You know you want to be like Pete Davidson, a Staten Island native. Or, maybe you don’t. But the appeal of his Staten Island hometown is for real. With more New Yorkers seeking more space, beaches, parks, and residential neighborhoods, Staten Island offers all that plus excellent value. Here are five spacious homes in some of Staten Island’s most desirable neighborhoods. Tempted?
We kick things off with a nearly 2,000 square foot home with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The pristine interior features hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, and plenty of storage. However, the picturesque patio with a fantastic gazebo are the true showstoppers. It’s nearly impossible to believe you get all of this home goodness for less than $900k!
We jump up in price to $1.4M for this 4,000-square-foot brick Colonial. A luxe remodel makes this a modern castle: Double-door entry, hardwoods, custom kitchen, new bathrooms, plus new windows. Now head outside: In-ground swimming pool, built-in barbecue with an outdoor kitchen, and covered deck. Here every summer weekend feels like a vacation. Compare this to what $1.4M gets you in Manhattan or Brooklyn. Well?
Feel right at home in this corner lot Colonial 4-bedroom. Traditional styling and a generous 2,136-square-foot layout are its calling cards. The main floor offers an eat-in kitchen with cherry cabinets, a formal living room with a fireplace, a dining room, and a family room. There’s more! Lower-level recreation room, in-ground swimming pool, mature landscaping — all set in one of Staten Island’s most picturesque neighborhoods.
Let’s go big! This custom Colonial for $2.75M is a Hollywood movie set that comes to life. At 8,000 square feet, it’s a masterwork in scale and finishes. Formal everything from the living room to the primary bedroom suite, including a walk-in closet the size of many Brooklyn apartments! Elevator, Brazilian hardwoods, marble kitchen with high-end appliances, in-ground swimming pool, cigar room, wet bar, radiant heat, central air, and heated garage — come on! This home is the definition of living large!
We come back down to Earth with our fantastic finale. It’s a classic Arts & Crafts-style bungalow with stained glass windows and original wood trim, including eye-catching box-beam ceilings. This is a sweet home in a leafy section of Staten Island for fans of historic architecture. Classic covered porch, rear deck and detached garage, too — the dream!
