Location, Parking, Size, Private Garden, Central AC… This beautiful and spacious house situated in the coveted Hamilton Park neighborhood checks all the boxes. The lovingly restored and maintained four-story townhouse with an extension features three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a powder room, a formal dining room, a 30 ft great room with an open kitchen, a third-floor family room and an income generating one-bedroom ground floor apartment. The legal two family house provides new owners with flexibility; the owner’s triplex can be combined with the rental apartment to create a five-bedroom mansion, or the family room can easily be converted to a fourth bedroom. The handsome brick façade is striking and the parking space in the front is priceless. Much of the original grandeur are still intact including four marble fireplace mantles, winding staircase banisters, an iconic front-stoop and intricate metal works. The recent upgrades include roof replacement, kitchen with pantries and sizable island, stunning master bathroom with a skylight and the kitchen in the rental apartment. With three exposures to E, W & S, every room is flooded with natural light. In addition, a wooden deck that leads down to the planted and paved garden is located off the dining room. The house stands in one of the most convenient locations just a short distance to PATH, the historic Hamilton Park, Newport Mall, Holland Tunnel, riverfront, schools, cafes and boutiques.
