On the Market in Bayonne: A 12-room Boarding House, Factory Turned Single-family, and a Retro-renovation


homes-for-sale-bayonne-new-jersey-featuredBayonne, Jersey City’s southern neighbor, doesn’t get nearly the attention it deserves. From its diverse housing stock to its nearly 3.5 mile-long Broadway retail corridor, the city offers a small town feel with the benefits of being a quick train ride from the big city.

Speaking of its diverse housing stock, the city has enclaves of new construction, Victorian mansions, and factories retrofitted as lofts. To illustrate this diversity, we rounded up three of Bayonne’s more unique properties.

Up first is a three bedroom colonial on a large corner lot. The listing indicates the home was built in 1900, but a look through the photos tells us it underwent a major renovation in the late 70’s or early 80’s. Retro highlights include a gold metal ceiling in the kitchen, dome track lighting in the living room, and cathedral wood plank ceilings in one of the bathrooms.

Here’s a great opportunity for the right investor. Bayonne’s last remaining rooming house is for sale. The stately 3,800 square foot Victorian is configured with an owners apartment and 12 boarding rooms, that according to the listing agent are a ‘big income producer’.

234-236-avenue-a-bayonne-njIt also boasts numerous original features like an intricate wood carved staircase that unfortunately has been painted over, large stained glass windows, and multiple marble fireplaces.
