A mansion, four “barns,” a resort-like pool and jacuzzi, a full basketball court–these are just the main attractions at this $5,900,000 property located in Holland Township, New Jersey. The 86-acre estate feels like it’s been plucked out of the Napa Valley, with its Tuscan style and rolling grounds. We’re pretty certain it doesn’t come with the insane sports car and classic car collections (there’s even a retro mechanic shop!), but for the price of a Tribeca loft, this is quite the home.

Bordering Hoboken, Weehawken, and Jersey City Heights, this loft building in Union City was built in the 1930s as a garment factory. Today, it offers Soho-style loft apartments, but at much more New Jersey prices. Asking $1,275,000, this sprawling 4,220-square-foot condo was recently remodeled to take advantage of historic architectural details like exposed brick, wooden beams, and massive windows through which there are views of the NYC skyline.

It’s not often you find a Craftsman-style home in the northeast, which is why we were so taken with this freestanding house in Hoboken. Located at 819 Hudson Street, a block full of beautiful historic homes, it was built in 1912 and has changed hands only three times since then. The current owner underwent an extensive two-year renovation that included a 2,000+ square-foot extension, which brings the house to a total of 5,200 square feet, six bedrooms, and a full-floor rec room. Plus, because it’s on an oversized lot, the backyard is extra large.

History, New Jersey

Jersey City has reached a $72 million deal with the operator of the Prudential Center to transform the historic Loew’s Wonder Theatre into a modern 3,300-seat venue. Mayor Steven Fulop on Monday announced a partnership with Devils Arena Entertainment to renovate the nearly 100-year-old theater that once operated as an opulent entertainment destination when it opened in 1929 and was nearly demolished in the 1980s, but was saved by a grassroots preservation effort. The city sees the restoration of Loew’s as part of a broader revitalization of the transit-friendly Journal Square neighborhood, where multiple mixed-use towers are in the works.

His first commission in private practice, architect Richard Meier designed this modernist home in New Jersey for his parents in 1965. The home is set on three-quarters of an acre overlooking the Essex Fells Country Club and because of this natural setting, the architect introduced large glass walls to blur the boundaries between inside and outside. His parents requested a one-story home that offered privacy unlike most suburban homes, so Meier incorporated an interior courtyard, as well as a roof garden. The home has only had one other owner since the Meiers, and they’ve now listed it for $1,750,000.

Starting Friday, New Jersey restaurants and bars can serve more customers and stay open later. Gov. Phil Murphy on Wednesday signed an executive order relaxing some coronavirus restrictions for indoor gatherings, pointing to a decrease in new daily cases and hospitalizations across the state. Under the order, which goes into effect ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, indoor dining capacity can increase from 25 percent to 35 percent and the 10 p.m. curfew at restaurants will be lifted.

After sitting vacant for over a decade, a large site in Jersey City’s Journal Square will soon be home to two 710-foot towers with over 1,700 units of housing. The Jersey City Planning Board on Tuesday approved Kushner Companies’ controversial One Journal Square project, signaling the beginning of the end of this development saga. The approval came after the city and the developer reached a settlement agreement last October over a lawsuit filed in 2018 against the city by Kushner Companies, run by the family of White House advisor Jared Kushner, that claimed officials stalled the project over “anti-Trump” sentiment.

The Heights section of Jersey City is definitely up-and-coming, with plenty of awesome restaurants and parks, but it’s still more affordable than the Downtown part of town. Case in point, this three-bedroom condo at 209 Hutton Street. It occupies the first floor of a modern townhouse and has three bedrooms, a backyard, and private parking (a rarity even across the Hudson), and it’s asking just $620,000.
