16 Homes Have Sold and Closed; Two Homes Remain For Sale.
JERSEY CITY, N.J. – An amazing success story is nearing its conclusion in downtown Jersey City where two condominium homes are all that remain at Ivy House, the boutique building of 18 residences situated just steps from the Grove St. PATH Station.
The wave of success at Ivy House is highlighted by the impressive 16 closings that have occurred since the boutique building began welcoming its residents late last year, according to locally-based Fields Development Group, which is developing the Ivy House in joint venture with TreeTop Development.
“From the onset, Ivy House emerged as an attractive condominium building by offering a unique urban product highlighted by well-appointed interiors and extremely reasonable prices,” says Jim Caulfield, Jr., a Fields principal. “This desirable blend allowed us to draw high quality buyers and conduct a campaign that balanced strong sales activity and a consistent string of closings – an increasingly rare combination in today’s fluctuating housing market.”
The two remaining homes at Ivy House are priced from the upper-$300,000s. The cutting edge one-and two-bedroom home designs feature the latest in architectural trends, with interiors boasting contemporary finishes such as nine-foot volume ceilings, large windows, hardwood flooring, kitchens with upgraded cabinetry, stone countertops, a full ensemble of stainless steel appliances including GE and Bosch products and lavish master bath suites with ceramic tile and stone vanity countertops. All two-bedroom homes feature a private terrace and penthouse homes will include private rooftop decks.
Residents also enjoy an elegant glass lobby and a common roof deck with sun deck, kitchenette and incredible views. A limited number of on-site parking spaces are available for purchase.
“While Ivy House is a unique opportunity for homeownership, no detail has been spared in these upscale residences,” adds Mr. Caulfield. “It’s a primary reason the building has drawn so much interest from former renters who are discovering they can purchase here with monthly payments equal to what they are now spending on rent.
“These homes are being made even more attractive thanks to a temporary tax abatement Ivy House has been granted.”
Situated at 154-158 Steuben Street in the historic Hudson County City of Jersey City, Ivy House has appealed to those seeking an upscale urban lifestyle near restaurants, services and mass transportation options in a less-congested neighborhood slightly removed from more populated downtown epicenters.
“While Steuben Street is in the shadow of Jersey City’s Hudson River “Gold Coast” development, it has retained the same charm and character of an old fashioned Brooklyn or Manhattan neighborhood,” Mr. Caulfield adds.
“Yet, the area is extremely pedestrian-friendly with an abundance of shopping, restaurants and entertainment and cultural opportunities available to reduce the need to travel by car. What’s more, with PATH service steps from our front door, Ivy House is minutes from all that Manhattan and downtown Jersey City have to offer.”
