The degree of care and thought that goes into a restoration cannot be overstated. A developer must balance reverence for the history of a space with the lifestyle demands of the modern homeowner. It’s a delicate balance and one that’s executed triumphantly at The Fig Tree.
Located in downtown Hoboken just south of Church Street Park, The Fig Tree is a 40-foot wide, five-story brownstone that has been painstakingly restored, its details preserved while structural steel bolsters its bones. Its transformation into a quartet of stylish, state-of-the-art residences represents an exciting opportunity to own a piece of a classic in a commuter-convenient location, just ten minutes away from the Hoboken Ferry Terminal and PATH Station. The building boasts a distinctive profile thanks to a mansard roof and two copper bay windows rising three full stories across its original turn-of-the-century face. If walls could talk, these bricks could speak volumes. As it is, the interior has been extensively soundproofed — so you likely won’t hear much!
These four homes were imagined with sustainability in mind, with spray foam insulation and high-efficiency HVAC systems for optimized comfort, and LED recessed lighting for even more energy savings. For your enjoyment, put on some music via the multi-zone SONOS speaker system. The kitchen boasts heavy-hitting appliances by Wolf and Sub-Zero to bring your culinary visions to life.
But the homes at The Fig Tree are also designed to please the eye too, thanks to white oak herringbone floors, quartzite countertops, and bespoke cabinetry.
Master bedrooms include dual walk-ins and bathrooms nothing short of indulgent, with heated floors and towel bars, Waterworks fixtures, and custom walnut dual vanities.
Each home enjoys direct elevator access and outdoor space. Unit #1 includes a 40’ wide, 1,500 sq. ft. private backyard, while #3 and #4 can take elevators up to their private rooftop decks with fire pits and a built-in BBQ complete with refrigerator and sink. The rooftop decks offer New York City views, as do the fourth and fifth floors. Three units have terraces accessible from the living room, with gas lines for grilling.
The four residences at The Fig Tree range in space from 2,253 to 2,920 sq. ft., and in price from $1.9 to $2.5 million.
