Rarely, if ever, is the quintessential townhouse actually for sale, especially along one of the most sought-after and picturesque blocks in Downtown Jersey City, but the time is now. 670 Jersey Avenue is a five-story, single-family home situated on the corner directly across from historic Hamilton Park. Built in 1886, this spectacular Queen Anne boasts full park views from every room, a private backyard, and elevator access on all five floors.
Original details and a no-expense-spared renovation come together under one roof to grand effect. The facade of intricate red brick is met by a stately stoop with a traditional wrought-iron railing and is the picture of iconic architecture. Inside, original stained glass windows, marble fireplaces, and archways define the 19th-century space.
The home’s five floors total 2,496 square feet and include a splendidly remodeled kitchen and dining room on the first level and an expansive living room with a gas fireplace and lovely window line on the parlor, or second, level. The third level includes two bedrooms and one full bath. And the fourth level, or top floor, houses the master suite plus a fourth bedroom, currently used as an art studio. The finished basement includes laundry and storage and all floors have elevator access.
On the parlor level, stained glass colors the main entrance and Doric columns frame the main sitting area, bright with natural light. The main staircase stands out with ornate wooden banisters against a backdrop of exposed brick.
The renovated kitchen offers a tremendous amount of space for cooking and entertaining with direct access to the professionally landscaped backyard for a light, airy, seamless lifestyle. Top-of-the-line finishes include custom cabinets, granite countertops, and appliances by Wolf and Sub-Zero.
Every bathroom is updated and unique, with designer tiles and fixtures. The master bath wows with a glass-enclosed shower crowned by a skylight.
Substantial upgrades throughout the home include all new Marvin windows, new hardwood floors, two-zone heat/air, whole-house water filtration system, a new water heater plus on-demand hot water for the master bath, and wiring for a home theater and video security system.
Beyond this stunning house is the private backyard, accessed through the kitchen or from the side gate. It will certainly feel like an urban sanctuary with mature trees shading the stone pavers and a trickling waterfall fountain, while a gas grill makes easy work of dinners and get-togethers and the large cedar shed offers additional storage.
670 Jersey Avenue is in the heart of Hamilton Park, surrounded by Jersey City’s best restaurants, markets, shops, and schools. The Park feature’s children’s playgrounds, dog runs, tennis courts, a farmer’s market, and numerous events and the PATH station is a short walk away for an easy commute.
The home is asking $2,299,000.
670 Jersey Avenue will be available to tour beginning September 17. To schedule a private showing, please contact Leda Duif at 917-402-1152 or [email protected].
