1st Street – Jersey City, New Jersey


Steps from the Grove Street PATH Station, 1st Street boasts premier finishes and unique pops of color providing a chic look to this newly renovated home. But, getting this beautiful look took several “steps” to ensure an impressive home worthy of the Dixon name.

A previous renovation resulted in improper leveling of floors throughout, causing a large step between the stair landings and bedrooms on every floor. The Projects Team fixed this inconsistency by raising the existing staircase stringers and adjusting each individual tread and riser to ensure the flooring was level throughout. The clever idea to use recycled materials from past projects to finish the stairs and cut further costs resulted in a beautiful, crisp white staircase with wooden steps made entirely of outsourced materials.

Diligence and constant communication between departments were critical in bringing this amazing design to life. Black and white tile floors paired with a funky, sunburst light fixture and elegant, textured wallpaper running up the grand staircase are guaranteed to impress guests upon entry. Immediately to the left, a large navy accent wall with golden lights surrounds an original fireplace mantle and provides additional storage with custom, built-in shelving.

White paint against glossy hardwood floors keeps the space clean throughout the grand parlor level. Venture through large French doors to find a bright, classically designed dining space open to the sunlit kitchen. The kitchen provides another beautiful navy accent on the central island and boasts brand-new Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances, a wine cooler, chic white cabinetry and London Gray Caesarstone countertops. Step outside onto an open wood deck overlooking a perfectly manicured patio and garden.

An entirely new layout makes better use of available space and provides massive bedrooms, bathrooms and closets for this home’s future tenants. A multitude of windows beckon in the sunlight giving the entire home an airy, spacious feel. The floor-through master suite boasts a mammoth walk-in closet and private office or lounge area while all bathrooms feature exquisite tiled floors and custom vanities giving additional pops of color.
