NJoy - hoboken house tour

This post has been a long time in the making, the House Tour already was on October 28th, just one day before Sandy hit and flooded the town and probably some of the houses and apartments we have seen. Unfortunately most of my photos didn't come out so great but I had to share the ones from my favorite garden. It was such a quiet and romantic place, what added to the feeling were the (fake) church ruins. Absolutely love the  chandeliers with the candles, I can imagine how nice it must be to sit in this garden in the summer by candle light. They even have a small pool (hot tub) in their garden. Seeing beautiful gardens makes me want to start working on our backyard. We will hopefully start next spring but I have to plan everything beforehand with a friend this winter. The inside of the house was gorgeous as well but it was too dark inside to take decent photos without a tripod...

Have a great weekend!

PS.  Fun fact: The owners had finished their kitchen remodel just two days before the House Tour. Crazy!

  4. That garden is amazing. I hope that gorgeous chandelier survived Sandy! I love those kind of brownstones, with the curved bay windows. So beautiful. I'd eat every meal in that garden if that were my house. Have a great weekend!

    1. This house is standing in a street that is a little elevated, I think they were high enough to not sustain damage. Hope you had a great weekend!

  5. That building with all that ornate detail is stunning. You're right, the garden is beautiful. Do you really think it's been ruined by Sandy? Sad to think. The maple leaves (?) in that second photo look like they're floating. I think these photos are great.
    Happy weekend, Nina!

    1. I think because the house is standing in an area that is a little elevated they probably didn't sustain any damage or just minor. When we walked through that street a couple of days after Sandy, most people had power and you couldn't see any damage. Other places we visited might not have been so lucky...Hope you had a great weekend too!

  6. The table and chandelier go so well with the garden, amazing to think they've build ruins there.
    The building is really grand.

  7. I'm so glad you are sharing these! I was so bummed not to make the house tour this year. One of my favorite things to do in Hoboken is peek inside the brownstone windows.

    1. Can't get enough from peeking into brownstones either ;) Next year you hopefully will be able to make it to the house tour with me...

  8. Oh, just beautiful. And you've made me very curious about the hot tub. I'd love one, but I can't get past how ugly they are! How did they pull it off?! I hope those houses are okay. So many aren't.
