139 Mercer Street is a stately townhouse on one of Downtown Jersey City’s most sought-after streets and it is a turn-of-the-century dream home realized and modernized for today. Located in the Van Vorst Park Historic District on an idyllic tree-lined block, 139 Mercer Street is a fully renovated, 20-foot-wide, single family, featuring three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and a full basement across four floors of living space, as well as an outdoor deck and landscaped private garden.
Absolutely stunning from the street, the home’s red brick facade was restored and original details abound, including the arched double-door entrance which is just the start of the impeccably preserved interior that dazzles with plaster moldings, archways, a decorative fireplace, and the original curved staircase and handrail plus a skylight.
On the parlor level is a grand living space with soaring 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors with intricate inlaid details, ornate plaster moldings, and direct access to a south-facing outdoor deck for a sanctuary of contemporary entertaining.
The chef’s kitchen is reminiscent of a French country estate, rustic with exposed beams and an arched wooden door leading to the garden outside. Also spacious and state-of-the-art, the kitchen is equipped with Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, a wine refrigerator, and a large island. Charming Quaker Craft cabinetry contrasts well with the sleek quartz countertops and dark Brazilian slate floors while the white tile backsplash and lantern-like pendant lights complete the look.
On the third floor are two large bedrooms and a full bath. One of these bedrooms is surprisingly large, running the width of the home, and surprises once more with an exposed-brick alcove tucked behind an original plaster archway. The bath is elegantly appointed with glass subway tile, a white beadboard wainscot, marble vanity, and classic sconces.
The top floor is dedicated to the master suite and bestowed with lofted ceilings, crown molding, exposed brick, and a skylight, as well as enough space for a separate seating area and an enviable walk-in closet. And the master bath completes this luxurious top-floor retreat in a serene marbled palette of porcelain tile, quartz countertops, and an oversized shower with glass enclosure.
139 Mercer also features a full-height basement with laundry, extra storage, and extra space suitable for a gym or office. High-efficiency Fujitsu mini-split air conditioners and striking custom lighting are also throughout. Perfectly located within walking distance of Van Vorst Park, the Grove Street PATH, and the Newark Avenue pedestrian plaza, this townhouse has full access to the vibrant Downtown Jersey City scene.
