In another sign of Hoboken's hot real estate market, the renovated turn-of-the-century townhouse owned by "Today" news anchor Natalie Morales and listed for $3.1 million found a buyer in six days.
The house is under contract, NJ.com has confirmed, but listing agents Peter Cossio and Matt Brown of Halstead Property would not reveal the purchase price at this time.
Morales and her husband Joseph Rhodes bought the townhouse in 2002 for $1 million, and in 2008 they added a 4-story addition, bringing the home to 3,600 square feet. The renovation included a modern kitchen with heated Brazilian slate floors. The backyard features a play area with a basketball hoop and retractable netting system, a custom built-in barbecue island with granite countertops, a 42-inch gas grill and a Kalamazoo pizza oven. Taxes are $25,574.
Morales and her family are headed to Los Angeles, where she will become the West Coast anchor for "Today" and host "Access Hollywood" and "Access Hollywood Live" for NBC.
Cossio also handled the recent Hudson County record sale of another fully-renovated townhouse in Hoboken for $6.5 million. Currently the highest-price property on the market is Eli Manning's 3-bedroom condo in the Hudson Tea Building fort $5.2 million, but three homes in the $3 million-plus range have come on the market in the last three weeks.
