The Victorian era of the United States and the French Second Empire architectural style, defined by a magnificent mansard roof, are distinctions often reserved for historic homes and 108 Fairview Avenue is certainly no exception. Built in the 1890s, the home is situated within the West Bergen-East Lincoln Park Historic District — Jersey City’s fifth and only historic district beyond Downtown — and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. And beyond these esteemed designations, 108 Fairview Avenue is a grand home in immaculate condition.
Extensive grounds and a wraparound porch with classical columns offer a welcoming approach to the multi-family property which is set back from the street to stately effect. 108 Fairview Avenue is comprised of a spacious duplex, a second-floor one-bedroom unit that could be converted to two, and a charming third-floor one-bedroom apartment. However, there is also the flexibility to convert the approximately 3,500-square-foot home into a large one-family.
The duplex spans the main level with a parlor, open eat-in kitchen, large bedroom, and full bath, and the lower level, featuring two bedrooms and a full bath. The main level offers an open floor plan with great light and air and modern amenities alongside old-world details.
Stunning stained glass in the foyer, plaster medallions throughout, and a beautiful parlor bay window mix with the stainless steel appliances and subway tile in the kitchen, while the bedroom which could easily be converted into another living space is truly the architectural heart of the home with original oak hardwood floors and inlaid detail, a wood-burning fireplace fitted for gas, and decorative radiators.
Original details stand out across the whole home: The second-floor one-bedroom unit (currently rented for $1,500/m) features an original marble fireplace mantel and the third-floor one-bedroom apartment (currently rented for $1,650/m) charms with exposed brick and the angles formed by the mansard roof and sweet dormer windows.
108 Fairview Avenue sits on an oversized lot measuring 50′ X 132′ which not only accommodates the lovely front and back yards but also the four-car garage — an extremely rare urban amenity and endlessly useful space.
The West Bergen-East Lincoln Park Historic District is also conveniently located just one mile from Journal Square and just blocks from its namesake park — the crown jewel of the Hudson County park system complete with tennis courts, a running track, handball courts, walking paths, and a nine-hole golf course. NJ Transit buses and Citi Bike are easily accessible as well.
