A real treasure and a golden opportunity, 90-92 Lord Avenue is for sale in the highly desirable East Bergen Point section of Bayonne. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home, brimming with historical details, boasts a massive backyard and a detached garage.
90-92 Lord Avenue was built in 1891 and enjoys an extra-large lot (56’ x 141’) on a quiet tree-lined street near the waterfront. Charming and recently updated, the home offers every luxury across 2,500 square feet just a 12-minute walk from the 8th Street station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail.
A sun porch spans the front of the house, providing a sunny functional area in between the outdoor front porch and the grand main entrance. Ornate double wood doors lead to an elegant foyer distinguished by a stately staircase and crowned by a sparkling chandelier.
Stunning details throughout include oak and walnut hardwood floors, high ceilings, plaster medallions and moldings, and two fireplace mantels — one in the living room and one in the dining room.
The gorgeous chef’s kitchen features white cabinetry and countertops, a farmer’s sink centered beneath a large window overlooking the backyard, and a graceful marble herringbone backsplash. A full suite of stainless steel appliances and a center island with room for two adds plenty of functionality.
Also on the first floor, a butler’s pantry and a powder room are conveniently off the kitchen and a mudroom leads to the backyard.
The second floor offers three bedrooms, an office, and a full bath, as well as access to the spacious attic. And the master bedroom includes a cheery alcove, perfect for a dressing room, walk-in closet, or a baby’s crib.
The sprawling home continues on the basement level with a half bath, washer/dryer, and enviable upgrades: a new tankless water heater, french drains with a superior sump pump, and a water softener system. The home was also converted from oil to gas in 2017.
And perhaps the most enviable amenity of all, the oversized backyard features a patio of pavers, mature trees, and an expanse of grass with a view to the detached garage (23’ x 20’), which also boasts a large loft space.
90-92 Lord Avenue is within walking distance of restaurants, schools, the waterfront park, tennis courts, grocery stores, and the 8th Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail with connections to the PATH train and NY Waterway ferry.
90-92 Lord Avenue, a dream home with an abundance of character and space is asking $650,000.
Do not miss the Open House this weekend, June 5th and 6th, from 12-3 p.m. (Note: The address is 90-92 Lord Ave in the tax records but it has 96 on the home.)
