Description

Bright and spacious three-story historic single-family home perched on top of the Palisade Cliffs offers tremendous sunlight, NYC views and includes a driveway with parking for two cars. Located at the end of a quiet tree-lined dead-end street adjacent to Washington Park, just west of Hoboken and just north of Jersey City Heights, this charming 1913 home sits on a double lot measuring 50’x100’ and includes 4100 square feet of living space over three levels with six bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, two living rooms, a media room, an office, a basement and a lush garden that wraps around the home. A delightful sunroom at the main entrance welcomes you into an expansive living room with a wood burning fireplace, built-in bookshelves, original parquet hardwood floors and a historic curved staircase. The sizable formal dining room features a bay window with southern exposure and views of Washington Park. A large extension built in 1991 nearly doubled the amount of living space and created room for an oversize eat-in-kitchen surrounded by windows featuring a 60” Garland professional range with a custom vent hood, black countertops and white cabinetry. Next to the kitchen is a media room, powder room, laundry closet and access to the garden with a patio for alfresco dining under the trees. Upstairs on the second level are five bedrooms, two full bathrooms and nine closets that provide abundant storage space. The top floor serves as an enormous master suite including a huge living room with vaulted ceilings, a large bedroom with two closets and views, a full bathroom with a walk-in shower and a unique office space with dormer picture windows providing views of NYC and Washington Park. Other highlights include central air conditioning, oak hardwood floors throughout, roof replaced in 2009, electrical/plumbing/mechanicals updated in 1991, a full basement for storage/mechanicals and an additional narrow 50’ long parcel of land across the street on the edge of the Palisades. 203 Manhattan Avenue is conveniently located only two blocks to the Congress Street NJ Transit Light Rail stop with elevator access to Hoboken and one block to the bus stop for transit to Port Authority.
