Own a breathtaking piece of history and a significant investment opportunity to boot! Built in 1872 and a legal three-family, 345 Communipaw Avenue offers renovated historical interiors, an owner’s duplex, and two separate two-bed, one-bath units on the second and third floors. The owner’s duplex also enjoys expansive private outdoor space. Located in beloved Bergen-Lafayette, this brownstone is an exceptional Jersey City gem.
The 19th-century home wows with a stately grey stone exterior, gated patio with access to the garden level, a grand front stoop leading to an arched double front door, and countless original facade details all topped by a period-perfect cornice.
The owner’s duplex spans the first and garden levels, offering two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths with immaculate finishes: American Hickory eight-inch wide-plank hardwood floors, arched plasterwork, exposed brick, and thoughtful lighting throughout.
On the first floor, the striking modern kitchen is the real jewel of the renovation. Grey Shaker cabinets, some with glass fronts, with gold hardware and white Quartz countertops offer timeless elegance. There is plenty of space for everything between the ample cabinetry and the massive kitchen island with seating for three. A full suite of stainless steel appliances rounds out the functionality and a handmade crackle glazed tile backsplash adds an eye-catching pop of green.
The kitchen also has direct access to the private back deck and backyard, not to mention wonderful light and air, through charming French doors.
345 Communipaw Avenue features a full basement in addition to the owner’s duplex spanning the garden level/first floor and the separate apartments on the second and third floors. There is also parking for up to three cars — a rare amenity.
Located in the highly sought-after Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood, affectionately known as “BeLa,” this 19th-century brownstone is surrounded by the best of Chilltown cool right now: local coffee shop, The Grind; favorite craft cocktail bar and restaurant, Harry’s Daughter; countless restaurants including Pinwheel Garden Dumpling and Noodle Bar and Hooked JC; and the booming brewery and spirits industry with Corgi Distillery, Jersey City’s first and only distillery, and the recently relocated Hoboken 902 Brew Co.
345 Communipaw Avenue is also only minutes from the Liberty State Park station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and the spectacular green space and waterfront of Liberty State Park — the future home of SciTech City, a “mini-city” built to optimize STEM.
345 Communipaw Avenue is asking $1,348,888.
