Description

The Grande Dame of Doctors Row. Situated on a plot wider than two double lots and 20% deeper than standard lots, this classic, circa 1900, Queen Ann Victorian, is perhaps the largest house on the market, and located in the heart of Jersey City’s burgeoning Lincoln Park neighborhood – one block from its best park with a farmer’s market, athletic fields, tennis courts, track, walking and bike paths, 3 dog parks, renovated wetlands and environmental preserve, famous bird watching, ponds and gorgeous fountain roundabout. Back on the property, a manicured hedge invites you up the garden path to sip lemonade while sitting on the front porch swing. The foyer is an Art Nouveau dream, replete with stained glass windows and chandeliers, parquet floors, purely decorative pillars, lattice work, medallions, archways, and wainscoting that curve up the front staircase to the second floor, flooded by color from two stories of more stained-glass windows on the east side of the house. A turret dominates the architecture of the southwest corner rooms on all three floors creating fascinating spaces like the front room on the main level. That distinctive circular detail along with the decorative tile fireplace, framed by more decorative woodwork and an inlaid mirror, creates a unique office space. Too numerous to mention, these types of details fill this home. The main level consists of the aforementioned foyer and office, formal dining room, living room with working fireplace, full bathroom, back hall, back staircase, kitchen and an all-season porch that leads to the back deck and pool. The second floor has five bedrooms, a full bath and an extra room that has been gutted to the studs, ready to be incorporated as an En-Suite bathroom to create a master bedroom. The roof line defines a loft area on the third floor, however, there are two full sized bedrooms in addition to that open space as well as full bath and another interesting circular turret room. The basement is semi-finished and has a full mother/daughter apartment, laundry room and a massive workspace. A five-car driveway and garage complete the home. Some restoration is needed to recapture its former grandeur. There is something for everyone in this fast-growing neighborhood: gourmands will love the new restaurants popping up monthly, art lovers will enjoy the Centre Pompidou coming soon, links lovers are 1 mile from the Skyway Golf, and of course NYC commuters will love the convenience of Journal Square PATH.
