Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and his wife Jaclyn recently purchased a new home on Ogden Avenue for $2.4 million, indicating that it’s the perfect place to raise their two children and eventually have the mayor’s parents move into.
“Jersey City will always be our home and we’re very grateful to have found this property within our current neighborhood that will be able to support our growing family and also allow Steven’s parents to eventually move in with us,” Steven and Jaclyn Fulop said in a joint statement following an inquiry from HCV.
“Family is incredibly important to us both and the opportunity to bring us all closer together while staying in the neighborhood we love was impossible to pass up. We’ve both been very fortunate to have had success in our careers and feel very blessed to be in a position to put down these kinds of permanent roots in this community that means so much to our family, and we look forward to raising our kids here in the Jersey City Heights.”
The five-bedroom, 5,232 square-foot property at 272 Ogden Ave. was purchased by the Fulops from Dixon Advisory on June 7th, according to public records, walking distance from their current residence at 260 Ogden Ave. that they bought for $845,000 in 2015.
They will also be collecting $11,995 in monthly rent from a long-term tenant that will continue to live at 272 Ogden Ave. until the Fulop family moves in.
The penthouse was recently owned by NFL offensive guard Justin Pugh when he played for the New York Giants.
An NJ Advance Media profile from April 2018 said the Heights home comes equipped with a rooftop pool, movie theatre, wet bar, and four-car garage.
The residence has an assessed value of $1,086,800, according to online real estate marketplace Trulia.
This is the second home the Fulops have purchased since January 2018, when they acquired a waterfront property in Narragansett, Rhode Island, the town that Jaclyn grew up in, for $820,000.
