Unique historic four-story, two-family brownstone with five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a private two-car garage located in desirable downtown Jersey City’s Harsimus Cove Historic District, only five minutes from Hamilton Park and eight minutes from the Grove Street PATH, providing connectivity to midtown and downtown in minutes. Originally constructed in the mid-1800’s as part of “Doctor’s Row”, this gracious home features a wide 20.83’X100’ lot and a lush South facing front garden complete with a specimen Magnolia tree and a self-irrigation system. Offering nearly 3000 square feet of interior living space, the home is currently configured with an owner’s triplex and a garden level rental apartment, last leased for $2000 per month. The home’s main entrance features a spacious foyer and magnificent double parlor rooms, perfect for entertaining with soaring 10’ ceilings and an impressive collection of period details including black marble fireplace mantels, plaster crown molding and medallions, French doors and original oak hand-hewn parquet floors. The private two-car garage behind the house is accessed by going through the charming, private rear courtyard garden canopied by Wisteria vines. Heading upstairs, the distinctive windowed stairwell is highlighted by original lincrusta wall covering and a curved mahogany bannister. The second level of the owner’s triplex features a spacious eat-in kitchen with pantry, and a large bedroom spanning the width of the home and is accented by a soapstone fireplace mantle, an original plaster archway and an en-suite full bathroom. The top level of the home features a wall of exposed brick in the stairwell along with exposed timber beams and contains three bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as an office, and one full bathroom. The garden level rental apartment is approximately 750 SF with one bedroom, one-bathroom, separate utilities, a washer/dryer and dishwasher for maximum rental appeal. The home has four separate heating zones, one for each level of living space. Another unique feature of this home is a proprietary security and safety feature; a home automation system.
