Sale of Hamilton Duel Site Sets Hudson County Record

On October 16, 2014, a mansion built on the site of the Hamilton-Burr duel in Weehawken, New Jersey sold for $6.2 million, setting a new record for Hudson County.  According to the New York Post, the property was purchased by “part of an unnamed top fashion family.”

The Daily Mail has published several pictures of the mansion and states:

“The 7,200-square-foot floor plan is divided into four bedrooms, a gym, an extravagant office, and a private terrace with gaping windows looking out over the Hudson River. “

Idyllic: The new owners can recline among the shrubbery on their private terrace while taking in the buzz of New York City

Historic: The opulent rooms are decked in oak wood, marble and gold, with wrought iron railings outside in neoclassical style

Spell-binding: At night, the bright white house which is lined with trimmed rows of hedges and potted plants, gleams 

The house was built in 2002, and was originally listed for $7.5 million.  Real estate firm Douglas Elliman listed the property.
