You want to live in The Abbey in Hoboken, NJ?
How many of you would be okay with living in a former Hoboken church? You ever thought of what goes on behind the scenes at The Abbey on Hudson Street? This well-known structure has been around for a very VERY long time… and now at least one unit has “come to the market” courtesy of Hudson Place Realty.
Now you can see what it looks like on the inside!
Is $3300 a month for a modest 2br apartment fair?
Not sure what to think of this property. For $3300 a month (about $40k post-tax per year), you can live in this “dramatic” duplex on one of the best streets in the Mile Square. How does that make you feel? Warm and fuzzy? Scared and reluctant? Anyway – here’s the pitch from the Realtor:
“Dramatic duplex in the Abbey, a converted church on beautiful Hudson Street. Original cathedral windows, vaulted ceilings, skylight & patterned inlaid hw floors. Chef’s kitchen w/ Bosch micro, range and oven, Fisher Paykel frig and Miele DW. From the kitchen is an open pass-through to an elegant, separate dining area. Baths completely redone w/ travertine marble, cutting edge vanities & soaking tub. Great closet space and laundry just outside your front door. Parking space available for additional fee. Pets ok with fee.”
This place really shouldn’t get more that $1900 a month a max, but because it’s “special” will certainly get tons of viewers. Perhaps they’ll have an ounce of common sense in their reserves, or they’ll just get wrapped up in the “frenzy” of Real Estate. We’ll see what happens to this “historical” property five years out…
