A huge, historic townhouse at 614 Hudson Street in Hoboken has hit the market for $6,995,000. If it sells for this price, it’ll be the biggest townhouse sale ever in Hoboken and all of Hudson County. The current record holder is 504 Hudson Street, which sold for $6.5 million back in 2016. This new contender was gut renovated in 2017, leaving the main home with 5,600 square feet of stunningly beautiful space, six bedrooms, an elevator, and a roof deck. Notably, the property also has a separate carriage house with a loft apartment, as well as a private two-car garage, which, if you know anything about parking in Hoboken, is the biggest selling point of all.

Olivier Sarkozy, banker and half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, has listed his Turtle Bay Gardens townhouse for $11,500,000, as the New York Times first reported. Sarkozy’s five-year marriage to Mary-Kate Olsen ended earlier this year, and according to Vanity Fair, the “sticking point” of the divorce was this house. That’s not really surprising, considering the home at 226 East 49th Street is a whopping 8,700 square feet and has historic and opulent features such as a grand ballroom, 22-foot coffered ceilings, and backyard art studio. Sarkozy bought the house in 2014 for $13.5 million from painter David Deutsch.
