Utterly Charming 130-Year-Old Mansion Costs Only $785,000

New, 28 comments

Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.

From the looks of it, this Stapleton mansion is perfectly respectable; charming, even, with its mansard slate roof, big front porch, and New York Harbor views. So it seems dubious that the six-bedroom home, which dates all the way back to 1887 but looks to be in pretty good health, is only asking $785,000. Yes, it's on Staten Island, but still: the property's six-digit ask is sort of unheard of, and much less charming Staten Island mansions have asked way more in the past. The house at 351 St Pauls Avenue has been owned by the same family for 47 years. Now it's on to the next one—which, let's be real, will probably be a young couple priced out of Brooklyn.
