For sale: 294 4th Street, Harsimus Cove, Jersey City.

Harsimus Cove is a neighborhood steeped in history, with spacious elegant brownstones dating back to the mid-1800s. Those along “Doctor’s Row” housed Jersey City’s 19th-century medical professionals, who would occupy the upper floors of the home with their families, while servants’ quarters occupied the floor beneath.

Today at 294 4th Street, that history reveals itself as a tempting opportunity to own a unique four-story, two-family brownstone home comprised of an owner’s triplex with beautifully preserved period details and cutting-edge home automation technology, and a garden-level rental apartment that last leased for $2,000 per month.

The five-bedroom, three-bath residence sits on a wide 20.93’x100’ lot that includes a specimen magnolia tree and a self-irrigating garden with a coveted southern exposure in the front of the house. In the back, there’s a private two-car garage and a courtyard garden draped in wisteria vines.

Historic details of the home include fireplace mantels clad in sleek black marble, plaster crown molding and medallions, elegant French doors, and the original handmade oak parquet floors. A remarkable windowed stairwell still has the original lincrusta wall covering, along with a curved mahogany banister. Another stairwell evokes history with exposed brick.

Perhaps unexpected in a home from this era are its modern features, like separate heating zones for each floor, plus smart home technology for security, fire alarms, and carbon monoxide detection.

This place was made for entertaining, with a grand foyer under 10-foot high ceilings flanked by dual parlor rooms. Up a level, you’ll find a roomy eat-in kitchen and pantry along with a large bathroom with a soapstone fireplace, original plaster archway, and full en-suite bath. There are three more bedrooms on the top floor.
