Description

A Century of History. On 19th St and Kennedy Blvd sits “The Nest” a bright and spacious two-story historic single-family home perched on top of a park like double corner lot measuring 58x100. This Mediterranean style classic home offers master craftsmanship throughout with most of the original features still intact. Just west of Hoboken and Jersey City, this home offers doorstep transportation to NYC (just 3 miles from Midtown Manhattan) with a detached two car garage. This home was build in 1918 motivated by French Architectural designs covered under its original glossy green glazed clay roof tile. Approximately 2400 square feet of living space on 5859 square ft of land, with four bedrooms, two half and one full huge bath, two living rooms, two fireplaces, a formal dining room, a sitting room, remolded kitchen, enclosed heated front porch, an office/den, parking for 4 cars, full basement, laundry room, storage / closets throughout, and lush garden that wraps around the home. The main entrance welcomes you to a delightful sun-filled enclosed heated porch, which leads to a great room and upon you will be the the legendary grand staircase made of imported Mahogany from Germany with bronze statuettes on the newel posts labeled “par J-B Germain” (french artist) . This great room with two living rooms, stone mantel fire place, stain glass windows, original parquet hardwood floors, antique light fixtures, wall scones, beveled glass pocket doors, high ceilings with medallions and leaf motifs adorn throughout. Impressive original details, craftsmanship throughout including original wood doors and ceramic moldings. The formal dining rooms leads to a quaint modest remodeled kitchen with a turn of a century Chambers Stove and the entrance to a 1940 working accordion-style elevator. Basement contains a multipurpose room, laundry, half bath and plenty of storage. Upstairs are four bedrooms appropriately sized for the era with parquet wood floors, closets, and a huge bathroom with original subway tiles including a tub, sink and separate large custom shower. All of the original details and craftsmanship are extremely impressive and very rare to find in a home. This unique, historic and centrally located home requires some restoration and updating to bring back it’s original grand style.
