Just Listed: Stunning Gut Renovated Townhome at 609 Willow Avenue, Hoboken By Jersey Digs - December 5, 2016
Pure Properties, in partnership with Dixon Leasing, has hit the ground running thanks to the stunning gut renovation at 609 Willow Avenue, now listed at $3,795,000. Recently featured on the annualHoboken House Tour,this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath showplace pairs old and new along Willow Avenue with historic bones and top-notch modern amenities.
The home’s bold façade strikes an immediate and impressive note with repointed original brick and restored features painted a daring, unifying black. This unique and unexpected treatment creates a contemporary focal point on a block that features both historic townhomes and newer construction buildings.
Inside, rather than an enclosed vestibule commonly found in townhouses of this era, an open entry welcomes arrivals and underscores the sprawling openness of the space. The team at Dixon Projects extended the rear wall of the home 16 feet into the yard to create expansive living spaces throughout.
To prevent the center of the home from falling into darkness due to the rear extension, a striking central lightwell was added and topped by a massive skylight. This 35-foot atrium, wrapped in glass handrails, floods the interiors with light while echoing the glass exterior of the home’s adjacent elevator — a rare convenience in Hoboken townhomes.
In contrast to the modern glass features, the home’s welcoming parlor floor living room is lined with original brick walls and exposed beams. Further on, you’ll find a massive open kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances by Bertazzoni and Bosch, while the garden flow below offers a fully-finished bright white space with industrial touches as an open canvas open to the owner’s interpretation as a rec room, home gym or storage space.
Four large bedrooms, each with well-appointed en-suite bathrooms, flank the top two floors, front and rear, alongside a cozy second-floor lounge and third-floor laundry room. In the massive master suite on the top level, the serene bathroom has been artfully arranged to offer an abundance of amenities. The deep soaking tub is clad in stone and set within the boundary of the glass, walk-in shower/steam room. A massive, dual-faucet vanity provides ample storage while the subdued gray herringbone tile sets a relaxing tone.
Throughout the residence, outdoors and light are the main attractions. On the ground level, the paved patio and yard provides great, semi-covered space for all-weather entertaining, while the three floors above boast identical, oversized balconies accessed through folding NanaWall glass doors — inviting the outdoors indoors at the kitchen, master suite and second-floor bedroom. The crowning glory is the large IPE roof deck surrounded by eco-friendly green roof plantings and served by a convenient bulkhead dry bar. With glorious views all the way to the Empire State Building, this tranquil aerie provides a great spot for welcoming each morning and bidding adieu to each evening.
Intentional design details, such as the restrained color palette and the ample use of walnut and black matte steel, provide a cohesive backdrop that warms the sleek, modern elements of the home. Acquired as a fully gutted blank slate, the interiors and architectural plan are exemplary of Dixon Project’s dedication to gorgeous luxury renovations, and are just one part of the Pure Properties offering. With a customer-centric attitude, a hand-selected team of highly skilled agents and a truly innovative integrated approach, from real estate acquisition and sales, to construction and interior design services, Pure Properties is making a strong first impression in Hudson County.

Downtown Jersey City homeowners nervously welcomed the New Year cogniz
"We began our home search with Shaye Lastra in Spring 2013. After speaking with several realtors, Shaye was the person we wanted to work with because she had an exceptionally work ethic, and was very knowledgeable about the area and process.
Shaye and her team showed my husband and I several homes, and helped us put in several offers (we were out-bid). Shaye was very organized and thorough, and constantly checked in and followed up with us, which was very important as we were searching for a property in an extremely competitive market. She was very easy to reach and always available (even on nights and weekends), and was prompt with returning calls when she was not able to pick up the phone herself.
In the end, we purchased a home through a different realty company because the seller had an exclusive contract through a different broker. Shaye fully encouraged us to pursue the home, despite the fact that this would mean the loss of a sale for her and we had been working with her for months. She even put us in touch with a realtor within the other company whom she trusted.
Even though she was no longer our realtor, Shaye kept in touch with us throughout. Due to the rapport we had built, we called her several times throughout the purchasing process to ask for advice when our realtor was on vacation, and when we needed an unbiased opinion. I am sorry that we were not able to finish the process with Shaye, but we are so grateful for having begun the process with her. I highly recommend Shaye for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Jersey City/Hoboken area."
