Behind a simple, unassuming wrought-iron gate, like so many others in Hoboken, discover an exciting surprise. Once the Biermann Marzipan Candy Factory, transformed into a well-appointed and meticulously renovated unique property through the collaboration of architect Jensen Vasil and Robert Jenny Design & Builders. Also, very rare to find private parking for three cars really makes for a Sweet Lifestyle. Upon entering this distinctive home be greeted by 10 ft tall ceilings and original restored details inside the main room, followed by a formal sitting room with piano, expansive dining area centered by a large filament chandelier, and fabulous custom kitchen. Perfect for entertaining, the elongated island easily accommodates counter seating for 6+ stools; or enjoy the custom fully loaded wet bar anchored at the end of the main room, finished with a patina mirror that sets the tone of this residence. The kitchen includes custom cabinetry, upgraded access systems creating a chef style cooking experience, splendid soapstone counters, exquisite white arabesque backsplash, and top of the line appliances. The home’s original preserved wood floors & beams combined with tin ceilings, crown moldings, and newly added picture rail to display art by suspension, truly complement the space while paying homage to the property’s beginnings as a candy manufacturer. All the modern and functional upgrades anyone would expect today have\ carefully been integrated! Beyond this point is an intermediate space currently used as a gaming room, a charming and conveniently located powder room for guests, and access to the grand courtyard; or continue forward onto the private living room quarters replete with a stunning barn door separating the areas calling for privacy. The comfortable and spacious living room is ideal for everyday lounging and memorable movie nights. On a cool evening, retract the wall of large glass doors leading to a well-manicured courtyard. Once fully open, this connects the outdoors to the indoors flawlessly and allows an abundance of south facing natural light to illuminate the room. The main floor features a proper laundry room with clothes-shoot descending from the primary bath, a tremendous amount of storage options, a bonus bedroom with built-in Murphy bed, a full bath, and lastly a rare to find dedicated play-work space; all overlooking the courtyard with multiple access points. Head up the staircase to the tranquil second level sleeping quarters, complete with a primary bedroom suite and two additional bedrooms. Two full spa-like baths include everything from dramatic wallpapers, handmade subway tile, and slate floors, to penny tile in shades of blue, and Caesarstone and Calcutta marble countertops. A few more highlights in the primary bathroom are the desirable steam shower and elegant soaking tub. Hardware finishes include a pleasant mix of metals from antique brass inset medicine cabinets to the nickel fixtures. The residence includes 3 zoned heating & cooling between two systems, hard-wired security system, custom window treatments, and impressive closets installments. Finally, off-set carrying costs by collecting rental income from the updated 3 bed & 3 bath unit with a terrace; accessed from a separate private entrance; making this property a great investment. The potential to combine both units to create an in-law’s suite, the options are unlimited; currently a 3,500 square-foot private owner residence, double wide courtyard, bonus isolated 1,600 square-foot rental. 340 Garden is one of the most unique properties in the Mile-Square, a true testament to what can be done when history and modernity are combined: preserving the old, while embracing the present.
