For sale: 247 2nd Street #1, Jersey City.

Sometimes your dream home requires you to make compromises. Maybe it’s not in your desired neighborhood, or the fixtures need updating. Not so with 247 Second Street, #1. Located right in the heart of Downtown, this historic duplex comes with all its original grandeur intact — think high ceilings and marble mantles — but it has been modernized in every conceivable way.

Step inside the parlor level of this two-bedroom home and you’ll immediately note its blend of classical character and modern polish. Crown molding extends the length of the formal living room and separate dining room, both of which feature a decorative fireplace with gorgeous marblework.

The home is flawlessly designed for entertaining; behind pocket doors, you’ll encounter an enormous gourmet chef’s kitchen with a six-burner Viking range, double-sized stainless steel refrigerator, wine cooler, and Bosch dishwasher. Cabinetry and counter space go on for days; a butler’s pantry offers still more organizing and storage opportunities.

Along with the outpouring of natural light streaming from huge antique windows, pendant lights illuminate an amply sized breakfast bar, and there’s plenty of room for a family kitchen table that’s sure to become the hub of the home.

Follow the polished hardwood floors to the steps that take you to the garden level, where you’ll find a massive bedroom supplied with two California-style closets and an ensuite bathroom. An additional room can be used as a study or second bedroom; it has a stunning decorative fireplace with rustic brickwork, its own ensuite bathroom, and a space-maximizing built-in Murphy bed.
