The Search: Townhouse Living


One of the most attractive traits of downtown Jersey City and beyond are the townhouses. Their historic charm is one of the reasons many compare the area to Brooklyn. It’s a great time to buy as supply is limited and prices are sure to increase steadily, if not dramatically, in the future. Let’s take a look at some that are active on the market:

286 Monmouth St

Three floors of this townhome on Monmouth Street is available in the form of a three bedroom unit that comes with a private yard. The unit may need a tiny bit of sprucing up, but the bones are appealing. For instance, updating the cabinetry and countertops in the kitchen could really make the black and white tile floors stand out.

220 Ege Ave

A more affordable option is available on the West Side. It’s recently renovated and near the Light Rail. The arches in the dining room, upstairs skylight, and period ceiling medallion give the home a unique and charming feel.

243 Marin Blvd

We wish there were more photos of this home as it seems truly spectacular. The kitchen and living areas look quite dramatic with intricate molding work and dark hardwood floors. The master bathroom shower is also quite luxurious. If the 5 bedroom house is worth a $1.599M price tag remains to be seen.
