Architecture and design lovers, take note: You may have just met your new home. Rising to more than triple-height, 299 Pavonia Avenue, Unit #3-1 is a feast for the eyes on so many levels, literally.
The moment you enter the massive, 3,500-square-foot space within the unique (and coveted) Wells Fargo Lofts, your gaze is drawn upward to jaw-dropping 45’ ceilings, framed by gorgeously rustic original beams. (Built in 1890 to house carriages and horses for the Wells Fargo Stagecoach Company, the unique structure was converted to condominiums in 1985.) Skylights illuminate the multi-level, open-concept floor plan with lots of natural light, while stylized pendants by the Bouroullec brothers and Marcel Wanders’s “Skygarden,” plus many recessed fixtures suffuse the home with even more light and warmth.
In the kitchen, with a concrete tile floor featured in the New York Times, you’ll find a space fit for a master chef. Rift-sawn oak cabinets open to reveal deep storage shelves and drawers made of maple. Imagine an indoor herb garden planted on a center island, or leave the space wide open for flawless kitchen logistics. The sleek ebonized custom oak pantry wall houses a Sub-Zero refrigerator; a Wolf range and Miele dishwasher complete the luxe arrangement. An extra-wide breakfast bar works perfectly for light, casual meals, providing generous storage in cabinets nestled beneath the Caesarstone counters. The space flows through to the dining area for a more elegant setting.
Step into the light-drenched living area — its oversized windows and raised floor enhance the sweeping views of the New York City skyline, including the World Trade Center. A wall of exposed brick exudes urban appeal, while still more clean white gallery space awaits your personal art collection.
Ascend the custom-designed walnut-and-steel staircase with built-in shelving for art and artifacts, illuminated with LED puck lights, and you’ll encounter a glass-paneled mezzanine level, complete with an over-sized bookcase and Michael Anastassiades globe sconces. Off the mezzanine, the master bedroom provides additional views of rich exposed brick and dazzling sliding glass paneling, along with a spacious walk-in closet, three additional closets, and ensuite bath. Marble finishes, a floating vanity, and soaking tub create an indulgent spa effect, grounded by cool grey stone tiling.
On the third level, you’ll find two additional private bedrooms and a study with Empire State Building views, plus two extra storage closets, a newly renovated full bath, and stunning wood and brickwork to spare. In addition, you’ll enjoy smart home technology controlling three HVAC zones and blinds, a deeded parking space (another welcome amenity in JC or Hoboken!), and the loveliness of nearby Hamilton Park in full bloom steps away from your front door.
On tree-lined Pavonia Avenue, you’ll find yourself perfectly located to head over to local favorite White Star Bar for amazing Pat Lafrieda burgers & craft cocktails, and then stop at Milk Sugar Love Creamery & Bake Shop, for a scoop of something sweet. Conveniently, the Grove Street and Newport PATH stops are each a short walk away, affording NYC access in minutes.
