The Duane House — one of Bayonne’s most historic homes — is for sale. The home at 105 West 8th Street was built in 1871 for direct descendants of United States founding father Benjamin Franklin, but the mansion has seen plenty of modern updates since the 19th century, offering every modern amenity and a chance to own a piece of history.
Situated near Bergen Point, Bayonne’s coolest neighborhood, and an easy commute from New York City, the home boasts seven bedrooms and five bathrooms across 4,564 square feet. The expansive mansion has everything and is perfect for a large family and/or any kind of work-from-home scenario.
Exquisite finishes include hardwood floors, extra-high ceilings, crown molding, wainscoting, and recessed lighting throughout. The main floor includes a grand double parlor area complete with a fireplace and a modern wet bar.
The elegant chef’s kitchen features ample white upper cabinets and slate blue lowers topped by a marbled stone countertop and backsplash. And a full suite of high-end stainless steel appliances includes a bold red range.
Also on the first floor are one-and-a-half baths and an additional bedroom ideal for any use.
Three massive bedrooms with walk-in closets span the second floor, as well as a marvelous oversized full bath with a large walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, and dual vanity. The laundry room is also located on the second floor.
The third floor is reserved for the magnificent main suite where charming dormer windows add a unique architectural look and feel. The large main bedroom offers endless closets and an additional living area, as well as a renovated full bath. And a bonus adjoining room would be an ideal nursery or home office.
The fully finished walk-out basement includes a second kitchen and full bath and private outdoor space spans the side yard and characteristic front porch, providing endless recreation and entertainment opportunities inside and out. 105 West 8th Street also features a two-car garage.
The Duane House is asking $995,000 and is a rare chance to own a majestic 150-year-old mansion brought fully into the 21st century.
