Located on one of Hoboken’s finest blocks, 707 Park Avenue is now on the market after an 18-month-long renovation and the developers’ commitment to impeccable quality and design is seen in every detail of the 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, single-family home. The renovation included an extension in height and depth, adding 2 stories and 20 linear feet. Entering on the ground floor takes you through two nice big rooms with exposed brick, heated floors and access to the backyard. Once in the backyard, you get a glimpse of just how unique this brownstone truly is. The street-facing facade remains classic and was reclad in limestone, but the backside is a wall of gleaming glass and is so unexpectedly modern.
Even more impressively, ascending the brand-new limestone stoop lit by a 19th Century hanging lamp from a church in Paris to the salvaged metal and wood front door, you are ushered past another 19th Century detail. A marble tiled entrance welcomes you onto European white oak floors. The large living/dining area flows right into the open kitchen by Italian designer Scavolini. It’s sleek and minimalist with off white and walnut lacquer cabinets, stone and wood counters, and outfitted with Miele and Sub-Zero appliances. They literally brought sexy back with this kitchen.
From the kitchen, you can walk down the floating staircase and be back in the family room or outside to the landscaped backyard, or you can walk up the main staircase beautifully articulated the full height of the home with a hand-cut, white lattice, woodwork wall. The third floor has two large bedrooms–one with a balcony—a full bathroom, and the laundry room with Electrolux appliances. Closet space is ample throughout and the bathrooms are, like the home itself, the perfect combination of classic and modern with white Thasos subway tile, herringbone-patterned tile floors, and large vanities with storage and lighted mirrors.
The fourth floor has one bedroom and bathroom at the front of the house and all the mechanicals are smartly located here as well. At the back of the house is the enormous, double-height, master bedroom complete with a custom plaster wall design and private floating staircase leading to the master bathroom. And it is by far the most breathtaking bathroom. The freestanding bathtub sits perched on the edge of the lofted space and has a direct view of the Empire State Building. The glass-enclosed shower is stunning; so intricately tiled in grey and white marble, it is striking and elegant. The large wood Scavolini vanity with double marble basin sinks and multi-paneled mirrors provide a little separation from the staircase and attached to the bathroom is a large, custom, walk-in closet.
Just beyond the master en suite, at the front of the house, is the fifth and final bedroom, which is self-sufficient with a full bathroom, kitchenette, and lovely dormer windows. From the fifth floor, you can also access the roof deck with a clear view to the Empire State Building and beyond. And it probably goes without saying this is a smart home with voice control, high-efficiency HVAC, triple-glazed windows, and well insulated with high-efficiency spray foam.
The construction of this brownstone was a labor of love for the developers from the outset and they have raised the bar in Hoboken and beyond. 707 Park Avenue is a must see.
