Presenting the quintessential townhouse, lovingly restored to the highest standard, this five-story five-bedroom, 20′ wide, historic turn-of-the-century brownstone townhouse is located in one of Hoboken’s most desirable neighborhoods, and exemplifies the seamless integration of timeless modern design with the home’s original historic details.
157 Tenth Street has been completely renovated, restored and reconfigured into a two-family home and includes an owner’s triplex, a garden level apartment, and a cellar with 6′ high ceilings for storage and utilities. The home has southern exposure, which provides an abundance of light throughout. The current owners use the home as a one family with guest suite and family room. The exhaustive renovation included an extension over two floors with all new systems—including plumbing, electrical, HVAC, radiant heat, and the restoration of the historic molding (including but not limited to large decorative crown molding, casing, rosettes), completely rebuilt and restored staircase and the original double-entry doors.
Subsequent further renovations included complete gutting of the second floor (including the master bath), the addition of a walk-in closet in the master suite with pocket doors, and the addition of a separate multipurpose area currently used as an exercise room.
The renovation also included a new kitchen island, refinished custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, quartz slab backsplash, Wolf Range, Bosch triple rack dishwasher, custom Vent-a-Hood range hood, custom marble sink in the powder room, hardwood floor refinishing, terrace off the master bedroom rebuilt with new Ipe decking, privacy fence and railing, the installation of radiator heating on two upper floors of the house, and new HVAC.
With access from both the lower and parlor floors, the garden features a brick wall built with the home’s own original bricks, synthetic grass, bluestone pavers, Ipe fencing, and a direct gas line to the BBQ.
Tucked away just a block from Washington Street this home offers an abundance of convenience with easy access to boutique shopping, restaurants, cafes and Hoboken’s 14th Street NY Waterway Ferry and NJ Transit for access to Hudson Yards and Manhattan’s Port Authority bus terminal and Path Train to NYC.
