Offered at: $2,350,000
Description:

477 Jersey Avenue, located in the Heart of Van Vorst Park

One of the grandest brownstones in downtown Jersey City. Custom built

in 1887 for an ambassador, once one of Jersey City’s finest single-family

mansions.

 

Twenty-five feet wide with approximately 4,300 square feet of usable

interior space. Incomparable grandeur includes majestic 12′ doorways,

period cavalier statues, and original parquet flooring.

 

Currently configured as four units with a total of 6 bedrooms and 4 full

baths, this stately townhouse is built nearly full on at the garden and

parlor levels and stands four stories tall plus basement.

The astounding loft style parlor features soaring 18′ ceiling heights,

period moldings, hand-carved ceilings and medallions. Light flows

through the oversized windows on three sides. Newer remolded kitchen

with white marble countertops, custom cabinetry, and stainless steel

appliances.

 

Below, on the garden level where the ambassador once received visitors,

sits a stately hand painted vault. More hand-crafted details featuring

built-in original cabinets, an ornate fireplace mantel, and charming

private patio and backyard.

The basement has full ceiling heights with laundry area, and ample

storage.

 

The 2 apartments above, 2nd & 3rd floors, are flooded with sunlight

with approximately 10 windows on each level. Each have formal dining

rooms, spacious living rooms, and lovely original detail throughout.

Both kitchens have been recently renovated, one brand new with

stainless steel appliances, granite and breakfast bar.

 

This unique piece of real estate is located directly across from Victorian

Van Vorst Park, the historic main public library, only steps from the

Grove St. PATH Station, famed Downtown Jersey City Restaurant Row,

and countless shops.

A truly rare real estate opportunity.
