Tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac atop the Palisades, just up the hill from the Weehawken waterfront, Whole Foods and uptown Hoboken, 161 Nesbit St. offers everything you’ve been searching for… and so much more! Space will never be an issue in this massive, gut-renovated 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home that sprawls across 3 levels of exquisitely finished, turnkey living space, located just 12 minutes from Midtown Manhattan. Currently utilized as an oversized one-family, this beautifully renovated brownstone is a legal two-family house, set up as an owner’s duplex with a bonus top floor unit that offers the ultimate flexibility for an in-law suite, au pair apartment, or rental income. Enter the main floor bursting with natural light, soaring ceilings and historic details (including the restored original staircase) and transition into a tastefully designed modern layout. A large open kitchen and living room offers the ideal blend of elegance and functionality with gleaming quartz countertops, ample white shaker cabinetry, pendant lighting, a custom waterfall table, reclaimed wood shelving and exposed brick. A full suite of stainless steel appliances (including a double-oven and built in wine fridge) is great for cooking, entertaining and family dinners. Or dine al fresco in your immaculately landscaped backyard oasis with a spacious bluestone patio that is perfect for hosting summer BBQs. Rounding out the main level are 2 bedrooms & 2 full bathrooms, including an oversized master bedroom with large bay windows, custom woodwork and a sparkling en suite bathroom with a quartz-topped dual vanity, marble-floored shower with glass door and linen closet. Continue past the mudroom containing a handcrafted, built-in storage bench and down the stairs to a massive open lower level that houses a kids’ playroom, laundry, large full bathroom and home office. No need to trek out to a movie theater anymore, since the lower level also includes a spectacular home theater system complete with hard-wired surround sound. Not to be outdone, the second floor offers 3 additional large bedrooms, a separate office/exercise room, a full bathroom & laundry room. Original details abound on the upper level with soaring ceilings, plaster crown molding, rosette glass transoms, original ceiling medallions & built-ins. These historic details blend tastefully with another open kitchen that features a 4-seat island, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances (including a double oven & built-in wine fridge) and brick accent wall with reclaimed-wood floating shelving. Stunning curb appeal includes a restored original cornice on the front facade and best of all, you will never have to worry about street parking again because your private driveway leads to an attached one-car garage that boasts a newly installed EV charger with 220V service. Additional features include 2-zone central HVAC with NEST thermostats, gleaming hardwood floors, recessed lighting with dimmers, new Pella windows and skylight, soundproofing between units & much more. Why choose between the suburbs and city living when you can have the best of both worlds with this truly one-of-a-kind home.
