Welcome home to this lovely townhouse on a quiet, tree-lined street in the heart of Jersey City’s Harsimus Cove historic district. This three story, single-family 1870’s home has been thoughtfully renovated to preserve the original, heirloom qualities that make it such a rare find. Accessed through the front French doors, the parlor level retains its original large bay window, plaster walls and picture-rail crown moldings, as well as its wood-burning fireplace with original marble mantle. The dining room is illuminated by a cut-glass chandelier, and the home’s antique pumpkin pine floors glow with a warm patina. The parlor level’s two main rooms have retained their original 19th century dimensions, while an updated extension at the rear of the house currently serves as a cozy, light-flooded office overlooking the garden below. The parlor floor also has a full bath with porcelain fixtures and tile shower. Downstairs, the garden level is perfect for entertaining, and has a separate entrance from the street. Here you will find a large updated kitchen, with stainless-steel appliances, including a Bosch dishwasher and 5-burner DCS gas range. The kitchen opens through French doors to a sunny, private garden with English ivy and flowering roses. The garden level’s beadboard ceiling and original coal stove serve as a reminder of the home’s historic past. Wood cabinetry with glass handles provide ample storage, while concealing the convenient washer and dryer. On the top floor, you will find two spacious bedrooms with large closets, and a full bath with period fixtures, including a cast iron bathtub with shower. Enjoy experiencing what "home" means in this fine example of 19th century living, updated with all the amenities of today. Make it yours!
