Evoking a residential experience fit for a royal, The Duchess is truly a luxury property and an opportunity to rent at a level of sophistication usually reserved for purchase. Located on River Road in North Bergen along New Jersey’s Gold Coast, the building commands world-class views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline and offers an exceptional amenity collection. The Duchess was developed by the Post Brothers with interiors designed by Paris Forino for a chic modern rental.
The striking 12-story red brick and glass facade juts out in three sections, conjuring the convex curves of a cruise ship. Comprised of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans, The Duchess offers a layout for every lifestyle, combining a relaxed waterfront setting with a refined urban residence and contemporary common spaces.
Apartments wow with floor-to-ceiling windows for wonderful light and air not to mention sweeping river and city views. European white oak hardwood floors run throughout and recessed LED lights twinkle overhead.
Kitchens continue the nautically-inspired look, feeling sleek and functional like the galley of a yacht. Custom cabinetry, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, and Quartz countertops make this space way more than your average rental apartment kitchen plus the Grohe professional-grade fixtures and glass tile backsplash are distinctive details.
Baths are tiled in sandy travertine and have a lengthy list of luxury features, including deluxe Grohe fixtures and an oversized mirror with integrated makeup lighting. Bathtubs are soaking sized and standing showers are sleek with seamless glass doors.
Bedrooms are large and feature decadent amounts of closet space — built-in millwork, mirrored doors, and dressing areas in larger units define these extravagant areas. Ceiling fans and built-in roller shades, as well as a high capacity washer/dryer, are luxe touches, elevating these rental residences to another, even serene, level.
The Duchess also offers residents an unrivaled collection of amenities, approached with an artist’s eye with designer Paris Forino. On the third floor, a signature leisure lifestyle takes shape, indoors and out. A heated lounge pool and hot tub are flanked by private cabana beds and sun chaises on The Water Terrace while The Veranda includes a yoga deck, sandbox, table tennis, and fire pit lounges. And this entire whimsical outdoor oasis is ringed by skyline overlooks and private terraces.
The Wellness Center, inside on the third floor, is a world-class gym and spa in one with steam room, sauna, and massage room plus a group fitness area and a cardio/weight room. And for an extra burst of luxury — a juice bar.
The rooftop also includes an array of elegant spaces for hosting and socializing, including a lounge, wine bar room, game room, kids’ room, and grand outdoor dining areas, private terraces, a rooftop kitchen, and sweeping New York City skyline views.
The Duchess benefits from frequent NJ Transit bus service and a vibrant shopping and dining scene both in North Bergen and bordering Edgewater. The Gold Coast also has absolutely no shortage of Hudson River waterfront recreation and green space.
A Post Brothers project, The Duchess is the renowned Philadelphia-based developer’s first building in New Jersey. Known as sustainably minded innovators with deep in-house expertise, the Post Brothers strive to make upscale state-of-the-art living accessible to all.
