If you’re in the market for a home with a touch of history, mark your calendar for this weekend’s open house at 19 Magnolia Avenue. Dating back to the 1880s, this three-story brick townhome is fully renovated and full of possibilities. The charm starts outside — after all, this is Jersey City’s Hilltop neighborhood, its quiet residential streets lined with trees.

Hilltop is a quaint, historic, and convenient part of town, wedged in between Journal Square (and its essential transit hub) and the Village West section of Downtown Jersey City. 19 Magnolia sits on a block of 19th century row houses, on a wide lot measuring 18.33’ x 90’ including a 600-square-foot private backyard with a deck.

Completely renovated, this home offers 2,200 square feet of living space in a flexible configuration that can double as a single-family triplex or a combination of owner’s duplex and a one-bedroom, one-bath apartment that can be rented out for extra income, or just utilized for its extra space, including a second kitchen and living room.

Don’t miss the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home’s signature feature: a restored two-story bay window, or period details like exposed brick, plaster moldings and medallions, the home’s original staircase, and its original wide plank pine floors. There’s even a working wood-burning fireplace.
