweet Juliet balcony.
104 ½ Lafayette Street features four bedrooms across the home’s sprawling three stories. The primary bedroom is beautifully appointed with custom built-in bookshelves and a cozy window bench seat that doubles as a picturesque reading nook and additional storage.
Also on the second floor alongside the primary bedroom and full bath is a bonus room with limitless possibilities: home office, den, nursery, fabulous walk-in closet, or room to expand the full bath into a spectacular spa-like retreat.
Two more bedrooms are on the sunny third story and a skylight lights the stairway from the top floor to the parlor.
Mini-split A/C units on every floor, in-home laundry, and a full unfinished basement with separate utilities round out the modern perks.
The garden-level studio apartment has direct access to the charming patio and is an ideal rental or Airbnb.
In 1895, after the construction of these modern row homes called Breadalbane Terrace, it was reported that real estate men estimated property in the neighborhood had increased by 40 percent and residents were very proud of the new blocks. Bergen-Lafayette has experienced yet another renaissance and 104 ½ Lafayette Street is in the middle of it all. Residents enjoy proximity to some of Jersey City’s favorite destinations including Liberty State Park, Liberty Science Center, local bars and restaurants, Corgi Distillery, and 902 Brewing Co.
The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail also makes getting to DTJC and connections to the PATH and ferry easy. 104 ½ Lafayette Street is asking $824,900.
