Inside the $5 Million Hoboken Home That Just Sold On Hudson Street

Written by:

Hoboken is known for tree-lined streets and beautiful brownstone homes. Hudson Street is one of the best-known locations for historic mansions built by the original Hoboken families settling in the area in the late 1800s. A few of the historic homes have undergone total gut renovations, whether because the house fell into disrepair or simply to make necessary upgrades, the renovations breathe new life into this timeless street. The home at 903 Hudson Street underwent a ground-up construction in 2014, resulting in the present-day building located one block south of Elysian Park. We’re giving you an inside look at the luxurious finishes inside + breathtaking exterior spaces that landed the record for one of the highest-priced single-family home sold in Hoboken ever at $5 million.

The Inspo

The inspiration behind the interior design and decor was to fit in with the rest of the gorgeous and historic Hudson Street. This home features what one would expect in a historic Hudson Street house including intricate steelwork on the double-door entrance, bay windows, and unparalleled Indiana Limestone on the facade. Convenience and ease are high priorities in this home.

While everyone else struggles with street parking or coordinating getting the car from a garage, 903 Hudson Street has space to park 3 cars including a private driveway. Instead of schlepping to the gym, there is an in-home gym on the ground level. And as if having one dishwasher wasn’t rare enough in Hoboken, this home has a second dishwasher.

Custom Features in the Living Room

Every detail in this home was thought through to the highest extent. Custom-made Italian DiCarlo windows let the light shine throughout the home, including the floor-to-ceiling windows facing the patio. These windows are designed with 8-point-entry making them virtually indestructible.

The living space has Quarter Sawn oak floors, custom Urban Archeology light fixtures to enhance the history maintained with the new design, a gas fireplace in the living room, and a custom vanity in the powder room. To top it all off the first and second floors are kept at a comfortable temperature during the winter with a high-efficiency boiler.

Dining Room + Kitchen

The stunning dining room features hand-painted dark blue and gold de Gourny wallpaper with Italian-made Serguso Murano chandelier and sconces. The kitchen features a Thermadore appliance with a modern microwave drawer, custom cabinets, and a second dishwasher and sink in the Butler’s Pantry, allowing the main kitchen to be kept clean while entertaining.

The large steel-framed doors on the first floor lead out to the bluestone patio, creating a cohesive indoor/outdoor experience. While most people look for luxury in the appliances and light fixtures, this home takes it one step further. The lights and temperature control are connected to a Lutron RadioRA system offering settings for different times of day, specific occasions like dinner time, or scheduled to turn on automatically while the homeowner is away.

Master Bedroom + Office

Few places focus on the features of a staircase but homes in Hoboken often have spiral or curved staircases, this home included. The staircase at 903 Hudson Street is covered in bespoke wool and silk-lined carpeting giving it a truly customized touch.

The master bedroom has a Venetian Plaster ceiling, TransFORM closets for optimized storage including a custom marble island and coordinated seating. Even in a 7,400-square-foot home every inch of space still serves a purpose, like the hidden storage behind the bed in the master bedroom. The office located on the same floor features light oak millwork for a light-filled space to get work done.

You can’t have a historic home without unique features like a spire nook. The rounded bay windows on the exterior create a turret-like tower which leads to a small space in the interior at the top of the house. Each bedroom has ample space, amazing natural light, and unique features. There is even a wine cellar on the ground floor to hold a wine-lovers collection.
